Bonus: review Clover Binding clips

I just got through plucking out basting stitches and looking for any stray threads.....done! 
A whole quilt done! Hand quilted even!!! I spent too long on it, but it is fab!

Taaaa daaaaaaaa

The front

The back

My best corner

Even mitred the binding..I know right, crazy!
 I sure hope Gamma and Papa Whittle get some good grandbaby snuggle time under this puppy!
It kept me warm while I worked on it. LOL

I used a few amazon points and treated myself to these babies:


A closer look:

Clover Wonder Clips........I was skeptical. 
I had tried the ones that looked like hairclips.....yukko. Threads just kept getting all stuck in them and they just didn't do it for me. In fact, I think my daughter actually used them as hairclips and lost every dang one of them......we are talking a box of 100 here!!! 

They come in packs of 10 or boxes of 50.
I bought a box of 50. Worth. Every. Penny. 

No shifting....a nice tight grip the whole time I sewed.
Red...nuff said
No pin pokes
Not too much thread catching
You don't bleed when you step on one

Cost more than pins, but not a lot more than the good pins
I only bought one box

Ask Santa for some this Christmas, you will be glad you did!!

Happy Sewing!
