One of my favorite aspects of the quilt process is attaching the binding. Its like the home stretch of a long race. I can enjoy peacefully crossing the finish line one stitch at a time.
I usually use things around the house to make that job a little easier. In a lot of my pictures you will probably spy a few children’s hair clips holding my folded binding in place. I put a clip where I begin stitching and two more clips about ten inches from where I’m heading with my stitching.
I recently bought some new clips that are specifically designed for quilting. I had the opportunity to try the clips during a sewing class last fall. I hope that they work as good as my inexpensive children’s hair clips. Similar clips are sold in quilt shops and craft stores. I ordered mine from Amazon.
