small wonders...

I bought myself a little prezzie yesterday, thanks to a 60% off coupon at Joanns. It was a box of Clover Wonder Clips.
Let me just say, where have they been all my life!
For the longest time, I've wanted to give machine binding a try, and to make a long story short, because of this handy little tool, I've completed the binding on 8 quilties in no time flat. Cra-zee.
It took binding a table runner to get the feel for using the machine to bind, but I'm happy I've got the hang of it now!
Even the corners were successful!
And with a big market coming up on the weekend, and another the week after that, being able to finish projects in half the time will be a pretty big deal!

I got the clips this summer and they are amazing! An excellent item to spend your coupon on.

I used those for the first time on a Christmas tree skirt that I made ~ they sure made life easier! Now I just need to learn how to machine bind ... :)

I've been using my clips for about a year now and absolutely LOVE them. I have arthritis in my hands and find that this helps me not need to grip the quilt so hard when binding.

Hi there, just visiting via the blogathon. I was just going to post today about my brand new box of WonderClips. I already had 10, but I saw a box of 50 at Michaels and I had a 50% coupon. Funny how this kind of purchase can make a girl happy!

any advice about the machine binding? I want to attempt it, but want it too look good.
