I am so fortunate to be a blogger and have great companies to work with. About two months ago I got a note from the people over at Clover Needlecraft asking if I would like to try their Jumbo Wonder Clips. Of course I said, “Yes, please?!”
Over the last two months we’ve been finishing quilts right and left so I’ve had a great chance to use them and give an good honest opinion on them. Let just say…I LOVE them!!
The look like this.
They come in a bag of 24 clips. I’ve been using mine for binding quilts. If you don’t know, I am a gal who machine binds.
I get lots of questions on how to machine bind. Here is a tutorial I did long ago that answers many of those questions. After seeing Judy at Patchwork Time’s tutorial, I have changed the way I pin. You can see her video here. Then ran across a tutorial at Cluck, Cluck, Sew. She has yet another method that you can see here.
Well now, I’m to yet another method. I sew my binding strips on just like you would for hand binding. I cut my strips at 2 3/8″ as that seems to work best for me. Then I flip the edge over and use the Jumbo Wonder Clips to hold in place. I typically work with about 8 at a time. I attach them. Then as I come along with the sewing machine I just take them out.
I have plans to use them when I bundle quilt blocks together too. After I get ten made I’ll clip them together.
Sadly, I don’t have any of the Jumbo Wonder Clips to give away but I do have a package that are similar only these are designed for use by knitters and crocheters.
Twelve of these come in a bag and are called Knitting and Crochet Jumbo Wonder Clips. Do we have any knitters or crocheters out there who would like to give them a try?? If you do, just leave a comment here telling what yarn project you’re working on.
