Frances:
Am i right in thinking that you use these at the edge of a table and clip the quilt, wadding and backing to the table??

It's the same kind of clip, Frances, but in a much smaller size perfect for holding bindings securely.  Here's an example...

Francis,  I use those little binder clips and they work great.  Just the right size for bindings and cheap too.

Frances I think the ones you are talking about are much larger. I bought several of those large ones at Harbor Freight to hold the backing, lining and top of the quilt when I sandwich it and get it read to pin/baste. They hold the layers down on the table and help when stretching the backing. I actually have 2 sizes of these as our church bought lighter weight tables but the edges are much thicker. These small clothes pins & clips are just for working on thinner parts of fabric. Not the entire table. Hope I explained this ok. Joyce

Nancy, I got some clover clips as a gift and I love them. I wouldn't buy them myself as they are expensive, but they do work great especially when you have curves or points to bind with bias. Now I would try  the clips on my table to baste a quilt together. This is a great idea. Thanks.

I use the clips that you buy in the camping section for holding table cloths down to secure quilts when sandwiching them.  They work great!

I use the alligator clips that are used for woodworking to hold my quilts to the table when basting.  They work really well and you can usually find them at fairly cheap prices.
