Instead of using binding clips (or very similar hair barrettes) for binding clips, I just use bobby pins.  They are much cheaper than either of the other options, and they are easy to slide on and off or slide down the quilt to allow a few more stitches before removal. 

Happy quilting!

Autumn--

Great idea!  Wish I'd seen it before buying another set of clips LOL.
