Great Binding Tip

I saw this tip the other day on some random blog, just in time for me to use it as I am binding Julianna's quilt. I can't find the blog again, so I can't give credit to the great tipster, just let it be known that I am not so great as to come up with this idea on my own.

When you are binding a quilt by hand, instead of using pins to hold the binding in place, use your daughters cute little hair clips. This prevents the thread from catching on the head of the pin, and un-threading your needle or making knots and tangles.

Don't worry about your little girls hair being out of place while you are doing this, we all know that little girls won't leave those hair clips in for more than a few minutes anyway, might as well put them to good use.

Hahahahaha. That is great. You should publish a book with 101 more useful things you can do with your daughters pretties (hair clips) than put them in her hair and lose them.

Your picture looks so professional and artsy. It looks like you are a professional blogger.

I have absolutely no idea what you are talking about.
