Letters to my kiddos about my life - marriage, motherhood, and selfdom.

I've had a streak of luck recently in the quilting world and I am thrilled! I recently entered a giveaway on Diary of a Quilter and won a $30 gift certificate to Bloomerie Fabrics. I would normally drool over fabrics on a site like this for hours, but I decided I would try something new ;)
Hooray for winnings!
Please excuse the terrible photo as it was nighttime and I was just so excited to get my new toys! I chose a package of small Clover Wonder Clips, my first spool of Aurifil in Dove Grey, and the Night Sky pattern by JayBird Quilts. I broke open the wonder clips right away and used them when binding my Penny Patch quilt for my mom. They were amazing! Because I only had the 10, I used them in conjunction with pins, but I will be purchasing more of these little guys. The were so simple to use and held the binding without distorting the fabric, which has been my experience with pins in the past. They were especially helpful for getting the crisp mitered corners. I definitely recommend these clips. Have you used these clips before? Do you have experience with the other sizes of Clover Wonder Clips? What size would you recommend?
I haven't used the other two items yet, but I will let you know how it goes when I do!
