New Favorite Tool

Here's my newest, favorite tool!



These awesome clamps! The keys are there to show their tiny size, disguising their power!

For the last few years, I've taken a lot of quilt pictures while they lay on the grass. Well, as we all know, the quilt ends up in a trapezoid shape, distorted big-time.

Wanting to shoot them in a hanging position, for a time I used a line and clothespins to secure the quilts. But problems arise when the quilt is big and heavy.

So one day, while wondering around Harbor Freight Tools, I noticed the clamps. Small enough to not be too noticeable, but opening wide enough (1"+) to secure a quilt to a fence. Perfect!



And inexpensive too - 79 cents. Yep, my new favorite tool!

If your looking for a way to hang quilts outside for pictures, try these out - they work great!

Happy Quilting!
