If you plan to float the quilts on your longarm’s frame, you’ll want something to create a little bit of tension to stabilize your quilt top. These Start Right Quilt Clips are a fast and easy way to control the layers of your quilt. The clips slide over your fabric and frame rail and will expand to fit various fabric thicknesses. Your quilt top will remain smooth and taut while you quilt!
Each package comes with 4 Start Right Quilt Clips. Each clip is 24″ long. There are two different sizes, so be sure you choose the clips that best fit your frame! If you have an APQS machine, the Standard Table uses the blue, 1.5″ diameter clips. The Deluxe Table uses the pink 2″ diameter clips.

Works great Purchased the 2” for my Innova . Does the job really well. I like to float my top and it holds it in place with no distortion. The flares on the side make it easy to remove.

Best Things EVER I love these! These grips make the tops so flat and help with tension. Recommend them !!

Nice but ...... The clips are good quality but there is an issue trying to use them with the leader grip system. It seems that the extra bulk from that system is just enough to keep the clips from holding snugly when in the path of the clips. Otherwise they work great.

My second set Loved the first set so bought a second set for the take-up roller. Fast loading without pin pricks!

Good investment I always float my quilt tops, but have found that sometimes when I get to the bottom the center has “shrunk” and the bottom edge is no longer straight. The clips are easy to use and provide the needed tension. I also use them to attach a practice sandwich off to the side of my quilt. I can easily remove to look at my stitching and see if I have my thread tension properly balanced.

Great investment Purchased these after hearing about them in Angela’s new APQS owner class. So glad I did. I have a Millie so I purchased the 2” set. So much easier to load my quilts!

Just right!! I purchased the Start Right 2" Quilt Clips for my APQS Freddie to use when I "float" tops to keep the top straight and provide a little tension. They work great. The first time I used them I was a little intimidated by them but found you just push down on them and they will slide into place. I've also used them to hold a quilt that I took off the frame and then realized I missed a small area that needed to be quilted. Easy Peasey!!
