I do love my Gracie quilt frame, but I still like to use my domestic machine and a walking foot for straight-line quilting on smaller projects. I was recently quilting a narrow grid and was having a hard time stuffing and shifting the quit through the machine and keeping my stitching straight, so I rolled the quilt and pinned the excess into place with a couple of straight pins. Ouch! Not a good idea. Then I remembered the big binder clips that I had in my desk...they held the quilt in place perfectly and worked like a charm!
