Bobbins Without End

You know you're pebbling when...


... you prepare this many bobbins and know they still won't be enough to finish the quilting on a quilt that's over half done!

In quilting every free minute I have, including time before leaving for an appointment, I've figured out that it takes me about 16 min to quilt one bobbin-worth of pebbles :) No idea how that compares to anything, but there's a random fact for you!

WOW that's a lot of bobbins!! I now understand why people who machine quilt buy those big cones :0)

I feel for you! I often count my quilt by how many bobbins it takes, too. Counting, adding, multiplying - they all seem to be a constant in a quilter's world, huh?
