I merrily started to quilt the Pineapple Blossom last night, and then I discovered a little problem.
I'm quilting it waaaaaaaaaaaay denser than I expected to. I can't help it! My machine loves free-motioning with Essential threads. Absolutely loves it. So I'm having so much fun, and shortly after I quilted the third block... uh oh! I'm out of bobbin thread.
Wait! How can I be out? I figured I'd need two bobbins at the most. I wound up 2.5, just in case! And then I find myself done with the first bobbin - not half way through the quilt - but a mere 1/10th way done! Math time: so three blocks use up 1 bobbin, and there's 30 blocks... that's TEN bobbins! Yeah. I still don't get it. I used only 4 bobbins on my sister's quilt and it's twice as big at this one!!
Therefore, half of the quilt weight is gonna be in thread alone. :P And thankfully I have enough thread, but I'll be adding more "Milk Chocolate" to my next Connecting Thread order. :)
