Sunflowers...

I don't want to get tired of the 'Fall Pumpkin' thing so I finished my Sunflower quilt and have it hanging in the breakfast room. Sometimes you can't even see bindings, but I love the dark brown framing it. The most frustrating thing about machine quilting once you get 'on a roll' is the bobbin running out. The only thing that tops that is not having one already threaded to get back to quilting. I finally decided to treat myself to more bobbins for an entire 5 bucks I got 10 new bobbins for my Pfaff Hobby quilter.
I keep asking-- why didn't I do this sooner??? For Sunday--I hope to get another binding set up on a quilted finish and set up hand sewing for the week.

It really is much, much easier if you have several bobbins ready. They are such a good investment on time saving too. Enjoy your new piece and have a great Sunday.

I know exactly what you mean. I just broke down a couple of weeks ago and ordered more bobbins for my quilting machine. Why? I don't know. Your sunflower is beautiful! What a sweet art piece for you to enjoy!

I should get myself one of those Side Winders. A luxury item but it would be oh so handy.

I never tire of Sunflowers!

I love your sunflowers! I need to get mine stitched as I too want to hang this for this fall!

Love the sidewinder!

I agree - just a few bucks spent can make a happy quilter. Such a cute little quilt!
