I can't believe I actually emptied 25 bobbins of white Isacord Thread in less than a month! Today I was back upstairs winding more because I'm quilting so much white thread I really should get a second bobbin holder and start winding double the number at a time.
I like to wind on this little SideWinder I picked up from Mary Jo's Cloth Store. It's small, relatively quiet, and winds bobbins faster and better than my machine. It's one efficient little piece of equiptment!
It comes with an AC adapter, but I usually run it off batteries on the kitchen table. I always use a spool stand, no matter what type of thread I'm winding because it always works better that way.
All told, it takes around 30 minutes to wind 25 bobbins this way. And yes, if you're seriously blasting through quilts in free motion, you can easily run through 25 bobbins in a month!
As for what I'm quilting with so much white thread...
Update - Yes, I can finally tell you about this project! This is the quilt I created for my second Craftsy class - Free Motion Fillers Volume 1. Click Here to learn more about the class and save 50% today!
This class features 50 filler designs quilted in this beautiful Woven Colors quilt. This throw sized quilt was fun to put together because the blocks are SUPER simple, and the solid fabrics really let the free motion quilting designs shine.
