Argh! I am putting a binding on my quilt and I got all the way to the corner and noticed that I ran out of bobbin thread way back at the beginning of that side, about an inch past the previous corner! That is a huge pet peeve for me. First of all, I hate running out of bobbin thread at all because then you have to stop what you are doing and put a new one in. (or if you are like me, unprepared, you have to wind a new bobbin) But the worst is to run out of bobbin thread and not realized it. You are stitching merrily along and then you notice. And nine times out of ten you ran out a long time ago. I think the worst is when you are chain piecing and by the time you notice you ran out of bobbin thread about twenty-five pieces ago. So what's your quilting pet peeve?
