Pebbles take forever!

I'd never tried pebble quilting before. Until today.

Pebble quilting
I love it, but it is NOT a quick way to quilt. 40" of zig zag took me two hours. Not sure how many more pebbles will be in this little quilt.
 
See my little clam shells?

I tried doing something like that by hand once - talk about forever - I have never done it again!!

I tried pebbles last week. Mine were bigger than yours and it still took forever and used a gazillion bobbins of thread. The end result is so cool though. Yours are very pretty.

I find pebbles very tricky; I love how yours have turned out.

It's kinda meditative when you get in the groove isn't it? I love the clamshells.

I have a great desire for beauty but no patience to carry it through! Kind of limiting, isn't it?

I had never even heard of pebble quilting before.
