A Fun Contest and Fabric Giveaway!

I finished cutting the sashing and corner stones for the Patriotic quilt tonight.  So I should be able to piece the whole quilt top together this weekend. Very exciting!  The 4th of July, my dad's 60th birthday,  is my target date to finish the entire quilt.  I think I am on track.  :-)  In honor of the upcoming  holiday, I thought I would have a little contest. Scroll down to see the details.


The picture below is a stack of 1 3/4" squares that I cut for my patriotic quilt. Whoever guesses the closest to the actual number of squares will win 10 pretty fat quarters. :-)  The contest ends this Sunday the 15th of June at 6pm pacific time.   So leave your comments on this post and make sure there is a link for me to reach you if you win. Good luck!

I was going to guess it to be 350, but there is another person that has guessed that. So, I will guess 310. Your father should love this quilt!

My quess is 180. It is fun to quess but I doubt I'm too good at it. Thanks god for rotary cutters so cutting so many squares goes quickly.
