the answer

Wow, that was quite a response to my guessing game!

Here's the breakdown...

12 baby quilts


9 lap quilts


7 twin quilts


2 full
2 queen
2 king


for a total of 34 quilts.

27 of these were made by me

1 was bought (before I knew how to quilt)

6 were received as gifts (thank you Clair and Linda)

1 of these will be given as a gift

2 of these will be given to charity

So the surprise was that there are fewer than I expected.

Nana Nancy asked how many I have made total and how many I have given away. Total made is about 70. And out of those, I must have given away about 43 (soon to be 46).

My winners are:

dee (please send me your info, since there is no link)

and

country mouse.

Each will receive a set of the 10 fat quarters. (And I still have 1/2 yards of each, so I hope to make a quilt out of those same fabrics, eventually.)

Thanks to each of you that guessed. This was a lot of fun! I so enjoyed reading each and every comment. And thanks for leaving such encouraging words. They mean so much.

Beautiful stack of quilts! Lucky winners and lucky recipients of your quilt gifts. I wonder how many you will have this time next year?? hmmmm. . . .

Clair said...

I see that the four quilts that I made for you and your children are there. I should have know that you had such a good number (34) of quilts.

Amy Jo said...

Congrats to the winners!! I want to know how you got that stack to stand up and not fall over. Or how many times did it fall before you got the picture? :-) Miss ya.

Hip Mama Crafts said...

Wow... That is a lot! I am happy to know I wasn't too far off! I should have guessed my age huh! :)

Congratualtions to the winners.
I love that photo of the quilt stack- I would love to have it on permanent display - well until the first child jumped on it at any rate.

Dana said...

So close, just off by one! I must say that the pile is very impressive. Your family has no excuse to be cold.

Hi AmandaJean!

Thanks for stopping by my blog, and leaving such encouragement about my first big quilt. It is very much appreciated.

Hey with all you've given away, my guess of 105 quilts wasn't THAT far off! LOL! That was a fun challenge.

I've got a question for ya. I emailed you, but I'm not sure if it went through. On the improv quilts that you've made, the pink one, that you call the girls I think. Did you sew ALL the scraps together at one time, or did you make little scrap blocks, and attach them together? Did you cut the scraps to the same width, or did you sew them all together different sizes and then square them up? I love scrap quilts and I want to make something like that. Just need a little more info, and I'm off to the scrap bag. Thanks! LOVE your blog! Oh-I'm glad you like my little red suitcase. I just can't seem to pass up anything that looks vintage and adorable! Feel free to email me if you can answer those few questions for me. THANK YOU! tooterbell@gmail.com

Katherine said...

Wow. That's a lot of quilting, my friend. You are also one generous quilter.

I was sorry to discover I missed out on your counting contest... what a fun idea! I do enjoy seeing the photos of your beautiful quilts. Maybe you'll have another contest where we can guess how many quilts you'll complete this year? ;o)

Kat - Taylor Made designs said...
