quilt party

We've had so many rainy days that it's forced us to find some inside fun. Yesterday afternoon we had a quilt party, which was a HUGE hit with my kiddos. We gathered (almost) every quilt in the house and spread them out in the living room. It literally looked like a sea of quilts. It was ridiculously fun.
Afterwards, there was a lot of folding to do. We made piles and did a tally. The totals were revealed at supper. It was really, really fun to take stock!
We also thought it would be fun to host a guessing game here on the blog. Guess how many quilts are in the piles shown. I'll send a little present to the winner. (Or to the person who has the nearest guess. If there are multiple winners I'll draw one from a hat.) Go on, make your guess! Oh, and please leave me your email address, too. Please, only one guess per person.

Happy Monday to you!

I think there are all together 65 quilts in your piles and that means - in my case - about 50 good reasons for me to continue sewing quilts. Although I was recently trying to convince myself that 15 quilts are enough for a family of four... I really THANK you for these pictures!

Have a good time and better weather coming soon :O)
