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!

Oh my! Soooo many comments already! I'm guessing you have 44 quilts piled up.
I can see the kids having fun with this. They could swim through that many quilts, or play hide and seek or build a really good fort!
Do they sew yet? Maybe next rainy day they can put together the small scraps

My guess is 61? :) What a great collection! And what a fun idea!!! We get plenty of rainy days here in Seattle- so I'll have to try this with the kids although I don't have nearly as many quilts!!!
And you didn't make forts?
Much more fun than video games Mom.
Happy Sewing and have a great summer with your beautiful children.
44? I'm impressed - you are so very productive!

54 will be the number for me! I would love to just pick up those stacks and hug and caress them! Call me crazy but, they just look so inviting!
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)
