The Inevitable Quilt Market Giveaway

Market is over and we are all winging, or driving back to reality. New friends were made and older friendships were strengthened. We laughed TOO much. Some of us even received gifts. I was given these FABULOUS vintage glasses by Sandy Gervais. I think they were supposed to be funny (and they are!) but I love them. They match my hair.
It is in this gift-giving spirit that Polly and I would like to give you this - a fat quarter bundle of Bar Harbor.

So - here is the blog give-away info....... Guess how long it took us to take down, pack, and put our booth into the rental van. The person who guesses closest without going over will win. In case of a tie - well, we will just have to give away something more. Here is a little help. Guess in minutes. The guess should be anywhere from 1 to 180 minutes. Yes!!!! We did it in less than 3 hours. We were so proud of ourselves. Post your guess in the comments before noon on Friday (that might be the last time I am near a computer). Happy guessing.
Laurie

What could be a better gift than a sergeants chevron quilt made with your beautiful red/white/blue fabrics.

I'm going to guess 169! it reminds me of the guessing the sweeties in the jar thing! I would go home and try and find a similar jar and similar sweeties and try it out if I could have (but of course never had a full jar...).

Not having been to quilt market or taken down a booth it has to be as much of a guess as the old sweeties!

Well done though beating your own expectations!
