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

Let's try 98 minutes. BTW your booth was just so cool!! Yesterday I looked out my fat quarter bundle of Prairie Paisley and have started planning a hexagon quilt with it - so many quilts, so little time! But I could be tempted to do a hexagon quilt of Bar Harbor fabrics instead if I win it - need to do more downeast style quilts as that's my location, but north of the border!
