This is it Ladies - last chance to guess

Well ladies - this is it .. the lovely Lynne over at Lily'squilts .. is nearing the finish line with her beautiful colorful Kaffe Fasset creation.

On reading her blog over the past couple of weeks .. I realise that this Lynne lady is one very talented person .. I have learned about wonky blocks, Hexagons, double geese circle blocks .... (although to be honest - I don't really think that I am up to the challenge of that one yet) and other great info that has started me on the road of my first mini quilt .. I have no pics as yet .. but I am getting there .. watch this space.
But anyway back to the business in hand.... We at celticfusionfabrics are giving £20 of fabric or items of your choice to the person who guesses correctly how long it will have taken Lynne to cut, piece, occasionally rip and re-piece, measure, mend, sandwich, quilt and bind the quilt. You can have two guesses, one on my blog ( please have a look and let me know what you might fancy) and one on the Lynnes's blog The winner of the giveaway will be announced just as soon as this quilt is finished which should be over the next week or so. I still have all the old guesses stored up and all the guesses will go into the mix, if more than one person is correct, Lynne will choose my favourite of the winning comments to receive the giveaway.

  2. I can't wait to see your mini quilt Gwen!

  3. Right, I have just realised Im supposeed to be guessing hours not weeks, so my guess is 64 hours.

  4. I think it took around 76 hours to finish it!
    (BTW I guessed 82 hours there)

  5. I am guessing 85 hrs. I cant even remember what I guessed over on the other blog.
    But then I dont remember what we had for dinner last night either.
    Love the blogs and inspiration.

  6. That quilt is amazing, love the colors, it's so vibrant.
    My guess is 102 hours

  7. I'm not sure the size of this quilt and how fast or slow of a piecer/quilter she is, but my guess is that it took 26 hours total to complete this quilt in actual time (not including eating, sleeping, taking care of children, animals, etc.)

  8. I'm gonna go for 64 hours, it looks like a time consuming job!

  9. Hi Gwen, thank you so much for sponsoring this giveaway on my blog - it's been great fun. The winner is about to be announced and I will get her to get in touch with you with her address and final choices of booty from the shop! Lynne X
