Thankyou to the 20 people who entered my competition. I loved your comments, and especially those who told me how they worked out their answers!
Some commented on the blog, a lot were emailed, and a couple in facebook messages, and also by text. Some try to leave a comment on the blog, and even though they have done it before, they can't seem to work it out again. (Maybe blogger changes things??) No matter, I loved to hear from you.
Some of you have left comments on the blog, and the contact is no-reply blogger, so I cannot reply to you. I would love to get the email address of Flossy Patched Britches, so that I can send you a reply.

You can see there is a big variation of numbers, from 543 right up to 5079. If I had done all edge to edge quilts in those years, I might have reached the high number. I have had time off for 3 surgeries in this time, and renovated a couple of houses, and did a little bit of travelling to and from family. Holidays have been going for a few days on a trip to a quilt show or conference.
I was a bit worried a few days after I put the competition on the blog, as I realised that the invoice number on my invoices is the number I was asking for them to guess. But those who have had quilts done recently don't seem to have worked this out, or at least one might have, but only after she had submitted her guess, and then it was too late.
Sorry to keep you in suspense, as you are waiting for the magic number, which is.......
By my calculations, that means that Raelene is the closest with 2600, and Island girl in second place, with a guess of 2050.
Raelene's entry came by text, in a poem, and I shall post what she said......
"What a quilting life you've had...
that 2,600 quilts we're glad...
They were given your magic touch...
to make them loved quite so much."
I showed a pic of the prize in the last post, and will find something to send to Island girl also.
Thanks for your fantastic response, and I might do another competition sometime this year.
Thanks for reading.
Blessings, From Jude
