milestones giveaway winner!

so today's the day i annouce how many strips i cut

so they they all are.....

believe it or not- nobody was even CLOSE with their guesses, except the winner.


so how many strips were there?

so who won?
rose who came the closest with her 695 guess. she lives here in town, so i'll be taking the tote to her soon.
that was fun!

yes i am just as shocked as you guys!  each stack is 100 strips, with the stair step stacks containing 20 strips. 
so alot of you guys were curious what i was making with them....i'm doing a bargello type block.

i also don't like having a giveaway where only one person wins, so i wrote a short tute on how to sew the block that can be found here.

thanks for playing along and entertaining me! we'll do this again real soon :)


  1. I LOVE the riot of color!

  2. That is going to be a fantastic quilt. I love all of the bright colors!

  3. I love it, I love it, I love it. I was going to make that little bag for my granddaughter, but now I don't have to. Obviously my 'secret calculations' worked. Thank you, thank you Shannon. :-)

  4. Had you posted that middle picture (minus the 729) on your "guess the amount" page... hey I would have known for sure... your good! Quilt will be full of color! G

  5. This was fun, contrats to the winner!

  7. It was great fun guessing the number of strips, even if I didn't come close. Thanks for the tutorial.

  8. Love it! These are MY colours...yum yum!

  9. This quilt is going to be gorgeous! Love the colors.

  10. Aw, I didn't see this giveaway until it was too late. :(
