Loading Up

 You are right - I am going someplace..... but can you guess how many Quilts of Valor one can fit in this vehicle?

This is the side view..............
Here is the rear view..................Umm and just so you know I added a few more to the vehicle after the picture. I found a few empty spaces!








All this loading up makes me wonder how Santa gets everything into his sleigh. The elves must get packing classes....

So Give me a Guess as to How many Quilts of Valor are loaded up and ready to go - and all of you who give me the right number will be entered into a drawing.

What will you win? A really cool Quilt of Valor quilt pattern and enough cut strips to make it. ( I will have to add a picture later, becuase I am too tired, and too lazy, to go downstairs and take a picture for you .....)

You have until Thursday the 23rd at 8pm to enter.

Merry Christmas!!

I will guess 132 quilts. My what a wonderful sight, you've got quite a payload there. Give yourself a pat on the back and treat yourself to a chocolately mocha or something you enjoy. This is wonderful!

I guess it is 175.
One time I was taking donated fabric home, and found out my car trunk would hold 500 yards.

I enjoyed reading the various guesses. I once loaded my car with yards of fabric --- my husband was concerned about the shock absorbers---something I never thought of. My guess is
110. What a terrific job you all did!

Hi Alcia:
I guess 139 quilts. If that's not the right number you sure have a lot of them in there! I love to see pictures of them, especially when you are delivering. What you do is so appreciated, not only by the veterans but by all of us on the sidelines. Joyce email retiredgijo@yahoo.com

Merry christmas to you and your family.
