400th Post Giveaway!

When I started this blog I had no idea where it would take me or how long I would continue to blog.  While my posts aren't as prolific as in the beginning, I've managed to get to 400 and have no intention of stopping any time soon!  It's been a wonderful journey where I've made new and close friends and learned new quilting techniques as well as improved on many of the old!  Most of this is in no small part due to all of you who read my blog and have blogs of your own!
In celebration of this little milestone and a huge thank you to all that have stuck with me thus far, I thought why not have a guessing game for my giveaway?  Yup - guess the number of beans in the jar!  The person who comes the closest to the correct number will win a quilt kit!  Yes!  To help you out somewhat I'll tell you that the total height of the jar is 7.25 inches and it is filled to the very top with red kidney beans.
At it's widest circumference the jar measures 10.5 inches.
Here is the kit I'm giving away.  It is for the Bunny Run Kit from Bunny Hill Designs.  The pattern is in this copy of the Australian Homespun magazine which is also included.
The kit has everything you need including the backing - how great is that?  The finished quilt measures 36 x 40 inches.  You can start now and have it finished for Easter next year!

There are only a few rules for this giveaway:

1)  You must have a Google account to leave your guess on the bean count.  This will not be open to Anonymous commenters.  If you don't have a Google account you can go here and sign up for free.

2)  Please do not blog about this or post any photos from this on your blog.

3)  One comment/guess per person, please.

I'll leave this open through Monday, April 23rd.  The winner will be announced on Tuesday, April 24th.

Good Luck!!
