    Congrats to Lynne, she’s a luuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuucky girl :D , australians are really lucky to win the big one, lately!

  2. Sharon Watt says:

    I haven’t been able to spend as much time as I would have liked to, probably only 2-3 hours, as I’m supposed to be studying to a Maths exam on the 16 May :-( Have really enjoyed the blogs that I did get to visiting, they are always so inspiring – just wish I had more time …

  3. Deonn says:

    I glanced at blogs for about 2-1/2 hours this morning, having been sequestered at the Home Machine Quilting Show since last Sunday night a week ago, helping to put on the show. And after the busy-ness of the past several weeks, Quilt Market in Salt Lake City will also be a highlight! Then I may finally have a little time to settle down! Thanks for all you do!

  4. Jan Balch says:

    I spend more time on quilt blogs than I do quilting right now… taking care of two elder relatives… but my heart is with quilts and I would love to make a beautiful tourquiose quilt out of those lovely blocks! :D I am inspired so much with the books and the blogs of other quilters. I am a watercolour artist and want so much to create and design my own artist quilts! One day it will happen for me! Thanks for your blog, I enjoy reading it! :D

  5. Cindy Cooke says:

    I got a late start, but I spent most of last evening (4 hours) pouring over the blogs. I am so inspired bythe celtic stuff that Scarlett Rose has done, and the colorways of some of the other 100 blocks creators are amazing! Too many quilts…too little time! Thanks so much just for showing these wonderfull imaages… I need to get started now! Could I be a blogger, well, maybe…but I am thankful for the inspiration regardless…

  6. Sandra McCormick says:

    I’ve been spending at least an hour a day lurking on these beautiful and inspiring blogs. I’ve just recently retired and hope to spend lots and lots of time creating some things of beauty myself. I’ll be depending on the internet for inspiration and supplies as I live in a rural area and have to travel a good distance to visit quilt shops. So to win would be the highlight of my first year of retirement……..Maybe I can even start to blog myself…..WOW…..this excites me!!

  7. Svanhild Schmidt says:

    I’ve been on vacation this week, so only about 1 hour.. Normally that would be 3-4 hrs in a week, perhaps a little more or less..

  8. Kitty says:

    I guess about an hour everyday, so probably about 7 to 10 hours a week. It makes you feel part of a bigger community and gives you tips and ideas which I love to get. When the weather is bad it might be even more. Thanks for everything.

  9. Chris says:

    This book is wonderful. I still look and wish I had more time to quilt.
    One day, it will happen – the mix of both – my daughter moving out and giving me back my sewing room and the time to try all the new blocks out in this book.

  10. Karen Lee says:

    Probably about an hour a day to see all the wonderful designs. Love the creativity of the designers. Great to see everything and get more ideas for more quilts. Enjoying all your blogs. So glad you are including people overseas. Thank you!

  11. Annette says:

    You have great projects going on! I think on average I spend half an hour a day on quilt blogs/pages!

  12. Claire says:

    I dread to think – varies depending on work schedule, but at least an hour a day & then some….! I love seeing what’s happening ‘Across the Pond’ , thank you for including ‘Overseas’.

  13. arlette says:

    I made a new math, I have 24 hours now, and just for the record, I’m not done yet, it’s such much fun, I’m so sad, it’s over now… Looking forward for noviembre!!!!
    Thank you so much for the chance, in the international people out there… :D

  14. Rena says:

    First of all I’d like to thank you for giving all the readers outside the US a chance to take part. It’s been a very inspiring week !
    Regarding your question the answer is relative depending on whom you’re asking in my household: My family would say waaaay too long while I obviously don’t think it was enough. However, probably 10 to 15 hours is all I’m prepared to confess to in public!

  15. Lou says:

    Just got to this site today. Sorry Imissed the blog hopping. Hwever, I spent a lot of time the previous time around.

  16. JeanM says:

    Our guild show was this week, so I have been limited to a couple of hours snatched in bits now and then. I managed to visit some great sites.

  17. I would say at least one hour every night before bed. I am more tired than usual this week because of the blog hop, but it has been worth every minute!!

  18. rose says:

    Long enough to alienate my family, they all think I’ve rejected them and are using techniques like sulking and teasing to get me off the tour and back into their realm once more.

  19. Mollie Milesi says:

    It is a sunny early morning here in Jerusalem. Coffee in hand, I have just opened the Quilters Village Newsletter for inspiration for the day and discovered Quilty Pleasures. So, does just a few minutes (so far) count?

    Warm wishes and thanks to you!

  20. Helle says:

    What a generous giveaway!! Normally I spend about 1 hour a day, but this last week was very busy so I cannot have spent even a whole hour this week. Thanks for the chance!

  21. Audrey says:

    What wonderful designers! Spent too much time (10 to 15 hours) online and not enough time quilting! Can hardly wait for Vol. 3 – the first 2 were fabulous!!!

  22. Debbie says:

    I’m glad I’m in good company, because it really is a lot! Could be up to 10-15 a week, I’m not sure. This is a great chance to win those great books and fabric. Thanks for counting me in.

  23. Ariane says:

    I love looking at quilt blogs for inspiration. I probably spend about 2 hours a day looking at blogs. I don’t usually do it all in one sitting though. Just half an hour here and there when I have a chance.
