When we go on vacation we take thousands of pictures! You have to make sure you have all the good shots right? Now just to weed out the best for the book? It looks like a difficult job from all the pretties you have posted. My official guess is 2,583. How's that for an educated shot in the dark guess? I would love to win the binding box. The colors are phenomenal and I see a lot of quilts in my future! The quilting bug has just bit me. I also preordered the book and can't wait to get it....
