To Many Bowties

I have been working on these 2" bowties on and off for 
a while now. You can find more information on the details
here, here and here. Well I have had it with bowties. 
I have decided to make my quilt a little smaller and
by smaller I mean only about 56" x 66". This is a huge 
quilt for me.So here is the problem. I have quite a few
 leftover and my personality will not allow me to hang 
on to them until I might need them so that is where 
you come in. Guess how many blocks are left in this jar, 
leave your guess in the comment section and I will send 
these blocks to the person with the best guess.
***Hint - This jar is approximately 9" high***
Please leave your comment by Tuesday, September 17.

  5. 127. I see someone else has a very close count, but that number just cried out to me. Your quilt is just lovely. I tried to keep up with you but am just shy of 200 blocks...wish I had your tenacity.
