    That's how much I'm guessestimating I've got on my shelf. Probably more. All bought in 2010. :shock:

    Makes me wonder how many good-sized lap quilts that would make me if I kept working just from stash... Do you all have this much, lots more, or what?

    oh my word. I don't even want to know how many yards of fabric I have.. I really don't. You'll have a TON of quilts.

    I know what you mean. I'm not into the 500-range, but really...I've got plenty. :oops:

    I don't know how many quilts you'd get but I sure wish I had that dilema. My stash is nowhere that large but I do keep adding to it.

    Originally I thought I didn't have a lot of fabric, so I kind of went on a buying spree... for like a week. Now, I have been organizing it and wrapping it and storing it vertically on a bookshelf now, and I now realize I have A LOT. How many quilts... I have no idea. Sounds like you have more fabric than time!

    I may be in that range, but a lot of it is apparel fabric. My resolution to not purchase any fabric except what is needed to finish projects isn't exactly a hardship at this point. Hopefully it will be by 2012. Mentally, it is not fun. I'd like to buy more batiks and large florals - my two new loves. Ah, well, this will help me learn to live on my new retirement income.

    How many quilts? A 48" by 60+" lap quilt has to take four yards, so at least 125 quilts. My church asked for 45 by 54, but that looked skimpy to me.

    I wish I had that much fabric. If I am lucky, I may have 10 yards total stash. I made a wish list of fabric does that count? LOL
