    I have enough fabric stash to quilt until 50 years past my demise so rising costs are not too much of a factor. However there is always a new fabric calling my name and if it yells loud enough, I am sure I will find a way to buy it.

    I will keep on quilting. I have a really large stash. I may need to buy more thread at some point but not fabric.

    Won't stop me. I probably will be a little more careful about what I buy. I can afford the increased prices but I have a threshold about what fabric is worth to me. $10 a yard seems to be where I get stuck, so it may mean more online shopping at lower prices if the average price in LQS goes over that.

    Hasn't fabric increased in price since any of us started quilting? We didn't stop then and I don't think we will stop now. Like many others, my stash will last for about 50 years - but who wants to use their stash. Buy more...

    Yes, I will. I'll use more of the little "stash" I have. Batting always has to be purchased - don't have a stash of that. I wonder how much the raw cotton price will affect that? ;)

    I will still be quilting but a little more selective about what I buy and what I make.
