    If a stranger walked up to you on the street and just handed you, something like $15,000 and told you that you could only spend it on fabric and had to use all of it in one day, could you do it? I got the idea from a movie called "Brewster's Millions".

    I could certainly spend the money, but USE it! I don't know.

    Maybe. You wouldn't have to worry about whether you needed it or not. Or could afford it or not. You could buy the whole bolt. Lots of them. Bolts of extra wide. Hmmm...could you sneak in a longarm?

    If one assumed that there were 10 yards of fabric on a bolt and that the fabric was priced at $10 per yard -

    that would be 150 bolts of fabric.

    That would be good, but 300 half bolts would be better, then, SEWING PARTY at PAM'S Come and make some quilts. Rule: one to keep one to donate.

    I would go to a LQS that had the best selection of batiks & get full bolts of everything. Then I would get a few full bolts of warm & white & warm & natural...if that would count! Full bolts of blenders and kids fabric would be next. Flannels!! I don't have any of that in my stash so whoooowee! Now I need to look at holiday prints..again full bolts please! I need as many bolts of 105" muslin backing as I can find, oh and whatever 105" blender backing too please. How am I doing? May I please get some of that garden prints...yes I'll take a bolt from the whole collection, thank you. Now that all of that is out of the way, I'll just stroll down this way and take whatever strikes my fancy. What do you mean I passed the $15,000??? I owe how much???? opps!

    If I had a baby sitter I would go to Paducah and hit all the LQS's and go crazy.

    WOW!!! That certainly would make a huge number of quilts!! Way too many quilts for me to ever sew together in my lifetime!! So I think I would use quite a bit of the fabric for my students to make charity quilts!! They would love that!! ;)
