    I was thinking the same thing here. I don't think I'll have enough for more than 5 quilts, and that would be tops only, maybe one full quilt. I have the same conclusion you have there :mrgreen:

    It sounds like it would be a blessing and joy and I would have to thank God for the opportunity.

    I agree...a blessing and a joy. As long as dh was cleaning, cooking and raising our boys all would be well in the world. ;)

    Pleeeeease lock me in. First though I would have to get all my fabric boxes out of my son's garage and then when all the new stuff came that I have been buying on this board, someone would have to get it under the door. Oh yeah, someone would have to keep me supplied with batting, needles and thread. But after that lock the door and throw away the key. Winter is coming and I'd much rather be locked up somewhere with my Janome and my fabric than go out when it is -30C with blowing snow. Maybe I'd come out when I ran out of fabric (which might be never)or maybe I'd just take the laptop in with me so that I could keep buying more.

    I am going in my sewing room now and leaving a note to be locked in! Peace and quiet and sewing time all to myself. What more could a girl ask for.

    I take it you mean, start to finish, or are we including UFO's. I could probably get 15-20 completed queen size, judging on my amount of batting, and then probably 12 queen tops that would actually have co-ordinating fabric, and then 20 or so that would be severely scrappy...and this doesn't include the 7 tops waiting to be quilted or the other 5 UFO's screaming " me next, me next..."

    I would feel like that too with my back, neck, shoulders etc. I would never finish using the fabric before I went.

    I could stay a lot of years doing tops, but am out of batting. So, I would have to go shopping before they lock me up and then I would need more thread and then I would have more fabric....so, yep I would never be heard from again.

    I'm in the process of using up ALL of my fabric. I have enough left to 2 king size quilts. The last one being a string quilt.

    I am so tired of looking at the fabric. I want it all gone so I can start aquiring a completely new stash.

    I am with you GlendaNixon, I have been busy making charity quilts for the childrens ward of our local hospital. I have made seven in the last two months, single bed size 58 x 78 inches. One more to quilt, another just needs the final border and another pile of fabric is sitting on the ironing board waiting to talk to me. That will make ten and I still haven't put a dent in my stash. I have vowed not to buy any more fabric but to use up what I have, I am even piecing my backings :lol:
    I get real excited when I use up fabric.

    I don't know how long I would last in my sewing room as I have 2 rolls of batting and I buy thread by the box :) :)
    Oh gosh I may never see the light of day again :cry:

    I have learned to just go touch the fabric. I could make about fifty. My quilting buddy just sent me about 12 yds of fabric. ...she buys by the bolt

    Oh boy! I can't begin to figure that out! I only have full backs for maybe 5 or 6 but I could piece them. Hmm, then if I count my scrap bags, maybe I could add 5 more. So lets say, 100 or more. But I would never have the right colors to finish any so I would have to send someone to the LQS to get that! LOL

    If I didn't take a computer in there I would get more done but I will never live long enough to use all the fabric I have.

    I am moving across country next Friday so yesterday I finally finished packing up my sewing room, 5 yrs ago when I moved here I had 34 large boxes full of fabric, and I really thought I had put a dent in that amount only to find out I have 47 large boxes of fabric now. Ran to WalMart yesterday JUST for dog food, ended up with 6 yards of cute kitchen fabric I couldn't do without, they are packed up with my underwear. So to answer the question, I would probably be in there till I died and still not use it all up! But I am open for the challenge!!!!!
