    I figure I could do 10 years worth of bags with the fabric, several years (maybe), with my zipper supply, but would have to have someone feed me with thread, fleece and 809 at regular intervals.

    Oh please...lets try it anyway. I still have "Garbage" bags full of cloth in a storage building several miles from my house, I wish all that was unpacked as well. But, I must say in all fairness, I have one piece of batting the size of a lap robe. But then I have somewhat inherited at least 15 half full bolts of cotton. So I might be there awhile.

    Hi Wolop
    I'm with you. I'd die of starvation before I got to come out.

    Well, if a port-a-pot and water were also available - - - -
    hee hee hee....you just read my mind!
    Like somebody said in the beginning of this thread...not enough batting for more than 15, depending on the size. Some would have to be baby quilts and doll quilts, but...speaking of just tops?
    I would absolutely drown (smother) and be found under them trying to push up the daisies! :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Can I use my computer to order batting? Otherwise, I only have enough batting for about 5 quilts - but enough fabric for about 50. I have a lot of florals, many already cut into 2" squares, left from my watercolor days. What in the world am I supposed to do with them? What am I supposed to eat? I guess I can use the computer to email for food ~ ~ ~

    I'd make myself a nice squishy mattress and have a nice long quiet rest AHHHHHHHHHHHH.Then maybe do some more sewing after I got rested. Oh, that sounds like heaven.

    Hello all

    I have a 19 yr old Grandson who wants a quilt. He has picked the colors of ocean blue, lime green and black.I would like ideas for a young mans quilt with three colors.

    Thanks,

    I have been working 'for some time' on a top which will eventually have 13 blocks, each with 70 or so pieces, comprised of six different fabrics. It's scrappy, so by the time it is done, maybe 50 different fabrics. I am not very decisive about colour combos........ Oh, and the basic piece is a kite shape, and about half of them need fussy cutting....... Never mind supplies, you'd need to lock me in there for quite some time to get the pieces cut and laid out! It would be good not to have little feet walking across my 'design floor' for a while- and my sewing room has a nice garden view so I could get inspired by nature....... I even have a place to hang my ironing, which I would have to get out of the way first!

    I would die before I ran out of fabric, but I would run out of batting. Could I get some M&Ms to keep me company while I am locked up?

    It would take me 20 years to use up every scrap--I'd run out of batting after about 15 quilts, so someone would have to toss some through a window. grin. Actually I would probably be dead before its all used up. Keep telling my kids my stash is their inheritance.

    Not sure about the 100 figure, but agree with the rest of the "necessary" things as well as potty break time.

    I can hear my animals scratching at the door to the sewing room and crying "please feed me, please feed me". I know it would be a long time...I'm a fabric hoarder from way back.

    A whole bunch of tops, perhaps 7 or 8 finished quilts. But I'd probably go crazy first without a bathroom!!!! And something to drink. I already keep a few snacks in here for emergencies!
