    If someone locked you in your sewing room right now, and wouldnt let you out till you used up all of the fabric you have in there, how many quilts could you make with it? I laid in bed last night, thinking about this, and I think I came up with a scary amount :shock: . What about all of you?

    "If someonelocked you in your sewing room...."

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

    But, just like Wolph, I would probably die and never finish.

    Heh. I know, right?

    Like a hundred, except I know I don't have near enough backing or batting for that. SO, 10 finished quilts and 90 quilt tops.

    :lol:

    I wish
    I would be busy and happy for a long time. The thought of having nothing else to do would be so nice.

    If I only finished what I have started now and didn't start any more I would still probobly die before I was done.

    LOL It would never happen! My husband and children would first be running around wearing dirty cloths or no clothes at all, and second they would starve to death!

    I could get 5!

    OMG!! I could probably finish 200 tops without batting an eye. Then I would have to go out to replenish thread and other essentials, like chocolate.

    I would be buried in quilts. My cup would overflow, rather room.

    I honestly don't know, I didn't realize I had as much fabric as I do until I moved (in August) I still don't have it all unpacked and put away. I'm sure I would be in there at least a couple of years :) :) twice as long if I have to do much frog stitching LOL LOL

    Well, I have ideas in my head for at least 10, fabric for many more than that. But I have apparel fabric as well, home dec fabric, crochet thread, yarn. I would never get out.

    Does "sewing room" include ALL the places where fabric and supplies are stashed???

    Well, if a port-a-pot and water were also available - - - -

    ok would they move my quilt books from the hallway into the room too? And would they throw thread into the room every so often? I think I could make a roomful of quilts- that would be nice for a while anyway.

    Hmmm, interesting dilemma.
    I guess I have enough fabric for maybe 30-50 quilts. Ok, maybe more, I don't know! Of course that depends on the size, but I will go with middle-of-the-road queen size. However, I do not have enough batting otherwise I have everything else. I have batting enough for maybe three queen size and two baby quilts.

    I'd get a lot of tops done, but no actual quilts. I buy batting and backing as I get ready to finish a project. I don't have enough room to store batting.

    Way more that I could ever use in my lifetime! I would not even venture a guess as to the yardage I have put away in my sewing room...the really sad part is no one in my family will ever use all I leave when I depart this world.

    Sounds to me like we had all better hurry out and stock up on batting and thread before they lock the door on us. Oh....I had better get more wine too.....and......

    well this is sad.... but if you locked me in my sewing room it wouldn't take me long. i have enough for about 2 quilts... just started trying to build a stash. But hey, I went to Joanns yesterday and walked away with just 2 spools of thread. The lady at the checkout ask me if I closed my eyes when I walked through the store! LOL
