I spent about $125. And that was just for the top and backing fabric for one quilt!

on fabric - about $160 - and that was for my DH's quilt kit which he picked out AT THE STORE and also PAID for with "his" credit card (we have only 2, one he uses mostly for work and one I use for household and personal) so I didn't get into trouble!!! PS, I usually pay for my stash with cash so he can't find out!

I spent a bundle the summer myself and several othe ladies shopped for fabric for our churche's anniversary quilt, a little over $300. I think. It was great fun buying fabric on someone else's dime! :!:

I am so thankful I don't have to try to hide anything from DH. He hunts and I sew. We can buy meat cheaper and we could buy blankets cheaper but that is NOT the point.

I'm not sure what the most was at any given time not counting my machine.

I won't tell if you don't tell. We have had some quilt shops go out of business and fabric was 70% off, how can you not buy lots? I took paint samples in with the 4 colors of paint on the sheet and my neices and sisters and daughter and I took several and used them to select fabric. Was it ever fun. Husband didn't ask how much and I didn't tell. Guess I work just as hard for the money.
