I should probably do it

The more I sort through my fabric, the more I think that maybe I should try Becky's 50 quilt challenge. What's stopping me?

I just finished a whole big batch of quilts from stash that wouldn't count towards the total.

I'm almost completely out of off-white thread for quilting the tops.

I'm getting low on batting. There's maybe enough for a dozen more baby quilts, without digging into the Warm and Natural I've got for family quilts. I'm sure I can do more than I think I can, but it definitely won't be all fifty.

I don't wanna not be able to buy scrap bags. And I've been really good at resisting temptation for the past few months.

But it would be really good for me. I know I can make a ton of baby quilts with the scraps I already have, and picking out fabric for fifty of them would either make a big dent in the piles or encourage me to sort through and organize what I've got. I ordered a bunch of thread this morning and I won't worry about the batting until I actually need it.

Doubt I'll make it all the way to fifty, but it'll be interesting to see how long I can last.
