    I'm in. I have most of my scraps sorted and cut along with the pattern that I will be using for each quilt. I make lots of scrap quilts but I have lots of fabrics that I have bought when on sale to make a quilt from my wish list. So far I've got two done and six more planned.

    I am in, I have too many projects started that I need to finish. Plus way too much scrap fabric in different bins that I need to go through and get organized.

    I haven't bought fabric like I have in the past. My last purchase was the beginning of December. I am a batik fan and there is a batik only store close to me and I have been avoiding it. I will spend way too much money in there.

    I am all in. no purchases unless fabric is needed to complete a project.

    Love this idea - I think I'm going to attempt it - have lots of things to catch up on and this is a great challenge - at least make it halfway through!

    I'm in. I was in last year too and stuck pretty much to the rules. Did buy one jelly roll and a couple of charm packs but no yardage at all. Made a bunch of quilt tops and now I need to get busy with getting some finished. I still have plenty of fabric to choose from.

    Well, I'm in

    I had already planned on a decluttering of my sewing room starting this week. Just this morning, I pulled out all my batting and Pellon fusibles, including all the scraps of batting that I save for small stitcheries and wall hangings. I have had it stored in 2 different places, but now, it's covering my dining room table for organizing and perhaps eliminating (gasp!) some.

    I'm in

    I have enough fabrics with pattern (kits) stored and will be pulling them out and listing them in my project notebook These are projects not yet started.

    I'm in

    I have on and near my sewing machine tables - 4 different project in various stages.

    I don't have to reorganize my fabrics - most of them are already in marked see thru small plastic boxes by yardage.

    Thank you, Paperprincess for posting this !!

    I'M IN !! Jennie

    ladydeluxe I need you to come to my place. You have always wanted to visit Nova Scotia right This is my year to finish some of the things I have started and some of the kits I have. I am not buying more fabric well it I keep saying that it will come true right. I have a hard time passing up fabric.

    Think I will start with a black and white quilt for my daughter for xmas should not have to buy anything except backing.

    Count me in! I have reached " critical mass" in terms of storage, although my 93 year old MIL said I could start putting it under her bed!LOL! My family thinks they should take photos of the stuff,organize it in files; they have no idea..

    I've been bitten by the scrappy bug. Last month I pieced two tops from my big stash and a good quilting friend sent me some fabric and patterns to play with, knowing what my colors choices and intentions were . At first I was overwhelmed by trying to narrow down my fabric choices. Once done, was on my way and I had a great time with both tops. Only thing I had to purchase was wide muslin for the backs and some wide boarder fabric. Another friend knew I had made a scrappy quilt and bought me the latest McCalls Scrappy Magazine for Christmas. There must be at l east four quilts I'd like to make from that. I put in my last fabric order to CT a couple of days ago and I'm going to stand strong against buying something just to add to the stash. Count me in.

    I have been thinking about this and deciding if I could really commit to it. That might be really hard. I love fabric! After looking at what I have, and considering the consequences of this challenge, and knowing that this is for the next 10 months, with thoughts about how much fabric I go through, and knowing that new stuff is going to come out, and looking at the batting and backings I have...

    I am in! I should only need to purchase thread and possibly an embroidery pattern or two.

    I may need to come back here for support when tempted... I don't even need to go scrappy and finishing is so freaking cool. Then when my stash is reduced I can go shopping! ha! love it!!
