Oh, and is anyone interested in Christmas type fabrics? I just found out I have quite a bit more of those than I thought I had ...

Am I the only crazy person that looks up people's towns on the map, just to see the general area of the world where my envelope will end up? It's a fascinating idea that my mail has seen so much more of the world than I have. Only Amazon warrior's corner of the earth is familiar to me. I always tell my boyfriend that one day we're going to live there (either there or Yorkshire) and I'm sure he thinks I'm slightly mad  Roll Eyes

I see I'm the only one asking for bigger pieces of fabric, so I'll just throw in some more for all of you. I don't have a specific preference for the stitching of the hexies so if you just make them according to your favorite method I'm fine. Or if you don't have the time to stitch a million hexies, pieces of fabric are fine too.

And as a swap noob, I can ask this one, but we can send out from now, right? As long as they're sent out by August 20 it's fine?

I'd be fine swapping to everyone, provided shipping costs are not too high, but I assume a few pieces of fabric or finished hexies don't weigh much (does anyone happen to have 24 hexies on hand to give me an estimate? )

If me being new to swapping turns out to be any kind of problem, I can always send the first one out right away, so I have one completed swap on my track record.

Chili mac is done! It is indeed a huge batch, I think it's even slightly more than 10 cups. It took some time as I used dried beans that had to be boiled first, but if you're using canned beans it's a very quick recipe. Don't do as I do: before you pour in your tomato sauce, double check if it's plain sauce. I noticed the smell of basil only after I poured the sauce into the pot. You dont really notice it though, because I added smoked paprika powder and it masks the basil.

Anyone wants to revive this thread? I'm currently making a batch of this: http://www.budgetbytes.com/2016/01/cheesy-vegetarian-chili-mac/

I'm in! I've never been in a swap before and I'm new to hexies as well, but I'm sure this is a good time to try both. I'm going to send in my questionnaire right now!
27  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: 2016 QuiltAlong, now with prizes! on: July 13, 2016 02:20:18 AM
July 11th check in

I've been wanting to make a house quilt for years. I have pinned about ten million pictures and I have reserved the space in my house where I want to hang it, but it just hasn't happened yet. There's going to be a lot of scraps and a lot of hand applique involved, so it's going to be a huge amount of work. I'd like to incorporate our own house and previous places we lived in.

On a different note, I have discovered the most amazing market stall on the weekly market in the city centre (most people buy their regular fabrics at street markets in here, generally fabric stores only stock more expensive, luxury fabrics)  I don't go to the market in the city centre that often, I stick to my neighbourhood market normally, but since my last visit not one but two stalls offering quilting fabrics have popped up! One sells 3 half meter pieces of fabric for 10 euro, the other one 2 1,5 meter pieces for 10. I haven't yet discovered any name brand tags on the fabric or the selvage, my guess is they're buying left over stock and they have to cut these off. Because I couldn't make sure the fabric is good quality and doesn't bleed, I pre washed it, but it certainly looks and feels like good quality fabric. I'm guessing this also means quilting is gaining popularity in here? I hope so.

I was just wondering because I've read it before and in here it would be considered very odd to give gifts beforehand, maybe also because people generally don't find out the gender of the child before the birth. Babyshowers are another thing we don't have, we only know them from reality tv series.

But in my opinion there's never a wrong moment to gift a quilt. And true friends don't even care if you're years too late. The car quilt above is a very late baby quilt for my friend's toddler that I promised her when she found out she was expecting 3,5 years ago..... he recently moved out of the nursery and into a new room and a full sized single bed so the quilt matches his new room. I'm not sure my friend is still expecting it, it might be quite a surprise by now!

July 5th check in-
I'd really like to do a kaleidoscope quilt or a double wedding ring quilt.

I bit off more than I could chew sew to speak with a paper pieced baby quilt.  I keep reminding myself that it can be sent after the baby is born... they aren't going to be aware if it came in the mail before or after they are born....

Just out of curiosity, is that an American tradition? To send gifts before the baby is born? (although I don't even know if you are American, lol). I've never heard of it before.

As a novice quilter I feel honoured to have my quilt mentioned in this list! I can't stop looking at that gorgeous Gotham quilt.
