Welcome to Gifty Galore 2014!

Wahoo! It’s almost time for our new Gifty Galore gift-making season! And, joining us this year is Anita! Yep! You have two of us to rally you, to inspire anew and create, dominate, and populate that gift-giving basket!

There are so many wonderful projects we have prepared and we just know you will love them! There is a mix of larger, weekend projects created EXCLUSIVELY for our 2014 Gifty season by IDP designers whom Anita will share, and I have smaller projects designed to accomplish in a day or less from a plethora of blog spots.

Get ready… prepare your sewing space, oil the machine, and finish up any UFOs because you’re going to be busy! I challenge you to keep up with Anita and me!

  1. Time frame is from July 7th - December 8th, 2014 for the weekly projects.
  2. Please post all project questions on Notions where you will find the complete blog. All information is kept together there for reference later and It's much easier to find!
  3. You can join at any time. If you are not a member of our Quilt With Us Community, click the "Signup and Join" box in the upper-right corner. Once you're a member, you will see a green plus sign and a link to join "Gifty Galore” in the upper-right of the group page. Clicking on the link will allow you to join Gifty Galore.

I'm sad for you too, Mary Alice! Did you get your ten minutes of rain yet? You need rain bad.

Boo house, Diane! You crack me up. The snake quilt won't be a snake quilt much longer, will it?

I don't know, Mary Alice, I think I have had it for a while. I will look at the fabric and see if it gives me any clues.

Oh no, Kathleen! Old flip phone with no cord to move pics? Oh well, we will have to live with your description! We are in the controlled scrappy club! Or no scrappy at all. Un Scrappy. Melting keyboard? Yikes, that's hot. DGS2 is mowing my yard, he's on the riding mower, and you would think I was torturing him. He agreed to mow, and I am making him stick to it. I am so mean.

Froggie, your ghostly house is so cute! Perfect fabric arrangement. I had to laugh when you asked if my phone takes pictures.  It does, but it's just a very old flip phone and I don't even know if it came with any kind of cord to get the pics to the computer. Also had to laugh about your "controlled scrappy" comment. That's me too. I just showed my sis the backing I'm making for the twin quilt and I told her I was quite proud of it because I have a problem being random with fabric placement. She laughed because she knows just how I am. I'm really excited about the backing and can't wait to show it off.

Friends, it's so hot here right now, I think my keyboard is melting.

No rain.  Only thundered and the winds blew.

Wow, Diane another 18 blocks!  Goodness, I haven't even done anything sewing related today. 

Froggie, where did you get that middle boo fabric??  That is so stinkin'  cute!  I may have to order some fabric before it runs out.

Froggie I love your BOO house.Thanks for the sympathy. I know it will eventually pass. For your info. Froggie my snake quilt now has another 18 blocks. We are up to 54. I can only do another 18 tomorrow. I wanted 9 more but I have run out of the one fabric. But I measured it on the bed and it will fir perfectly with a border and I have tons of the blue and dark grey left. So hopefully that will be Thurs. project along with more houses. I found out I need 14 not twelve! Hope you all have a good evening.

I love your house Froggie!!  I love that fabric!  Now I'm all sad I didn't get any!!

Thundering!   Maybe if we are lucky, it'll rain for a whole 10 minutes this time.  Yeah right!  I'm dreaming!

Kathleen, your phone doesn't take pics? We need to take up a collection for a camera for you!

Oh thanks, Anne, that is so sweet!

Kathleen, that's where I saw you before! Perfect points. Good for you, working on a twin size quilt.

Oh no, Diane, you are a real trooper, that's a lot of Advil. Big quilty hugs to you.  Like I tell my sis, it may not be the same pain as other people, but it's your pain, and important to deal with.

Welcome home party for Suzy Q! My machine is still in the rolley bag, so here I come! I will bring some wine.

I can't make a scrappy quilt either, Diane. I can do controlled scrappy, but I can't just grab fabric at random. Sis does, and hers look great, but I am too controlled.

I went to sit and sew today, had a great time. Sis went too. Her arm is healed now, it's still swollen a bit, but she can use it. And I made a house! Nobody understood, they kept asking me what I was making, and I would say, A house! My friend Mary said she is going to check out our group, so we may be seeing her here soon, she is loads of fun. Guess what fabric I used in my house? Oh and this one took me three hours. Lots of talking and goofing off today, I should have been able to make three in that time. Maybe tomorrow.

There are wonderful LAer's out there who are willing to donate their time Kathy. The QOL site has a listing where they will match you up with a quilter. Our group is fortunate to have a few local gals who donate their LA time. We provide the top, backing and batting and deliver and pick upp. Then we do the binding and label and send them to the site requested by the coordinator.

Barb, question..do people donate their LA time to finish these QOV or must you pay a fee to have them completed?
