Welcome to Gifty Galore 2016!

Our new Gifty Galore Christmas project season begins July 18th this year and runs through December 19th! And, Anita is back with more wonderful designers! 

We are using the book, Fast, Fun, and More Gifty. It is compiled and written especially for us! Our newest Gifty book is the best ever for preparing a gift-giving extravaganza. There are even MORE small and quick projects. Hey, you'll be able to use the projects in this book all year long!

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 us!

  1. Time frame is from July 18th - December 19th, 2016 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.

Great bear ideas Carol .  I'm sure it'll be wonderful.  

Oh yah,  don't forget the Cheetos Froggie !     The mixture came out more like a glaze,  so the slices are like candied, but delicious.  Just a little different than I planned.  

Can you smell them Froggie.  

Yummy apples.

I finished my daughter's birthday gift tonight! From tracing the pattern to finishing the binding, I got it done in a week. Probably sounds like a long time for such a small project but I had Addie almost every one of those days. No stitchin while babysittin!!

Safe travels Kim. I hope you don't discover anything else has been stolen other than what you already know about.

Froggie that's spelled cinnamon. LOL just had to get back at ya, I crack me up, too.

Kim did you see that picture of how the man wrapped the live chickens up to secure them during the hurricane on the Keys? He saved quite a few of them, I guess.

Lots of cute ideas for that bear quilt. 

thel your meals sound great. We had oven fried chicken, potato casserole, corn and a salad of tomatoes and cucumbers. Then I had made a Twinkie Pound Cake for dessert. It was a FB recipe and it actually turned out. Congrats on Day27!!

I managed to get one quilt block put together. I sure am having fun with the Grandma's Kitchen QA (Pat Sloan). Part of the QA is to  tell a story with each block. It's brought up a lot of fond grandma memories.

Howdy, partners. I am testing my tablet.  haven't used it for a while.

Well, I think we are all packed up. One more suitcase of last minute things to pack and that's it.

I like all the ideas for the baby bear quilts. I always try to give books as gifts to little ones. 

I'm looking forward to our virtual party tomorrow at Thel's house. Lots of good friends and food. The girls are all ready.

Well, I think it's going to be an early night. At least hopefully I can get a few hours sleep.

Will check in when I can.

Is my fried apples ready yet, Thel? I think I can smell them. I like lots of cinnannnannamon. Please. 

I wonder whhy, Carol Ann? Some big mistake, I am sure. Next time, I will ask for the version with the same amount of meat in the commercial. If I don't get it, I am screaming false advertising! I crack me up. See where that gets me. Either a good sammich or jail. 

Carol is sitting and spinning! That's another DD1 thing. She loved her sit and spin. She could make that thing spin fast, I always thought she was going to fly off. 

I love the idea of a book with the baby quilt. I always do that, and the label says that it is a snugglin' and readin' quilt.  I love reading to babies and little ones, they are so fun. I should volunteer to read at schools or on Cat in the Hat day. I just thought of that. I feel brilliant right now. I crack me up. 

Tomorrow is the big day 28! I am ready with lots of cold Diet Coke and cheetos or whatever I said I would bring. And the chair. Oh I think I said fruit. Well, I have lots of cheetos to bring too.

Whatever you choose, Carol, I'm sure it will be beautiful, and you must remember to post a picture!

The book/quilt idea is a good one that I have used in the past very successfully!  There is a great book called "The Runaway Bunny" for which I made a Roman Bricks baby quilt from 30's fabrics, with a galloping bunny appliqued on the front from a quilting book called, "Grandma's Bunnies."  Gifted with the quilt, it was an instant hit!
