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. 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.

Don't know what I did to erase the last word in my post -- should be teacher gifts!

Wow Sheila!! Lucky you on the free sewing table with lift. Nice!

Adorable doll quilts Froggie.

Oh yikes on the storm damage! I hope no one was hurt.

Have a wonderful day tomorrow, Thel. So happy for you and I will be thinking about you.

Marilyn, were you doing the Itty Bitties too? Maybe the black fabric is with them. I think that was the suggested color for the bindings on the Itty Bitties.

Love your blocks, Sheila.

Nice fidget quilts, Carol. Cheerful to look at as well as to play with. And that is an awesome and practical teacher gift for sure!

Also have been working on some "fidget mini-blankets" for some of the kids with special needs at the school I sub at.  They are fun to put together and the teachers love them for the little ones who have trouble sitting still or focusing as well as visually impaired kids.  Kind of like a soft "busybox".

Love the blocks and the doll quilts....and the attic window quilts, and the new fabrics -- just all of it EXCEPT your storm damage, Froggie.  What a bummer.  Otherwise, I've been peeking in on all of you, but not enough time to post.  Finished a set of placemats as an end-of-year gift for Abby's teacher.  We are going to PA this weekend so will be able to hand deliver them.  They will go into a basket with coordinating paper plates, napkins, etc. and a nice grocery store gift card.  (Being a teacher herself, Jill always gives generous and practical teacher g

Good Evening, Gifties. Sorry to hear about your weather woes. It's absolutely fabulous (except for the heat) here in Gotham. We walked to the river this a.m. to the dog park. Chou had a wonderful time. It seemed to be big dog day. German Shepherd dogs and retrievers of various hues. It was nice and breezy so Karen and I stopped for a beer on the way back and Chou had his little dish of water. 

Can't wait to see Mitzi's finished quilt. She's going to love it. 

Yes, Mary Alice, I hesitate buying fabric from Joann's. Seems it's always something.

Great blocks, Sheila. I think I saw them on FB?

And the doll quilts are wonderful, Froggie.

Waffles. with all that fruit and maple syrup. And the kids are there for breakfast. What a great day, Barbara.

I have more than a "few" Littles and Ittys to finish (some to start).

Comment by Carol Ann Hinton yesterday

Sheila, those are two of the cutest little house blocks I've seen in a long time.  I don't know what a Splendid Sampler is, but if they are one of the blocks, it must be uh . . . splendid!

Comment by Cindy yesterday

Sheila, I really, really like your blocks. Makes me want to start cutting and stitching.

Comment by Sheila Craft yesterday

Thought I'd throw a few of my Splendid Sampler blocks in here to prove that I have actually done something while I've been away - LOL!

One of these days I'll find a panel worthy of an attic windows quilt. Haven't come across one I've liked enough for that, though.

Comment by Thel in Mid-MO yesterday

My connection is on and off with the storm,  so figured I'd check in while it was ON.  

That's crazy Mary Alice,  glad you found a pattern that can work with those strips. 

Comment by Mary Alice Espinoza yesterday

Oh no Froggie!  I sure hope the insurance covers it all.  That was some really bad wind storm! 

I loved seeing the quilts!!  Great ideas for that cat fabric, which I love!!  I've always wanted to do an attic window quilt.

Barbara, that's terrible news for your neighbor, and more so if it's someone who knew them.  I think I'm inviting myself to your breakfast!  Definitely  beats my instant cinnamon and apple oatmeal.

Froggie, those are some tiny quilts!  They are so cute though!!
