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.

I'll pass your request on Gayle!

Froggie, are you sure you are not an owl in disguise?  You are a real "hoot".  I love you any way.  I am looking forward to seeing what will be in our gifty list for this year.

Mari, whoever does the designing of the fabrics needs to give consideration to designing the first ever 100% cotton camoflauge cloth.  My oldest DGS wants me to make him a quilt with camo and I just cannot make myself use those nylonny materials.  Too much work for such inferior cloth.

Maybe that doorstop will be on our list of Gifty Gifts. Then I can make one for me and one for a gift. Like I can't do that on my own. lol.

I hate cancer.

Barbara, you probably won't want to make them all.  Your appliqué quilt sounds challenging but, beautiful!

Yes, you did say you HATE cancer but you can say it as many times as you want Froggie!!!  I had heard the rag scissors were super!  Glad for the confirmation!  Hey, I need a door stop too!

OK Mari, I am sharpening up my credit card to get me some of them there flannels. You are one lucky lady, quilting and designing all day.

Lynne, that would make me jump every time too! Car talking to me. What is the world coming to?

Gayle, your DH is one lucky man. Have I said recently that I hate cancer?

Lynne, I found my list this weekend. I have actually finished some of the projects on it! WOWEE, that was really a surprise.

Two months. HEY, I finished sewing the rag quilt for my friend. And I am about halfway done snipping. Those rag scissors are great.

Hopppy fall, Sandy!

I am excited for the new projects in two months. I need to make one of those door stops for my bedroom door. It's in a book we used last year, it kinda looks like a purse. Has a little handle.

Every week? I thought it was every month. I hope the weather stays cool long enough for me to sit and sew about 18 hrs a day for the next two months. That's how long it will take for me to make a dent in my projects. Just started an applique project that is going to be a long time in the making. The first 'block' has 78 applique pieces. I fell in love with the quilt hanging in the shop I visited and got the kit. So far I have the pattern pieces traced onto freezer paper. Next step is to sort the pieces to their fabric.

I'm going to my son's wedding reception -6 hrs away- midweek so will putting all quilts on hold soon.

Hope your Winter isn't as goofy as ours has been, Sandy B. Our Spring is springing now - had the thunderstorms last night. Pretty windy the last few days.

Glad to here of the good health reports Anne & Gayle. Take care all.

You have about 2 months Sandy.  Then, every week you'll have a new project to make for Christmas so get prepared!!!!  ;-}

What a terrible thought Mari - no spring or summer. I need something to look forward too and it only the beginning of autumn here. So far though our days have been lovely but the nights are cooling down too quickly - 45F tonight.

So how long do I have to finish my UFOs before you start with the gifties?
