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.

Mari or anyone else with the book~~ can you tell me the fabric requirements for the "Bundle Up" door hanging so I can order the fabrics and book at the same time.........I want that Snowman.......

I know you won't believe me Mari but I also thought Violet would be a great name or Lavender Girl!
Another snow storm warning today and it's going to be -28 for snowflake Sat. Same as last year. When it's that cold we can't take our boys. They would freeze and so would I this year!
Did 5 more hexagons this morning. Up at 4:30 and could't sleep so figured why not.
Will check in later to see whay is happening

Hey Mari, I know what name you need if you want a girl's name -- How about Fiona Fit--I don't know what she would fit but it is perfect..........

Wee wee pads? That just sounds wrong.
No snow here in OK. We don't need no stinkin snow, or ice. I don't like either. Bah humbug. Someone else can have it. Sorry, Peg.
Yeah, what a great table runner! Your DD will love it.
Mari, how about calling it froggie? Because you will be jumping in and out of it. Froggie. Froggie Fit. Yeah. Oh, and thanks Soooooo much for putting all your fabric 40% off. Nobody else has fabric that nice for $3.57 a yard. I think I will buy about a hundred yards. Oh I can't buy that much, I have to save some money for January. How much do I need for January, anyway? $50?, no that can't be right. $90? That's probably it. Maybe DH will buy me some $3.57 fabric, I can give him a list. Wahoo!
I am still working on buying Christmas presents, no sewing for me today. OK, I just started buying Christmas presents yesterday! I still want to give everyone puff balls of polyfil. I think they would make hours of fun!
Hoppy quilting!

Thanks for all the complients on the table runner. it was lots of fun to make once I finished the tedious part of sewing all the 1 1/2 inch strips together. After that it was like playtime.
Diane - I'm so glad your friends and family are helping you with all the holiday preparations. I'm betting it's because you are the type of person always willing to help others - those good deeds come full circle.
Marguerite Louise - the curved piecing wasn't really difficult - just did lots of pinning. The 1st curved piecing quilt I did was a kit with laser precut pieces. I figured that way if there was a problem I'd know it was with my sewing and not the cutting.
Mari - new cars are such fun. We recently bought one with 4 wheel drive which has been really helpful with all the snow the last couple days.
And yes - it's still snowing :)

Mary Agnes: Cackle!!!

Peg: Fabulous table runner.

No snow in NYC. They predicted some but nary a flake, although it rained harder than it has in a long time this morning. My little puppy refused twice to walk in the rain. Thank goodness someone invented wee wee pads.

Mari: Fran Fit?
