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.

Hi Diane,  I have voted and will go back for sure.  Your quilt is lovely.  You will have lots of support from this group. Hugs, Darlene

It goes until the Anniversay weekend May 15th. I would love for you to go back again. Thanks so much!!! If you can keep me posted on how I am doing that would be great as I can't get in unless I vote and I feel guilty voting for myself too many times!

Wow, Diane!  You have the majority of the votes, so far. How long does it last, so we can go back again? Wish I could see it up close (and yes, I clicked on it to enlarge) as it is really neat!!! Good luck!

Good morning all.

I have a very huge favor to ask of all of you. I have entered the LQS challenge and I was wondering if you would consider voting for me. There are 4 entries and I am #4. It is the log cabin with a flower appliqed in each corner. All you have to do is go to www.countryquiltingandmore.ca  The page will come up with the 4 items. You mark beside #4 [I hope] amd then hit vote and it will pop up a small page in the L corner and will tell you how we are all doing. Thanks so much. The prize is $100.00 at our LQS. If you are uncomfortable doing this then please ignore my request.

The weather is finally great here. My DH went golfing yesterday finally!

Have a great day.

Monday, Monday!!

ranchmom:  Sorry to hear about your mother.  Sounds like she had a good  life with wonderful children.  Maybe she's now learning to quilt where she'll be able to embellish with real stars.  Either that or she's sitting there with all the rest of our moms and they're shaking their heads as they watch our stashes grow and the number of our UFO's and WIP's increase.

Good Morn'in All!

Ranchmom, blessings to you and your family ~ your Mom is happy as a clam now watching you all from above!  I totally understand (as many others do) your grief as I have lost my Mom as well.  When I get into a pickle I so wish my Mom were here for a hug.  Life is never the same when you loose your parents.  You just adjust and move forward.

So sorry to hear of your Mom's passing ranchmom. Hopefully your fond memories of her will live forever. You have my sympathy and prayers for all.

My Mom has been gone for 10+ years, and I still miss her. I know that she is in a better place, and looking over me.

Thank You everyone for your kind thoughts and comments.  Today is going a little better then the last couple of weeks, I am on my way into to the sewing room now. 


I was my Mom's baby, my Mom always called be Babe or Honey, my older brothers and sisters said it was because she could not remember my name.  I moved away from home when I was 20 and joined the Navy and life just went on from there.  I would talk to my MOm at least once a week and in later years we would talk at least every other day.  When at 40 I was expecting my youngest child  I was home visiting my MOM and she is the one who told me I was expecting.  My mom was always proud of my ability to sew, she never liked sewing though she did make sure all three of her daughters learn how,  Mom did make quilts for all of her grandchildern but she enjoyed embroidery or needle point more.

Ranchmom, I am so sorry to hear of your loss.  I lost my Mom about 10 years ago.  She was 84.  Although I took Home Ec in school, my Mom taught me most of what I know about sewing.  She never made a quilt, but she was very impressed when I made one for her for her 75th birthday.  I was not as close to her as my younger sister and my brother, but I still want to talk to her about things and just think:  "I'll just call Mom."  Over the years it does get better, but you always miss them.  My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Fanchmom, I am sorry to hear about your loss.  I had promised my Mom that since she taught me to quilt that I would never quit when she was gone and that is the only thing that kept me going.  Within one month of her passing I started a top that I titled "mom's Window from Heaven" and I just love it.
