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.

Good morning all! I finished my tablerunner/placemat/napkin set! The color in the picture is a little off, the reds are much richer than the photo shows, but you get the idea. There are 4 placemats/napkins, and the tablerunner, but my table was only big enough to put 2. This is a birthday gift for my cousin, I love the way it turned out, now I have to find more of the fabric to make myself one!

Hi Mari - just rest and take care - well you may come on this site once in a while - but for the rest of it - don't do anything..... - here is just the same the vaccine is just starting - oh yes something else - they say........ that the young people are more at risks .. gives us your age heyyyyyyyyy- my son was in Vermont last night and he says all the kids in the team ( Lacrosse team) are getting sick - so he might skip a few practice.....

Nanny I went back and I could open the pdf file - and if you scroll you get the second page - hope you can have it

see you -off to work

Francine ~ You are so funny! I had forgotten Canadian postal codes are numbers and letters. How funny! I am so sorry for being gone. I miss Diane very much and her sense of humor. Interetsting how we all impact one another's lives. Yes, I never got tested for my flu but I checked the Center for Disease Control (CDC) website and i had all the symptoms for H1N1. Phew! What a flu! Not all areas of the US have the vaccine yet so many are coming down with it now! They are just now vaccinating health care providers Yikes!

I looked at the pattern and thank you for posting it! Nanny Gayle, Francine posted the pattern above in the discussion forums. Its named placemat! Its in .pdf form so when you click on "placemat" you'll have to click on the .pdf to open that.

Francine, Please let us know how to find the placemat pattern........

HI Mari - Am I ever glad that you are OK - well let's say that if it is that special flu once you get you are suppose to be OK... - see everything stopped here because we couldn't find you..... now you and Diane gone - that is too much for us - I am back at least for the next 2 weeks - after we will see - you what we call the flu H1N1 --- we call it the postal code flu (= your zip code) because our code here in Canada are with letters and numbers -.... and specially mine at my house is H1N 1H5...... lol
wrote to Karen about a place mat pattern I had from the Internet - and it is free and caller the store here and yes we can share it.... so I have put it above - if you don't like it please just delete it

Hi Barbara ~ thank you for the well wishes! I also am VERY happy I'm on the mend! Phew! What an ordeal!

Now, for posting pics....... take a look above in the discussion forums. There is one that is labeled Gifty Galore Guidelines. The last paragraph in that discussion tells you how to post pics. Hope that helps!

Good afternoon all! Mari, I am glad to see that you are back and on the mend. Hopefully you will be well through the holidays now.
As for me, I finished the baby quilt that I was working on. It is based on a 'thangles' pattern but I used different fabric and a different border. The back is a 'satin look' cotton fabric in a tiny butter yellow gingham check. Hope you all like it. It is the first time I have ever made anything with thangles and I think I will use them again for Christmas placemats and quick projects. They really make nice edges.
You will have to go to my photo album to see it since I don't seem to be able to figure out how to upload it directly to this page. Could someone help me with that?
Have a great afternoon everybody!

Well, uh, you're right, I don't......... but if I did.......... I still wouldn't do it.
