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 modified these 2 little jewelry cases from the free 12 weeks of Christmas for my daughter and her friend. She wanted a case to carry her "personals" in and as soon as I saw it, I knew this was it. I made it a little longer to be able to put a pleat in the bottom so it could expand.

Linda, you're beautiful.. You keep putting a smile on my face...every time I read your msgs. Great! Had a nice day even tho it was windy and cold out there. Rain coming tomorrow. I'm waiting, also, for my books to come in the mail...I will be sewing like a mad-woman. Have to say "Goodnight" be back to see you in the morning. Love ya, Anne

Oh Mari, I didn't sew the buttons on tonight. Maybe in the morning before she comes over. Gotta be careful about that. I like your FQ idea, I think I will try it. With the fusible fleece stuff. Yeah.
I like it anytime I don't have to spend time at the mall. Ugh. I hate going to the mall.
I have some cute fabrics for the 'hold everything'. I have a red fabric with a beige button motif, and a beige/brown fabric that looks like piles and piles of buttons. I think I will use those fabrics. Now if I can cut that circle and get it sewed on right. Can I make mine square?
Hoppy quilting!

I can't wait for my pretty little presents book to get here so i can make those great hold everything bags. I have finished 7 pocketbooks with wallets. I will post tomorrow. I have also made basket inserts for my daughters new house addition. Tomorrow I am working on pillows for her window seat. Seems like we are all workinghard on gifts. Isn't great not too have too spend money and time at the mall!

Oh Froggie, you are so funny! Can't wait to see that f-f quilt! I think if you used the fusible interfacing, the fleece/batting version, that will give you all the stiffness you need. I also think quilting it will give it additional strength. Good idea! I would quilt two FQ's together first, then cut it out. Hey, how about cross hatching??? that would be cute!!

Mari, Yes, believe it or not, the flip flop quilt is done. But I still have to sew the buttons on, so I will take a pic when I finish the buttons. I even have the label sewed on.
I have a question about the 'Hold Everything'. Nanny Gayle has gotten me ready to make some of these. I want to use a cotton fabric, like quilting cotton, so if I use the fusible fleece, will that stiffen it up enough? I also thought about quilting through the layers, like straight stitches from the bottom to the top. Or if I feel really wacky, top to bottom.
Hoppy quilting!

The hold everything bags look real neat! I disapeared into my sewing room yesterday...doing some applique. Wow..It really pulls you right in. Working on an angel...
