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.

I know these are not on the "gifty projects" list, so I hope I'm not breaking any rules!! These sets of pillowcases, made with the "Hot Digity Dog" method are Chirstmas gifts - more items I can scratch off the list!! Some are made with Christmas fabrics, others are not! I still have several more sets to make to go around!!

Will they be MY Christmas present, Mari? I'd like a set of 8.

Oh, Diane, the line drawing is a great idea. I would do the same thing because I need the straight lines. I just can't bring myself to "eyeball" it and take a chance the lines won't be perfect. Although, I love Christinas version because the freehand lines are interesting and unique. I may have to reconsider those drawn lines. Look what I did, I talked myself into it!!!! Geeze!

Diane, I love those, can I please be on your Christmas list? I guess I can make my own but yours are so nice!!!!

Yep I am foolish enough to be making 30! I will do the different designs in the book and of course some from the 'I Believe' book. Yes these are the mugs from the Dollar Store. I love them as they are just a little fancier than an ordinary mug.
For the Trivet I cheated as I am a little anal and drew llines with a ruler every 1/4" from top to bottom and the lines are exactly 1/2" apart. I just couldn't do it free hand!
I love these little projects!!!!

Diane! wow, the trivit is beautiful! Your stitching is perfect! Also, the mug cozy is wonderful with that mug. Is that the mug from $ Store? Hey, its perfect with that mug cozy! I really like the shape of it. Yea, I'm with Darlene, you're making 30 of them???!!! I know they go fast though but, 30? Wow!

Diane, those are adorable! And you are making 30!?
Comment by Diane Gunter/Canada on August 3, 2009 at 6:53pm

This is what I did in my 3 hours of quilting today. All I had to do to the mug cozy was add the button. It is made from C.T. new Twilight Frost line.
The trivet actually has red stitching and dark green leaves . I choose to needle turn my leaves as I am not to fond of the raw edge applique so it took me a little longer to do. But I love it now that it is finished!

I can't keep up with you girls! I took my brother to the Dr. today and it took me 2 hours to catch up on all the comments I missed since yesterday! There is no way that any of you could have any quilting time! I may have to leave this group so I will have time to complete a project! LOL
