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.

When I made the eggplant pincushion, I also cut out two carrots and a pattipan squash. I'm not happy with the squash, but I love the carrots! I especially love Laraine's clever use of them as a ?headdress?! I just posted these in hte July Gifty Projects, since that's when we featured the book, Fresh Vintage Sewing.

Linda ~ yes, I remember the purse rage when purses had to coordinate with shoes. I had a TON of purses then (shoes too)!!! I don't even carry one anymore and haven't for over 5 years!!! Hee, hee!

Kit ~ you better get busy! Monday comes around soon and there's another gift project com'in!!!!

Darlene ~ NO!

I love the gift card holders! I can picture them in stars & moons for my GS, who is studying astronomy, computers for the other GS who is a computer whiz, butterflies for GD, etc. I may even make up some for the PL bazaar. Now to get busy. Right now I'm working on the pillowcases that we talked about earlier. Love it! Kit

Mari, these are so cute. Will you be filling mine with $$$$$?

How cute, I have to get busy on making some of these. Mari, I once new a lady that had to coordinate her fingernail polish with her clothes every day. That didn't make sense to me. But I could color coordinate some of these cute little gift card holders!
Happy quilting!

Kit ~ the new gift project will be up today. I have to get a few things done before I can get it up. Its sooooo cute!

RanchMom ~ Oh, I'm sorry you're having so much of a problem loading up your pic! I went to your page and saw your wine bag and coasters and they are so cute!!! And, what a beautiful pic!

Carol ~ thanks for your help! I'm going to have to look into this!

Linda ~ The "color coordinated" thing comes from my Mom; it was a must! Ha, ha! Yes, I'll leave Darlene alone although she needs a lopping! Now, you need to get busy with those ideas!!!!

Karen ~ can't wait to see your carrots! Those little veggies are soooo cute!

Happy Sunday everyone! I haven't checked in here for several days so I needed to see what you're all up to (and to see if you're talking behind my back!). Ranchmom, your winebag and coasters look great! Carol Lee, you've been BUSY! All of your projects turned out so nice, and I love your colors and embellishments!

I finally managed to finish the carrot pincushions that go with my eggplant this weekend! I'll get pics posted as soon as I can. I also made the pattipan squash, but it needs a button and my button box is safely hiding out in my office not in my sewing room, so it'll have to wait.
