Welcome to Gifty Galore 2014!

Wahoo! It’s almost time for our new Gifty Galore gift-making season! And, joining us this year is Anita! Yep! You have two of us to rally you, to inspire anew and create, dominate, and populate that gift-giving basket!

There are so many wonderful projects we have prepared and we just know you will love them! There is a mix of larger, weekend projects created EXCLUSIVELY for our 2014 Gifty season by IDP designers whom Anita will share, and I have smaller projects designed to accomplish in a day or less from a plethora of blog spots.

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 Anita and me!

  1. Time frame is from July 7th - December 8th, 2014 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.

AHA! There they are - Gorgeous & Gorgeous, Mari! I could use one of those bags, in fact. What pattern is it? OR...since you're sew experienced, you could probably whip one out for each of us in your sleep, right??? LOL!

Darn right!

Oh, Froggie! Thank you! I love my family and they put up with so much from me and still love me. How in the heck does that work?! Anyways, my blog post went up before I commented on it here. I'll have another blog post about the wedding later. It has more pics.

YES!, I started a board for ways to hang quilts and am trying to grow it. I know there are more but am particularly looking for clever ways of doing it.

And just think about this, CT pays Mari to surf the net looking for pics of camels.

Oh sorry, I just had a crazy wild hair for a while there. I recovered and went to the quilting room. Until.... DGS1 sent me a pic of his face with a huge goose egg, telling me the wind picked up right when he was tossing his flag, and he got bonked by the flag! I picked him up, and it messed up the rest of my day! I still played in the quilting room, working on the borders for the Halloween quilt. I got half of them done, and two more that I decided I didn't like. So, I did some organizing in the quilting room. What is wrong with me?

How did MaryAgnes post a comment about Mari's bags before they were posted? More gremlins, I think.

Hopppy Porcupine Day, Sheila! And Mari, the camels are gorgeous! And I love the bags, and your DD and DGD look great! your DGD is funny. Sunglasses! And the rest of the party are gorgeous, too.

Mari, I was just looking at Pinterest, and saw your post of 'ways to hang a quilt'. There are some great ideas there!

I'm feeling a need for some ice cream. Plus, I have to figure out what to do about the rest of my borders. I could use the same border, but they are oriented to be horizontal, and if they were vertical, the bats would be sideways! I am thinking that might look just fine! It is a crazy looking quilt, after all! Or maybe I will try a different border for the sides, there's several choices.

Thank you everyone! You are awesome! The girls did love the bags and that really made all the work worth it!

Mari, gorgeous wedding picture!  Wish I could get it bigger.  Love all the bags!

My attired is jeans and tee shirts, and during the summer jeans and shorts.  Tennis shoes most of the time, I'll wear sandals around the house but afraid to trip out in public so keep those tennis shoes on.  With 2 hip replacements I take no chances on anything that might trip me up.  Sad really because I lived in Birkenstocks before hip issues.

Mary Agnes, send me a cannoli too!  I've never had one!

Great wedding pic Mari. The bags turned out really nicely, too.

UhOh...I better not even look at the new catalog.  The items are always so cute.

I got the binding sewn on the front of a bed sized quilt. Now I have soemthing to keep my hands busy in the evening sewing down the backside. It's the BH mystery quilt. (Celtic Solstice)
