Welcome to Gifty Galore 2015!

Wahoo! It’s almost time for our new Gifty Galore Christmas project season! And, Anita is back with all her lovely designers! 

We are using one book this year (and there's a surprise about that!), Anita's wonderful lineup of independent designers, and we are using a number of free blogger projects as well. It truly is a potpourri of project sources, but I love the lineup of goodies we will have to make.

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 6th - December 14th, 2015 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.

Yes, I am taking a decongestant, and antibiotic, and musinex, and steroid, and cough drops and Benadryl at night, Barbara! Oh too bad I don't have a heating pad. I did put some of the drops the doc prescribed for ear pain, but they aren't working. Another funny thing happened while we were on our walk. We got to the intersection, and stopped because a car was coming, he turned, and opened his door, pointed at Missy and said, 'Hey, I have one of those!' how funny. We talked about our dogs for a minute, and off he went. I haven't seen another bassett hound, but maybe he stays inside like Missy does.

Debra that is  so lucky to get these unfinished quilts. Those are very large blocks. Have fun figureing out how to use them.

Are you taking a decongestant and antibiotics for your ear, Froggie? When I was a kid, my Mom used to drop warm mineral oil into the ear and have me lie on a heating pad. Hope yours gets to feeling better.

Glad you and Missy ran into the house. Thunder and lightning are very scary.

I sewed together a bunch of 4 patches and started trimming them. They are for a star block that Eleanor Burns features in her star Quilt book. I thnk these will work well for a round robin quilt exchange. Now I can use the original quilter's fabric to make hers. 

It looks like the rain is going more north, Sheila so maybe you'll be OK for a couple of days. It's supposed to get us tomorrow morning.

I don't mean to send you my rain, Sheila. I would rather send it to Mary Alice. We are getting more rain now. Yuck. Rain, rain, go away.

My ear is killing me again! I have been taking my pills on schedule. It started hurting last night at 3AM, and is at it again.

My plans for quilting and ME'ing have gone down the drain with the rain. Missy and I went for a walk, and we were two houses from home, and heard BOOM! Yikes! Run, Missy, run, thunder! Who knew it was going to boom so early in the day?

Here is what I have so far.

Your rain is headed out way, Froggie. Very cloudy today and the wind is picking up some. Guess I'd better get the last few rows of the Walk-About top sewn together and then get the borders cut. We did have two absolutely gorgeous days, though. I have to laugh because the Memorial Curse is upon us. Every year the Memorial Tournament is played (golf) here in central Ohio and every year it rains like crazy. This coming week is the tournament and they're calling for rain every day.

Well, Debra, you've either got one heck of a large quilt or maybe 20 table toppers on your hands. Or, could it be several bed runners? Whatever they turn out to be, I'll bet they're gorgeous.

I'm here. In my pieceful happy place. I have 14 twenty by twenty blocks some done and some not. Trying to figure out what to do with them.

Where is everyone? Off for the holiday, I suppose. I am getting my new front door right now. I am sew excited. I think I will stay home, watch the rain, and enjoy my new door today.

Now you have to paint little quilt blocks in the panels, Froggie!

Comment by Linda Froggie Quilter (Okla) on Friday

Thanks, Fluff! It was very pretty here all day. Just keep the 4-7" of rain away we are supposed to get between tomorrow and Tuesday. My back yard can't take that much more rain. My couch is a lazy boy, and when I sit down, my feet go up! Of course it isn't elevated like docs mean, above your heart, but I sure feel a difference on days I don't sit and put my feet up.

I posted these on Littles, but thought I would share them here, too. I am sew excited about my garage door! I am excited to get my front door on Monday, too.

I talked to Fluff and she said she'll try to stop shading your areas gals.  It got sunny and nice here this afternoon (after the heat came on this AM) so mauybe it's working.

At least the cat is just sleeping on the the seed bed, if you know what I mean.

Had my Dr's visit this afternoon. Everything is status quo. The usual lectures about cutting the fatty foods and exercising more and , Oh Yeah...keep those feet elevated. ( I have bad circulation and the legs swell).
