Welcome to Gifty Galore 2015!

List of complete Project Lineup

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 the book, Fast, Fun, and Gifty! It is compiled and written especially for us! Anita has a 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.

Thanks, the twister is pretty easy and it's fun to see it develop.  I seem to have a fondness for Christmas fabrics.  My next 2 completed quilts waiting for their bindings are both Christmas.   1 made completely from stash and I still seem to have an abundance.  I'll post when I get  the bindings completed.

Kathleen- there are 3 Twister rulers (that I know of).  With the biggest one you use 10" blocks, smallest one you use 4" blocks and the middle size uses ? size blocks( I don't have that one).  Using the biggest ruler you're left with scraps about 4" so I saved all those and will in time make  a matching table  runner with the little ruler.

Mary--Great quilt and ready for Christmas is a bonus.

Mary Agnes--Thanks again for the tutorial link. I just took the time to make a printed copy from those instructions. While working at that I realized this is the simplest of Testalation designs. This is one of many design possibilities for my fall batiks.

Felice Navidad, Mary.  Very nice quilt.

I've seen some tutes that don't use the ruler so don't have the waste, Kathleen.  Try searching YouTube and Google.  Whatever did we do without YouTube and Google?

Mornin', Tewksbury! hehee. I love your Christmas Twister. I haven't twisted for a while, I should find a project to make. 

Mari will be sew surprised to see all the Christmas projects already fiinished. It will put a smile on her face. I hope it doesn't put her out of a job. 

I suppose I am working on a Christmas gift, too. One set of my Itty Bitty's is for DD1 for Christmas. Yippee!

Looks nice Mary! You're ahead of the game now for Christmas ☺  I've never made a twister but I understand there is a lot of waste. Are you saying you can use the smallest ruler on the parts left from cutting the twister out of this one? If so, that's super!

Good morning for a cool rainy Tewksbury.  We've had off and on rain since Sunday but looks like next week will be better.  Cool only 40-50's.  Can't complain when you see on the news the rains that Texas and Louisana have received.

Here's my Christmas Twister.  I had this ruler for a few years and finally got around to making the pattern using a layer cake I had.  I saved all my leftovers and can make a table runner using the smallest size twister ruler.  Backed it with flannel which seems to be my new thing.

I love that bag, Carol! That's my color! Abby has the luckiest teachers. First, they get to see her pretty, smiling face every day, and at the end of the year, they get a nice gift from Grandma! 

We are twins separated at birth, MaryAgnes, identical twins. That's it. Just like Daddy used to tell me, 'My sister and I, we are identical twins'. I never got that it was a joke. I was a confused kid.
