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.

Thanks Ranchmom! I looked at your tea towels again. That is so cool!

Flood watch in my area tonight. Seems to be raining all around us.

Anne, where is the picture of your snowflake?

Why thank you MaryAgnes, it is a good thing the picture is not up close.

Mary Alice, the tea towels are done in the picture.  I tried to take pictures of my steps on another one to post for you but my camera's battery died. So I will just tell you how I did them.  I put two fat quarters right sides together and evened them to the same size, removing the salvage edge. I then sewed a quarter inch seam round the outside leaving an opening at the bottom to turn right side out.  I turned, pressed, sewed opening closed and then top stitched with a fancy stitch.  Giving me a double sided tea towel.  Very simple and nice to have on hand for hostess gifts.

I checked the French site and had Google translate it for me.  It helps clarify the steps.  Now to clear space to get some sewing done.  I've been working on paper work for days and days and as I've only one room I can do only one thing at a time.  I must say it is amazing where one finds little scraps of fabric.  

Great idea, Anne.  And I bet you could alternate the strips for added design.  

It's a little chilly tonight.  I'm also glad we didn't have to get bare.  Bet it's gonna be a long cold winter for the NC (Naked Cowboy to any newbie who isn't familiar).

ranchmom, I just noticed how perfect your pinwheels are.  I am very impressed.

Made A flake.. A Little flimsy... like me.. I tried anyway..had fun doing it...I'll let it dry and then check it over see what happens, when I hang it up. Nice size to hang on a window. Thanks Mari. Another idea: use 6 strips...make half of it...set it in the middle of the table, and put a candle in the center..hey a candle mat!....I know have a cuppa Anne...relax..see ya later.
