Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
Here is the 2017 schedule for meetings of the ACTS Ministry (Arts, Crafts, Teaching & Sharing) at West Hills Baptist Church in Knoxville, TN.

We multiply our joys and divide our burdens while we meet with each other. Many members of this group are not members of this church, as we met through classes that I taught. Beginners in these or other arts &…Continue

has anyone made the Jack' chain quilt? If so I would love to see it. I'm in the process of doing one of my own, what a workout. I found the pattern in a quilters newsletter dated back toJuly of 1998. This is a great pattern. Just wondering how other quilters did.

On Friday, March 10, I drove from Champaign, IL to St. Joseph, Michigan to attend a class at Accomplish Quilting on Saturday, March 11th. It was the first class for training on my new Innova machine. There were about 8 others in the class and some ladies brought their husbands with them. We got to know each other and learn more about our machines. Accomplish Quilting sells more than just Innova's and so they had others there who were learning more about their Gammill machines or other…Continue

How fun it was to work on this quilt! I didn't know how I was going to quilt the set-in triangles all around the quilt, but I laid it down and just started drawing with my rulers and my chalk pencil and out came the design! Thanks to Lisa H. Calle for her Divide and Design instruction - class at MQX Springfield (Midwest) and also her online iQuilt class! I LOVE how this turned out. Enjoy!…Continue

I received this message from the network provider this morning:

But I am happy to report that I am making progress on the quilt for Beck and Todd, the quilt that has stymied me all…Continue
My quilting friend, Riana Noyes asked me to do a post on the Halloween cross stitch quilt which is #108 in my albums. The following are pictures and some explanations/descriptions of how that quilt came to be.
First the back story. I have been quilting since I was 18 years old. I had my first child, Jamie at 23 and my second, Becky at 27. All through their childhood, I was making quilts and once upon a time, cross stitching as well. in 1984 or 85 I decided to do a Christmas…Continue
I know I have been incommunicato for awhile but I have been busy quilting! Here is the most recent quilt I finished just tonight, a few scant hours before Halloween. No, you are not crazy, this is a Christmas quilt. Sometimes, we just don't get to choose the timing of when things get accomplished.
I the winter is coming upon us, I pretty much achieved a goal... I cleaned out my basement and organized nearly everything! Nearly organized enough to buy a different house... Plastic containers are my friends... it's been hard work, but now Im at the end of this haul....
I made a few dresses this summer, and a tunic... now I want to start on a wall hanging. I am hoping all my planning will make for smooth transitions so I can continue on my path!
Looking forward to a more…Continue
