2017 Schedule for Arts, Crafts, Teaching & Sharing (ACTS) Ministry

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 &…

JUST SOME DOODLING!

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…

My First Quilted Piece on the New Innova!

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!…

By popular demand, the Cross Stitch Halloween quilt reprised.

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…

What do you do when you are stymied about one quilt you are making? Make another one instead!

Hello Campers!  Welcome to spring and are you all busy on your quilt projects?  I am supposed to be working on my 2nd Daughter, Becky's wedding quilt (they will be married five years next weekend - I am a bit behind) and it has been a challenge from the get-go.  We picked out the fabric last spring during a visit to her house in Plano, Texas.  Here are the fabrics:…
