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.

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!…
