· 9:00am-4:00pm The Ten Commandments Quilt Class (American Lutheran Church, 200 East 12th). In this hands-on construction class, Teresa Coenen will introduce the center block of her Ten Commandments pattern. The pattern series will explore each of the Ten Commandments that God gave to Moses as they relate to modern society and culture. The First Commandment can be set individually as a wall hanging or table topper, or can be the beginning of the full quilt. Known primarily for her faith-based designs, Teresa (and her quilts) have traveled all over the country (and a few other countries) to share her quilting faith journey with others.
