Potato Salad and Scriptures

This week I added a few more blocks to my "Family Reunion" quilt. We met at Quilts Etc., where I am currently teaching this quilt in one of my applique clubs.

Everyone is coming along very nicely with their blocks.

Of course you can't have a family reunion without Aunt Suzanne's Potato Salad. At least we couldn't anyway!!!
This salad is missing the paprika on top. I stitched some on, but didn't like it so I "unstitched" it.


The next obvious block would be plastic utensils, wrapped in a blue and white polka dot napkin. Tied up with a bow and placed on the picnic table in preparation for the food.
Last but certainly not least, a few words from the good book that tell us of our Heavenly Fathers plan that the love of a family continues throughout the generations...

You sure are up late like me! ha! You better get to bed! LOL! It's nice and quiet around here about now so I tend to enjoy blogging or reading late at night.

Well, I have to get up early for a HS graduation at the Marriott Center so I better go to bed now. Have a good rest.

1 1/2 days left of school! Yippee!

I LOVE the eggs on the potato salad. Sorry about the paprika. How about paprika colored beads sprinkled on top? I just love your work.

Susan said...

Potato salad is a must, for sure! I love Stephanie's idea of beads for the paprika; I was going to suggest french knots. Beautiful design in your quilts.

You always come up with the best ideas for applique! How do you do it year after year? Love the potato salad. And the scripture is perfect to represent family.

I always love the scriptures and quotes you include in your quilts. So sweet. Also very fun to see your quilt on Moda Lissa's blog!

Oh Lori this is so lovely. I was sitting here looking at your amazing blog thinking "if Lori didn't start a blog I would never get to see all this inspiration". Your work is so wonderful. It is absolutely no wonder Moda was so lucky to have your quilt in their booth.
