Summer Fair Quilt Show

Hello if you're stopping by from the Summer Fair Quilt and Recipe Show! Hello to my regular followers too, bear with me, you've seen this quilt already!

I want to share with all of you my Summertime Picnic quilt.  Summertime Picnic was a pattern that I designed to show off larger prints that you love.  It is a very quick and easy pattern (great for beginners too!)

The back was made with one of the darker prints so there wouldn't be fear in sitting it on the grass for picnic time.

I used fabrics from DS line for Joanns: Picnics and Fairgrounds.  I really love this line for summertime sewing (and even better that you can get it with a 50% off coupon!) and can't wait for her next Joanns line next month!


Since this is a quilt and recipie show and I'm showing a picnic quilt, I thought I would share my favorite picnic recipe:

My Family's Deviled Eggs

My family has made deviled eggs like this for generations.  I'm funny about my eggs and this is the ONLY way to make them in my opinion!

You need:
Eggs (however many you want, 1 egg = 2 deviled eggs.  I usually boil 9)
Mayo (Helmans is best)
Mustard
Vinegar
Paprika
  • Boil eggs as you normally would
  • Slice eggs in half, put yolks in bowl and put the white halves on a pretty egg plate
  • In bowl with yolks add 1 lid full of vinegar (about 1 tablespoon), decent squirt of mustard (more or less to taste) and a big glob of mayo (about 1 cup) and salt and pepper.  Mix all until yolks aren't chunky.
  • Put a spoonful of mixture into the sliced egg halves.
  • Sprinkle paprika on top
  • Refridgerate
There you now have the BEST egg recipe ever.  At my house we make these for all holidays and anytime there is going to be burgers on the grill!  And we have to make a lot since there isn't a single person who won't eat at least 3!  Enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to check out all of the other amazing quilts and recipes over at Gen X Quilters and a big thanks to AnneMarie for putting this together!

Your summertime picnic quilt is lovely and so smart to use a dark fabric for the backing!

Your quilt looks great! I think the fabric you picked for the back is one of my favorites of that line. The eggs sound delicious, too!
