Georgia Inspiration, Easter Dinner

Quilt inspiration comes from a variety of sources - and what's more gorgeous than a Georgia O'Keefe painting?
This is a notecard that I received a long time ago, from my aunt Phyllis.  I loved the color scheme, and thought it would be fun to try to create a quilt with this scheme.
This is the result - I used the bowtie block, with black ties, and Georgia's colors for the background.  Gives an old-fashioned black a modern, clean look.

Easter dinner was pretty traditional this year - spiral-sliced ham, glazed carrots, crescent rolls (better not skip them!), and a new recipe this year - the star of the show - 

Four cheese scalloped potatoes!  You can find the recipe here.  This is a fabulous, but pretty easy recipe - my favorite kind. You start them on the stove top and finish them in the oven.  These were a huge hit, and will definitely make a repeat appearance.  Enjoy!
