Family Reunion

We had a wonderful time at out Johnson/Wetherington Family Reunion today...almost everyone was able to attend and we took the first group picture in years!!

Here is the reunion quilt I made several years ago where we all signed. I made  the Irish Chain pattern since we are of Scoth Irish descent and it is had appliqued, hand quilted and embellished with y0-yos made by my mama and aunt. We use it to display pictures of our relatives.

Here is the church that my grandmother attended and where we all went as children for homecomings 

and ate dinner on the grounds under these pine trees with wire strung between and table cloths spread for our feast...


Thank you Lord for the blessing of family.



  1. What a fantastic celebration! It must be so much fun to all get together and get a photo too. Your quilt is a terrific idea with great significance as well.

  2. What a great day for you and your family!! The quilt is wonderful, did you have a pattern for it, love the idea of everyone signing it.
    Happy mail will be headed your way next week, need to put it all together and mail out on Monday

  3. I love the reunion quilt! Glad you had a great time with your loved ones.

  4. What a wonderful family celebration. I love the quilt.

  5. Looks like a fun time. Love the quilt. How special to return to the church you attended! What sweet memories you surely had.

  6. Wow, that looks just like a church I've been to. Even the grounds look similar if not the same. Do you mind if I ask you the name of the church? If it's not the same church I'm stunned that it looks like the one I'm thinking of!
