Dog Days of Summer

   Middle of August, and someone just informed me that there is only 5 more weeks of calendar weeks of summer left. Ugh! I'm still enjoying the roses and daisies in the garden.

   Made a tour last week to Waterton to take a trip down to the USA by boat on Waterton Lake with my awesome photographer sister, aka tacky tourist. She's loaded with cameras and dressed for major rain.

I had to stop to have a peek in the Prince of Wales hotel built in 1927. She sits on the bluff overlooking the town of Waterton. The entrance side, looks like she should be in the Alps. Next time visiting here will be to enjoy High Tea.

   Enough of escaping. The 24 Block Bonanza blocks are completed. Now to put the quilt together. A block. You think you can make it? I know you can.

It's Raining It's Pouring

It's raining, it's pouring.

Ole Kitty's snoring.
And I am still sewing,
the Diamond Block Bonanza.

We couldn't go outside today, so what better time to work on the Diamond quilt.

A handful of gals in Calgary once belong to the Cotton Pickin' Quilt group. They participated in the Desperado Mystery quilt. This simple and many layout quilt will be rejuvenated later this fall. You can choose to participate online or in-house.

Stay dry.

Diamond Bonanza

   How was your long weekend? Hectic or subdued?  We took time to test some of the Block Bonanza blocks. Are you ready to see them? No! How about the colours? We've narrowed down the colours to yellow greens, browns and yellows and are thrilled with how the tested blocks look. They are even Kitty approved.

Registration will begin September 1 so stay tuned. You can now register for The Quiltnasium Relay on the right side of the blog, third from the top, to receive details for Block Bonanza.
