We came back from vacation last week, so I got caught up on quilt along blocks (the story of my summer!).
The Westering Women block for August. When I first saw this all I saw was templates, and lots of Y-seams, I was so pleased there was an easier version! This turned out to be one of my favourite blocks.
These are the latest Circa 2016 blocks, plus more of the half square triangles.
For our vacation we went out west to the Rockies in British Columbia. Although we have been before, it was our first road trip without children. We had a lovely time, and saw such beautiful sites.
Of course it is always exciting to see the mountains (we are from the prairies). It was the coldest day of our trip and snowing in the mountains.
