For the first quilt I love the scrappy fabric choices.
Most of the quilts I'm sharing today are from the guild display. I'm not sure other than how bring it is why I liked this next quilt, I just know I did.
I love this forest quilt, make my think I should learn to do picture quilts. I just love it. The block on this next quilt were quite small. I like how the use of only two fabrics make the blocks stand out. This nest quilt is just a fun quilt. I'm always brawn to fun, simple patterns dine in cheery fabrics.
These next group of quilts were a challenge, I believe for a retreat. I'm not sure if you can see but each of these has a bit of cereal box pinned to it. Before the retreat they picked or pull a cereal box that had to be the inspiration, or colour choice for the quilt they were going to make. The quilt for this range in size from table runner to large lap quilts. I thought this was such a neat idea and I love how these quilt turned out, some of the ladies must have great imaginations.

For the rest of the weekend we did an overnight trip to Drumheller. I never knew my little girl would be do into dinosaurs. The dinosaur T-shirt I picked up for her she has been wearing every second day, hopefully this doesn't last much longer. We been for so many day trips over the years to Drumheller I didn't take as many photo as I should. The photo above was taken on a side road near Rosebud. A very pretty spot.
It had been a few years since I had been out to the Hoo Doos. They had fence off the main Hoo Doos but added stair up to the rocks behind them.
I enjoyed looking at them, but really enjoyed getting up behind them. LM was off to explore, no need to wait for mummy. I was very glad that DH was quicker on his feet than me. She can be very independent, and quite the mountain goat. Once again she had more fun here that I was expecting her to.
We also looked a various dinosaur around town, including the big dinosaur, when swimming, visit the Royal Tyrrell Museum, the little Church. All in all a very nice family weekend.
