'Wedding Ring' Quilt Block #3 Jasmine Heaven

'Wedding Ring' B.O.W. #3 in Rest and Refreshing by Piecing the Past Quilts.

Cutting fabrics for piecing, irresistible orange batiks,
The 3 blocks I've pieced together for 'Rest and Refreshing' Quilt.

Clouds and wind, Rancho Palos Verdes, looking out over the Pacific.
Jasmine shrubs I pass on my walks, tropical and they smell heavenly.

Happy Friday from Rancho Palos Verdes!
The temperature has warmed up and the clouds are still here.
The rabbits can be seen running around on the golf course across the street. I think they're planning on taking over the world, they're reproducing fast!

I finished 'Wedding Ring' block #3 in 'Rest and Refreshing' B.O.W. by Piecing the Past Quilts, link above. The blocks are traditional and beautiful. I did add in my own colorway, however.

Missouri Star Quilt Company has a new tutorial on a,  Nine Patch on Point Quilt. 
Great idea and fun, using Amy Smart's new fabric line 'Gingham Girls. 
No I'm not getting paid to write that. It's a good tutorial and fabric line, no harm in saying what's true.

Happy Mother's Day weekend, spring is a good time to celebrate moms.
I'll be by to visit and see your projects.

Thank you, Queenie. I like that block too. I'm looking forward to starting on the next block but it will have to wait, another

Orange is never far away from my projects, it's warm and exciting, not to be helped because it's the offspring of red and

Thanks Pamela, everyone has their favorite palette and way with color. That's what
makes sharing projects and process fun!

Of rabbits and mourning doves and butterflies! Spring is delightful.
I've been on a long road trip up the west coast, you wouldn't believe all the California
poppies I've seen, orange beauties.
