Back in Quilting Mode

It's been raining here in Dordognefordshire. Raining quite hard. So what is a girl to do when she can't get outside to hoe the veg patch and talk to the tomato plants. Sew of course! Been chain piecing Seminole blocks like mad. The top row isn't finished yet. I put them there for effect! ___________________________________________________________ Look at this Mock Orange. It's gone mad and the scent is wonderful. I love the way it's managed to get itself in amongst the cherries and the way this arches because of the weight of the blossom. Reminds me a bridal bouquet.
Oooops - fiddling about with a new widget and managed to do something to the comments. I think it's back to normal now, but someone left a comment and I don't know who it is as it showed up as me!

I'm glad to hear that the rain's sharing itself around! Your mock orange looks beautiful, just wish we had smellovision.

Gorgeous mock orange! I've never heard of that, but now I want some.
Your seminole piecing makes a great border for that quilt. It's wonderful fabric you're using, too.

I am so impressed with your mock orange. I wish I had one. My poor gardenia has only one bloom this year. I guess I pruned it too much last summer. The Seminole blocks look great.

We have a Mock Orange near our front door and I love the aroma from it. It's not in bloom yet so we have something to look forward to.

The flowers are beautiful. So very pretty. We like the quilt, and are looking forward to the end result.

A bridal bouquet - that's exactly what I thought when I first spotted the mock orange. Beautiful. Your quilt is coming along nicely.
