The tulips and Block #3

The tulips are stretching and growing wonderfully. They're an annual here in North Texas--they will not come back next year. So I carefully selected my pink tulip bulbs, chilled them in the fridege for 6 week and placed them in the ground.

So here's the pink tulips--

Yes, a few are pink but the predominant color seems to be red.

Earlier this spinrg I made a couple of flower pot arrangements as gifts. The pots had lovely purple pansies and violas. I planted some tulips as a "surprise" for later. I'll have to find out if their surprise is pink. Purple and red wasn't what I was going for.

Speaking of pink, there is no pink in my Jelly Roll Quilt-A-Long Block #3.

I like this block. It was simple and easy to put together. And has interest even thought it seems simple.

Here's all three so far:

It's interesting to think that we don't know what the finished product will look like. But we keep pluggin' along! I'm definitely enjoying the process.

I really like the light blue and the pink fabrics in this fabric line. But there isn't much pink or light blue. Maybe they will end up being accent colors. I really do like them in the first block.
