Refrigerated Scions that started to sprout in the frig

I cut scions off an old sour cherry in mid January , put em in a ziploc and stored in the fridge . In March I took them out to do a whip and tongue graft on some rootstock suckers that sprouted about 15 feet from original tree . The scions were starting to have green buds already when I took out of Frig ? I did the graft anyways , been 6 weeks now , no green buds no more and no new growth visible . I live in coastal Oregon and I’m starting to wonder if my tree never goes totally dormant in the winter cause it never got below freezing ? Anybody have this problem ?
