This is my prize from SewCalGal's virtual Christmas quilt show last month (she blogs here and here)! It is a book --Sizzling Circles, and a special circle-making ruler by Lacey J. Hill (who blogs here). Lacey describes the blocks in the book as "Orange Peels on steroids." There is a bag pattern in the book that looks very interesting. Lacey also threw in a pattern she designed called "Hills of New Jersey." It features large print fabrics designed by one of my favorite fabric designers, Ro Gregg.
It's still cold here
and I saw this frost covered tree when I walked the dog this morning.
But inside my hibiscus trees are blooming! This tree had three, count 'em, three large yellow blooms! I had a tough time deciding which picture to post, they were all so beautiful. I like the red flowers, but the yellow ones are my favorites.
