This is a picture of my latest start of my hexie blocks series, taken in my super-duper photo studio: a piece of batting laid down on the kitchen counter, making sure that I don’t put it near the dishes, or onto any stray bits of gravy. Other times my photo studio is a bigger piece of batting, laid down on the guest bed upstairs, or if it’s medium-late in the afternoon, I can smooth it out on my pinwall, drag in the torchiere from my husband’s den, prop the other light up on the small stereo speaker on my desk, and make sure I turn on the camera’s flash.
Actually, considering my week, this is a stupendous output. You know, some weeks are GetMoreDone and some weeks are BarelyQuilting.
Now you know way more than you want to about how things are at my house, but I do want to thank Lee of Freshly Pieced for hosting us on WIP Wednesday, where we all scramble to get something done–or partially done–so we can post it up here and say Yes! I’m still quilting along! (I love WIP Wednesdays.) Click on her name to head back to her blog to read about others who got way more done.
But don’t forget to enter the Almost to 100 Followers Giveaway, on the post just below. I’m giving away two sets of fat quarters–in black and white–perfect to rustle up some Halloweeny quilting!

Love this block! Beautiful!
I love the way you’ve pieced this block – it’s so pretty. And your studio sounds just like mine, right down to the gravy:-)
PS, now following in Reader, so nearer to the 100 still, even if it doesn’t show up as an official follower.

I love this block, and I love your description of arranging quilty things for photographs. I have different techniques I use depending on the time of day and how many clouds are outside!
