E's Hexie Finish, CST, and Pet Project Show #37

If I said I was writing this quickly so I could go to bed, would you understand? It was a hard day in the studio, and I have so much to share over the next few days with you. But this is the big one. E's Hexie is completely finished. The binding is a Timeless Treasures print in a peachy-orange, and I couldn't be happier with it. It's girly yet modern, and sets off the quilt with a soft framing.

Even from the back it makes it feminine.

I got an extra point for putting my label on right away, and it's ready for pick up. 

I thought it would be fun to show the little orchard below my studio. The apple trees are heavy with fruit, but a couple of clothespins held this in nicely for some quick shots. I've checked it off my list. I wasn't idle for long as there's already another quilt in the frame, and I'm eager to start it in the morning.

This month of Country Living has a good article on quilts, and some smaller features, too. There are some cute ideas here. You can find it locally where you live.

Creative Space Tag

Erica from Dresses and Spurs is hosting Creative Space Tag this time. Check out her post to see where she creates. Other CST posts can be found in the header. This is a good place to look for ideas other quilters have shared about making the most of the space they have.

Now it's your turn to show off your own Pet Project. What's your current obsession, love, or new toy? Link it up with The Pet Project Show and strut your stuff!

A darling baby quilt. I admire your using minkee - I haven't had much luck with it. I guess I have to pin it to death to get it to lay right. I know it's hexies, but the first thing that jumped out at me were the blue triangles. Made me think of a mountain range - don't ask me why! Congrats on your finish. Looks like your mojo is back. Thanks for linking to WIPs Be Gone.
