Time to glue some appliquรฉ. Not sure about those buds though. Iโ€™ll sleep on it. #fourseasonsquilt #applique #patchwork #sfielke #materialobsession2

Not sure about my trees. Will have a sleep on it before I do any gluing. #fourseasonsquilt #libertyoflondon #Dresden #materialobsession2 #sfielke

Decided to go the way of the #Dresden with my stash of #libertyoflondon strips. @pinkcastlefabrics This is the summer block of @sfielke โ€˜s #fourseasonsquilt from #materialobsession2

Finally finished for #igquiltfest with @amyscreativeside has to be this one... a hand pieced #jazzhandsquilt (pattern by @sfielke). It took me about four years (but maybe longer) to trace out and sew all those little kite shapes together and sometimes I thought I was never going to finish it but I did and after handquilting it as well I feel the most amazing satisfaction seeing that quilt on my bed, just as I imagined it. #sfielke #materialobsession2

Now for the border. Jack thinks it should include fish, for Grandad's benefit ๐Ÿ˜‚

Whatโ€™s your oldest WIP? This might be one of my oldest WIPs from 2013... maybe time to attach the 4 patches to make the boarder and get this one done!

Visiting two friends at once! A gifted quilt from #materialobsession2 #bluebirdsandhappiness and thinking it needs a revival!

Every room looks better with a handmade quilt (in my humble home designer opinion๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚) #jazzhandsquilt #sfielke #materialobsession2 #finallyonthebed #hadtowaitforanewquiltcovertomatch #itsallaboutthequilt #handpiecing

Last of all, some up close detail of my #jazzhandsquilt pattern by @sfielke in #materialobsession2 by @sfielke and @matobsgirl. Each hexagon has 72 pieces which were all hand drawn using a template and then cut out with scissors and hand sewn together. 1440 pieces in all. I actually can't believe I did it but loved every minute of it. No surprise that it wasn't a quick finish!! #slowsewing #wildwoodfabric #joeldewberryfabric #tulapinkwideback

Get set for some overgramming! It's finally finished! I think it's been at least three years in the making. My #jazzhandsquilt pattern by @sfielke in #materialobsession2 by @sfielke and @matobsgirl (two quilt legends!). Hexagons were all pieced by hand, sashing done by machine and then back to hand for the quilting (#handquiltingisbliss). Countless fabrics in grey and yellow used but most were from a #aviaryfabric collection by @joeldewberryfabric and the blues were all from @elizabetholwen #wildwoodfabric which totally makes it in my humble opinion. Nice when you love a quilt even more at the finish than your original idea!!! It's for my bed! #cantbelieveivenevermadeaquiktformybed #makemodern #htwipit #handpiecing

Finished hand quilting this baby last night so one fat wad of #wildwoodfabric binding all ready to go on right about now! I'm a bit ridiculously excited... I think I may have started this quilt 3 years ago and it's for my bed! โ˜บ๏ธ #jazzhandsquilt #sfielke #materialobsession2

Yes! A few uninterrupted hours of sewing today courtesy of the best husband @thetrojankiwi and I just had to try a test block of this pattern instead of working on the 4826492 started projects lying around my sewing space... I was smitten with this pattern from @sfielke book #materialobsession2 the moment I saw it but couldn't decide with what fabrics and colours to go. I didn't like my first colour choices from a couple of weeks ago. I LOVE the navy now, it's the perfect way to make a beautifully crazy pattern a little more 'me'. #scrappymakesmehappy #thoughmonochromaticscrappyismyfavourite

Yay!!! I am so happy that the #missingmarket prompt for today from @katebasti is all about #theWIPthatkeepsongiving because my favorite and only WIP is a pickle dish quilt that I started in 2014 (ya, you do the math๐Ÿ˜‰)
.
The pattern in #gypsykisses from the book #materialobsession2 and I am using all #dsquilts prints for the fans and squares of the blocks.
.
This quilt is super special to me because it marks the point in my quilting where I thought I had the skills I needed to complete a quilt of this calibur. Little did I know how much I would learn along the way! You can read more about the process by checking out the hash tag #my2yearpickledish
.
Thanks for hosting this fun get to know you IG fest @gogokim and @thesewingloft I love to see what other quilters are doing with their creative energies.
.
Enjoy your Sunday! I am about ready to get into the garden for round two and plant seeds. It is supposed to be 88 degress in Portland tomorrow - and I'll be hiding and sewing in the basement working in the studio.

Basting night has come!! (Hence poor lighting photo and swinging on the chandeliers to get it!) #jazzhandsquilt Pattern by @sfielke in#materialobsession2. #icanhearrain #hopefarmerhusbanddoesntsuddenlystopworking #takenupeveryinchofbedroomfloorwithquilt

I lulled myself into a false sense of security thinking that the machine piecing bit of this quilt would be a cinch after hand piecing all those hexagons but after much pinning and frustrating unpicking of seams, the top of #jazzhandsquilt is almost finished and all the points line up! Just have to do the border now. Then I'll work on a better photo!! Pattern by @sfielke out of #materialobsession2 by @sfielke and @matobsgirl #htwipit

Loving and doubting what this sashing is bringing to this #jazzhandsquilt all at the same time!! Row 1 going together... I did put a whole row together yesterday and had to unpick every last stitch as it was all wrong! #gettingbackontrack

I have just finished my last half star for my #jazzhandsquilt by @sfielke out of #materialobsession2! I have been doing this hand piecing for over 2 years and I suddenly feel a bit lost!! Going to have to piece the rest together quickly and baste it so that I have another hand sewing project (the quilting by hand)! #htwipit @hawthornethreads

Another job jobbed as my Dad would have said. This project was abandoned some years ago. It wasn't quite going right. I dug it out of the cupboard & have been slowly making progress. Now it's done ๐Ÿ˜€. Fabrics are all left overs or remnants plus an old linen sheet that was used so much it wore through. This will go on the quilt pile, people grab one to snuggle up under on chilly nights summer or winter. It's lovely to see them get used. Poor photography & looks like some gardening is required ๐Ÿ˜ฎ. #fabric #makeityourself #makewipsnotwaste #makeitfromscratch #homemade #useitup #sewing #patchwork #fabricscraps #simplelife #simpleliving #simplethings #quilts #materialobsession2

For all those wanting to make their own Cobweb quilt - the best option is to get your hands on a copy of Material Obsession 2 by Kathy Doughty @matobsgirl and Sarah Fielke @sfielke . It's a few years old now, and there's not many copies left, but try your library or @sfielke has a few copies for sale. There don't seem to be any downloadable patterns available. These two quilts are similar to the one I'm making, but their centre stars are plain or crazy patchwork. Mine are stripes. I hope that helps. #cobwebquilt #foundationpaperpiecing #materialobsession2

Made this quilt for my littlest sister a couple of years ago now but I never photographed it till now!! You should have seen the lady's face in the quilt shop when I said orange and grey colour scheme... a bit before orange and grey took off maybe? Anyway I'll never forgot the ๐Ÿ˜ณ look and am so glad I persevered!! Quilt is Stashbuster pattern by @matobsgirl in an early book #materialobsession2. #makemodern

#igquiltfest - favorite books. I have way too many books to photograph so I decided to do a past and present shot. The book #materialobsession2 was what inspired me to start quilting. The fact that they have a quilt pattern named after a Cure song helped! The other two are recent purchases since dyeing and screenprinting are new challenges for me this year. If there are other books related to fabric printing I should check out, let me know!

And here's the really exciting bit... I have waited a whole couple of years to do this... lay out all the blocks on a bed and have a look at my handiwork! I think that if I widen the outside border a bit and maybe even the sashing, I've got enough so I can just do my four half stars and then piece together. I'm just a little bit stoked!!! #materialobsession2 @sfielke @matobsgirl

No. 18!!! Hand drawn, hand cut, needle and thread hand sewn and I think I might have enough to do 4 half stars/hexagons and then piece this quilt together!! Pattern out of masterpiece Material Obsession 2 by @matobsgirl and @sfielke. This particular pattern by @sfielke called Jazz Hands. #materialobsession2

My favorite quilt to date. This pattern came from the book, Material Obsession 2, by Kathy Doughty and Sarah Fielke. Paper-pieced and machine quilted. #materialobsession2

And this was the other entry by @louise.stuart5 - a fabulous version of @matobsgirl 's Heaven & Earth from #materialobsession2. Again hanging beautifully at @springwoodquiltshow. Another convert to quilting!!!

Slow Progress on my #materialobsession2 quilt ๐Ÿ˜„ I love the @tulapink #saltwatercollection print paired up with one of my #uglyfabrics ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„ I still don't know what the design is called originally, but it's @sfielke s appliquรฉ design from mo2 ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„

A STUNNING customer quilt top! #jazzhands pattern by @sfielke out of the #materialobsession2 book... Hand and machine pieced ๐Ÿ˜ #quilting #quiltsofinstagram #jazzhandsquilt

It hit me this morning--while buying fabric for another quilt, I forgot to even show this finish from last week! Not sure if I don't love the process more than the end result sometimes. You know? Quilting is amazing!! #pinkdoxies #aurifil #handiquilter #moda #materialobsession2 @matobsgirl

Ta-dah! Happy dancing here for Pop Stars. Two days under the wire, and I'm SO ready to clean up the Minky lint bunnies. This was one FUN quilt! Time to write it up, and link up to the Blogger's Quilt Festival. #materialobsession2 #Aurifil #minky #handiquilter #pinkdoxies #quilts @matobsgirl

Can you see the gossamer effect from the Aurifil Invisible thread? Looks just like sparkly dew on my spider webs & stars! I'm going to make it before Halloween. ๐ŸŽƒ #pinkdoxies #handiquilter #Aurifil #materialobsession2 @matobsgirl


1

Feeling somewhat like a cross between Penelope and Arachne, but the top is done. Now to test my new Aurifil Invisible thread. Please work like a dream on my Avante! #Aurifil #handiquilter #Moda #materialobsession2 #minky #pinkdoxies

I was completely satisfied with a square quilt until I found 90" Minkee at #millersdrygoods. I'm 'growing' the quilt to fit the backing now. ๐Ÿ˜ Happy weekend sewing! #pinkdoxies #materialobsession2 #Moda #minkee #minky

Big fussy cut, foundation pieced string stars from #materialobsession2. This has been a great experiment in working with values. 10 days till Halloween. 9 blocks pieced and I'm sewing them together. Fussy cutting is totally worth it here! #pinkdoxies


3

I'm averaging about 2 hours each for a 21" block, but I think this is going to be worth it. A serious stash buster! Pop Stars by Kathy Doughty #materialobsession2 #pinkdoxies
