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
What’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!

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
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 math)
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.

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
