Sue Spargo Block

I've not been doing a huge amount of stitching the past few days, I've tried but I keep getting interrupted.  I've made a couple more star blocks and stitched a couple more stems on the French Bouquet quilt, so not much to show you.  So I thought I'd show you a block I began at a Sue Spargo workshop I went to last year at Anni Downs' shop, The Home Patch.

Ooh yuk!  I wish I'd cropped that horrible batting from the top of this picture,lol.  Definitely not a professional publisher!!

I really must finish this, I only have 1 wing and 7 circles to applique and as little or as must embellishing as I feel like adding.  I love the colours and the unique style of Sue's work.  She is a generous teacher and the quilts she brought to show us were to die for.  I used cotton instead of wool for the background fabric.  I really haven't decided what to do with it, maybe a pillow.

I hope everyone has had a great weekend and for those in the US a lovely Thanksgiving.

Bye for now,


  1. Wow, what a gorgeous quilt and so much work has gone into it. Your applique is so lovely.

  2. I love your appliqued block and I do love anything that is Sue Spargo.

  3. It is looking beautiful, love the yellows


  4. I love Sue Spargos work. It must have been wonderful to do a class with her and see her quilts in real life. Your block is beautiful!!
