The Story Behind ‘In Full Bloom’
When Sue Spargo began to think about the design for the 2014 Block of the
Month, animals were the uppermost images that kept coming into
my mind. I began to sketch ideas based on an animal theme. For
whatever reason, the overall design of the quilt just did not come
together. Instead I found myself thinking about the many birds that I
encourage to come into my yard to feed and as a natural extension
of those thoughts, the many flowers that are a part of their natural
habitat. Gradually, In Full Bloom came together with a large vase of
cut flowers as the dominant theme. I hope you will, as you sew your
quilt, enjoy a sense of being immersed in the joy that comes from a
beautiful garden full of flowers and the movement and song of many birds.
