Sue SpargoSue Spargo Quilt Designer

Sue Spargo is a gifted quilt designer who lived a good part of her life in South Africa and England. Two very different environments and cultures inspired many of her designs, the stark contrasts between the arid beige and browns of the African bushveld and the lush greens of the rolling hills of Southern England have continued to be a rich source of ideas. Sue has embraced Tristan Italian Threads especially Genziana 12wt Wool, Seta 24wt Silk and Tre Stelle 60wt Cotton.

Quilts Size: 48” x 46” This is a wonderful quilt design by Sue Spargo taken from her experiences as a child growing up South Africa, and her visits to the Art Museum in New York City.

Greenbrier features a dynamic, folk-art quilt with a large center appliqué and fun floral blocks.

Mercer Lane is based on my 2006 Block of the Month and is available as a book and as a kit. Wool threads used on this quilt can be bought individually or as a separate kit of 20 threads.

This book is filled with quick and easy projects to make for gifts for friends and family. Many of them are available as kits also.

The 12 Pin Keeper book is based on my 2006 Pincushion of the Month club. It includes instructions for 12 large pin keepers using a large variety of different textiles and techniques. Some have handmade metal accents as well as bead and button embellishments.
