We got to learn from Sue Spargo - live and in person

  Sue Spargo was the guest lecturer at the East Cobb Quilters’ Guild in March. While she was here she taught several classes which many of us attended. For those of you who were unable to attend, we thought you might like to see some of Sue’s quilts and some of the projects from the classes she taught. 


Mary Ellen took the leaf class and is getting an up close look at Sue’s stitching technique. Sue has a wonderful book called “Creative Stitches” that includes clear, concise directions and illustrations for many of her stitches.

  These are samples from the “Leaves” workshop. For this class, students were to baste leaves to the background wool and bring it to class to practice the stitches Sue was teaching – a leaf sampler project, so to speak.

  This is Mary Ellen’s sample. She attended another Sue Spargo class several years ago and made the vase center section. For this class she decided the leaves would make a great border for her former project. What a stroke of genius!
