A prim Sue Spargo quilt

Oh, but you can make a Sue Spargo quilt look prim. I am at heart a primitive quilter, also, but have to break out of that mold sometime. I made this "prim" one in reddish tones back in 2006, combination fabric and wool. I had made the original in Sue's colors and gave it away as a gift. Then decided I had to have one for myself.

  4. Well, guess I could adapt a Sue Spargo design to primitive if someone would kit the colors for me. I have a terrible time picking out colors, even on small projects. I have four 25-gallon tubs of wool I've been collecting the past few years and have to dig and dig to find the perfect color ~~ and then change my mind and dig and dig some more. Wish I had your talent for picking the perfect color combinations.

  5. I am also a big fan of Sue Spargo and have had the privilege of taking some classes from her at the Sisters' Affair. I, too, have made her Ginger Grove and just love it. It's very impressive to me that you have made TWO of them. Go, Girl!!!!

  8. I love it! I agree you can make things primitive by the color selection. I feel like I use two sides of my brain for color selection Prim part of the time and light colors other times. There are so many interesting fabrics out there. Cheri

  9. I'm so glad you shared this! I love Sue Spargo's designs, but the colors are way too bright and definitely NOT my style. Like you, I love prim colors. Love your quilt done in prim colors!

  11. I do think Sue Spargo's designs lend themselves to being prim style. I do like the prim look colors and fabrics used for one.
