In Full Bloom by Sue Spargo
These blocks constituted Sue's 2014 Block of the Month program, and this detailed pattern book gives you complete cutting and stitching instructions to create her 36 in. by 44 in. quilt. She found myself thinking about the many birds that she encouraged 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. As you stitch your quilt, Sue says that she "hope[s] you will 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."
