Earth n' Twig by Sue Spargo

The inspiration for this highly embellished quilt came from Sue's May 2010 visit to the beautiful city of Barcelona in Catalonia, Spain.  Barcelona is filled with artistic wonders from the new cathedral by Antoni Gaudi, where every surface is coverd with wondrous works of art, to the Picasso Museum and many, many others.  Sue's visit was during Spring, and the flowers were blooming in profusion.  Their joyousness and color were the inspiration for the center panel of Earth n' Twig.  At the pottery museum there were tiles, plates and bowls embellished with an array of birds and animals.  The pieces were in many cases several hundred years old.  Those images became the inspiration for the birds and bunnies in the border of the quilt.
