Jane Sassaman

PATCHWORK SASSAMAN STYLE
EXTRAORDINARY BLOG TOUR

My friend Jane Sassaman has a new book.

I think Jane’s work is spectacular.


I am wonderstruck with the awesomeness and gorgeousness of Jane's work and this book.
Illinois Album 4
Jane’s fabrics are a lot like Jane’s quilts with large graphic imagery.


But she also makes many blender fabrics to go with these large scale prints.


In this book Jane shows you many techniques for using those large scale prints to perfect effect.


Here are just two of the projects from the book.
