Jane’s Textile Treasure Garden
This is a glimpse into the inspirations and process of designing fabric. From dreaming to drawing, coloring and cutting. This is a colorful journey through the creative process. Jane will also bring many quilts and accessories made with her FreeSpirit fabrics. Enjoy seeing how to use these contemporary prints to make dramatic quilts.
Jane’s nature inspired art quilts have won numerous awards, have been in many national and international exhibits, and her quilt “Willow” was named as “One of the One Hundred Best American Quilts of the Century”. As you can see in her book, The Quilted Garden, Jane’s mastery of decorative arts is overflowing. Her Free Spirit fabrics for quilts, wearables and home decor have been called “William Morris on anti-depressants”. Her latest book, Patchwork Sassaman Style, illustrates her glorious fabric “in action”.
