Win this Book and Be Styling Like Jane!


New Book by Jane Sassaman
Did you know that Jane Sassaman has a terrific new book out? It's called Patchwork Sassaman Style.

Jane is the fabric designer I admire most in contemporary cloth. Like those masterful fabrics created by Charles Rennie Mackintosh from the Arts and Crafts Movement, Jane creates beautifully executed designs. She is the Rennie Mackintosh of our time!

We all know her fabric designs are colorful and graphic. And now with her new book, you'll see how perfect her fabrics and other bold fabrics are for making quilts Sassaman Style. Here she is talking about it:

Would you like one of Jane's books? Great! Today if you leave a comment on my blog, you may be the lucky winner!

And here's where you'll find more reviews and book give-aways for these dates in July. Check them out. Thanks Dragon Threads for your generosity!
