Jane Sassaman, quilt artist

chat w/ jane sassaman


Join Patricia Belyea of Okan Arts as she chats with the most colorful quilter in the universe—Jane Sassaman

Jane, a quilt artist, fabric designer, teacher, author, speaker, and more, brings an exuberant approach to her quilts and design work.

Self-taught, Jane created innovative techniques to craft her bold and stylized quilt art. Although her quilts are bursting with garden themes, Jane’s floral compositions are anything but ordinary.

In the twentieth century, Jane's quilt “Willow” was named one of the One Hundred Best American Quilts of the Century. This century is not over yet but Jane is sure to be on that list too!

Look forward to getting an insider peek into the woman whose decorative designs have been called “William Morris on anti-depressants.”
