Jane Sassaman began quilting in 1980, since when her exuberant quilts and fabrics have attracted worldwide recognition: influenced by 19th century Arts and Crafts designers, her signature graphic style is nonetheless totally contemporary, her quilt Willow being named as one of the hundred best American designs of the 20th Century.

Today she’s translating her unique vision into exuberant fabrics for FreeSpirit: nature-inspired, large-scaled and colourfully enthusiastic, they’ve been lovingly referred to as ‘William Morris on anti-depressants’. Jane says she tries to express ‘the energy and mystery of our amazing universe – from the miraculous beauty of a single blossom to the complicated powers of the soul. I believe that a well-designed object can make a positive statement about its owner.
