Sensational House Sassaman Style

Just back from a few days collaborating with my friend, the fabulous art quilter Jane Sassaman in northern Illinois.  Jane lives in a rural farming area with prairies and plains and this time it was all green from Spring rains and looked super.

There is color everywhere at her house and grounds and so many interesting things to look at.

And inside on the walls are…..what else, QUILTS! beautiful quilts!

And on ‘my bed’ there was a beautiful quilt from Jane’s fabric line by Free Spirit.


There are many very interesting vignettes around the house. Her husband Greg is an artist too (as are her children) so it doesn’t get much better than this!

I love the way she used the Free Spirit fabric all over the house to cover speakers, chairs, pillows and tiles for the bathroom.

Check out Jane’s blog this week to see us as twins in coordinating shirts of her new fabric line!

It’s very inspiring to be with Jane in her studio and see where the magic happens! And more on why I went there in future blogs...keep following!
