Today we start the new year with a fun design challenge to get your creative juices flowing for 2013!

Here is the prize! Eight half-yard cuts of the latest Sassaman fabric for Free Spirit Early Birds!

For January's contest you are invited to design and stitch a quilt top using the One + Four Patch recipe in the book, Patchwork Sassaman Style by Jane Sassaman.

But you can use any fabric that you like... Kaffe, Amy, Lonnie?... to create a quilt top only and send us a photo. No size restrictions and no quilting required!

We want to prove that Jane's recipes work with "Personality Prints" of all kinds.

As you work, try to apply some of Jane's principles, such as color blending, cropping, scale of pattern, etc.

So put on your designing caps and submit the photo of your top by January 25, 2013 to info@dragonthreads.com.

We will put the photos on this blog and let readers vote for their favorite. The winner will be announced on January 30, 2012.

The Prize: Eight half-yard cuts of Jane's Early Birds fabric in the Plum colorway, for a total of 4 yards of beautiful fabric!

Then on February 1, 2013 we will announce the next recipe contest and the prize.

All other quilt tops will be entered for the final Grand Prize to be selected by Jane Sassaman. She will be looking for the quilts that best express the "Principles for using Personality Prints" as described in Patchwork Sassaman Style.

Be creative and have fun!
