We are pleased to announce the arrival of Jane’s newest FreeSpirit fabric collection, Leaf Dance, at your favorite fabric store. It is clean and contemporary. The color pallet is fresh and clear. The motifs are crisp and refined… just think Scandinavian style. Straightforward stripes and clear-cut geometrics support the breezy leaves for unlimited success in your modern fabric stash.
Each colorway fits together like a glove so the possibilities for mixing and matching are endless… resulting in fabrics that are very quiltable, wearable, embellishable and home-dec accessible.
Above is a detail from Jane's quilt Moths and Moons, which combines her signature organic applique style with her vibrant Leaf Dance fabric. It also features Jane's favorite 12 weight threads, Sew Sassy by Superior.
Below are two more quilts made with Leaf Dance, but these are strkingly geometric and contemporary. You can see how all three colorways work together wonderfully, even though each separate group reads as a single color... blue, gold and turquoise
Both of these designs are available as free patterns. The quilt on the left is called "Cross in a Square" and you can download the pattern here from FreeSpirit. The quilt on the right, Barn Raising Variations, can be downloaded here.
Stay tuned to our blog for weekly reports from the Sassaman Studio.
