Franny considers fabric design the synthesis of every aspect of her life: sewing, painting, graphic design, collage and ultimately story-telling. Fabric design is simply another form of story telling. A good story causes us to escape our world for a moment - only to bring us back to it with a greater understanding of it, and hopefully helps us to live, love and appreciate it more. Jane loves everything about quilting and the quilting industry. A scientist at heart, Jane loves the engineering behind the quilt-making process, the planning, the fabric selection, the designing and construction, and of course the quilting. She is always ready to challenge her skills when designing a new block or quilt.
