Week #6: Shannon from Shannon Fraser Designs
Hello fellow 52 Quilters!
I'm Shannon popping in from Shannon Fraser Designs for this week's take-over!
I'm a fabric loving sewer who recently discovered a love for modern quilting and I haven't turned back! If it’s related to anything textile, quilty or baking (due to my insatiable sweet tooth) – you can count me in!
While I have loved fabric for quite some time and taught myself to sew several years ago so that I could enjoy those fabrics, it wasn't until about a year ago that it all finally clicked. What I loved most about the entire design process was pairing different fabrics for a new interpretation. When I started watching quilting videos on YouTube, there was an overwhelming sense of “I need to give this a go”.
Taking inspiration from the half-square triangle, what started off as creating a trial block, turned into creating my very first quilt. I was hooked!
Not only does quilting challenge your sewing skills, but the design options are endless and the pairing of fabrics, that I love so much, is an integral part of the design process. It is a thrilling journey to be on; within a community that has been beyond welcoming, informative and encouraging.
I hope to share some of that positivity and excitement with you this week. And I look forward to getting to know you better and expanding our quilting community J
