Shannon Fraser became a quilter unexpectedly - in fact she says she had discounted quilting as an interest entirely!
Never say never! Shannon tells the story of textile exploration that eventually led her to quilting and pattern design. We chat about her love of saturated colors, and graphic designs, and improv as a quilter's version of a palette cleanser.
Shannon gives us a glimpse into pattern designing, and how her goal is to make each project achievable, no matter your skill level. It's a matter of clear and comprehensive instructions, working step by step, and a variety of teaching styles and supporting resources.
Shannon has published many digital patterns, hosts and collaborates on quiltalongs, and has a beautifully written blog featuring many, many tutorials.
And she has so much enthusiasm for creative arts, I know you'll love hearing her stories. Let's welcome her!
