Meet the maker
Hi! I'm Shannon, the modern quilt pattern designer and teacher behind Shannon Fraser Designs. I like to call myself the accidental quilter as I'd discounted quilting as something I'd be interested in. That is until I made some half square triangles and I've been hooked since! I'm now on a mission to encourage you to dive into the creative, colourful and tactile world of quilting with my modern and easy to follow quilt patterns.
When I'm not spreading quilty joy, you'll normally find me working in my home studio based in Montreal, Canada sporting a messy top-knot and striped shirt, drinking coffee all while trying to wrangle my fabric stash! Check out the Blog for inspiration and the Resource section for free tutorials, patterns and loads of information to help you succeed in your quilting journey!
I purchased your Etched Diamond pattern! Wow, it's beautifully written. It's one of the best I've seen in a long time.
Thank you so much for the tiny details of simply putting the coordinating fabric letter on the piece in the instructions!
Honestly, I want to get started ASAP. Time to pull fabric!
I've had the privilege to be able to test numerous patterns for Shannon. Her patterns are so well laid out with diagrams along the way. Her instructions are so detailed including which way to press all the seams. She even includes a pressing chart for her patterns. What I love about her patterns is that they may seem very involved, but often it is a basic block that is rotated to create the design. I definitely would recommend Shannon's patterns. But the best part about Shannon's patterns is Shannon! If you ever need assistance, Shannon is more than willing to help you out! She is so kind and helpful and positive! I am so glad to have "met" her and happy to have a quilty friend such as Shannon.
I’ve made a few quilts from Shannon’s designs and I tested at least a couple. I really appreciate how Shannon writes her pattern instructions with enough details for beginners to successfully complete a quilt while coming up with designs that are fun for more seasoned quilters. Shannon’s patterns have so many size options - you can use the same pattern multiple times but never have the same quilt twice!
