Stash Fabrics Design Star Challenge | Round 2 | Shannon Fraser Designs | Quilting Cotton | Designer Fabrics |

Eeek! It’s official! I made the cut!!

I’m so thrilled to have made it to Round 2  of Stash Fabrics 2017 Design Star Challenge!!

And now I need your help!

If you’re new to this challenge, it first started last year when Stash Fabrics launched their Design Star Club.

Stash Fabrics Design Star Challenge | Round 2 | Shannon Fraser Designs | Quilting Cotton | Designer Fabrics |

This club is curated by some seriously talented makers in the industry and features the best modern fabrics. This was kicked off to showcase the latest fabrics available while also giving you a boost of creativity, so you can focus on making whatever inspires you based on the curated bundle.

You can sign up for either a monthly fat quarter or half yard bundles, each have 16 coordinating fabrics selected by their featured artist.

This year that list includes:

June 2017 – Kate Basti
July 2017 – Nicolas Ball
August 2017 – Rita Hodge
September 2017 – Michelle Wilkie
October 2017 – Cheri Lehnow
November 2017 – Amy Smart
December 2017 – Svetlana Sotak
January 2018 – Rebecca Bryan
February 2018 – Latifah Saafir
March 2018 – Tiffany Marshall
April 2018 – Suzy Williams


But that’s only 11 artists. What about the 12th, you ask?

Well, that’s where you come in!

Round 1 was open to everyone to submit as many fabric bundles as they wanted to during the qualifying period. I ended up submitting the following 3 pretty bundles:

Bundle 1

Bundle 2

Bundle 3

And I wound up making the first cut with bundle #2, along with 11 other participants 😊


For Round 2, we were given “decades” as our theme. I was initially a little stumped as I don’t normally pick fabrics or colourways based on a particular era. So, after some consideration, I thought about the 60s – specifically Twiggy and I was instantly inspired! I love the bold florals, the graphic prints and the saturated colours she wore.

I was so taken with the Leah Duncan Florascape print in marigold and built my bundle around that gorgeous floral.


Included in this bundle are the following prints:

Geos Deep in Mandarin – Leah Duncan 
Essex in Mango – Robert Kaufman 
Herringbone in Yellow – Joel Dewberry 
Summer Grove in Night – Leah Duncan 
Kona in Celadon – Robert Kaufman 
Florascape in Marigold – Leah Duncan 
Allotments in Creamsicle – Karen Lewis 
XOXO in Dandelion – Cotton + Steel 
Herringbone in Pond – Joel Dewberry 
Lea’s Bloom in Blush – Leah Duncan 
Essex in Peach – Robert Kaufman 
Savanna Glow in Mint – Leah Duncan 
Dalmation in Kumquat – Karen Lewis 
Dot in Azure -  Anne Brady 
Essex in Sunshine – Robert Kaufman 

Now comes the fun part – YOU get to decide who moves on to Round 3 by hoping over here to vote for your top 3 favourite bundles!

You can vote everyday per device through November 19.


There are so many great bundles that have been created, you’re sure to find 3 that you love and may just inspire you to get quilty!!
