I'm Shannon, and I'd like to thank you for visiting my store! I am a full time electrical engineer and mom. I'm married with two boys. I'm also a quilter, pattern designer, and even a fabric designer! I've been quilting since the end of 2006, and designing patterns since 2010. I have a quite few completed so far, with several more in varying states of incompletion. I also have several fabric designs available from my spoonflower store. I am working on completing more patterns during my lunch hours at work, in the hopes that one day I can retire from engineering and stay home with my boys again. Your purchase of my patterns supports my ability to do that!
So now you've seen my patterns! You can see my fabric designs at http://www.spoonflower.com/profiles/shannonmac. I have a collection called Monkeying Around that goes with my pattern of the same name. And feel free to visit my blog at http://shannonmacdesigns.blogspot.com.
This is a block I designed to use in a quilt for a friend's niece. She loves turtles and lizards! But I couldn't find any turtle blocks that I really liked. So this is what I came up with in my lunch hour, and it was perfect!
This pattern fits a 12" square block, and can be appliqued in any method you prefer (extra seam allowance is not included so if you plan to turn the edges, add 1/4 inch around each piece.)
NOTE: The gecko blocks in the second picture are NOT my design. That was a block I got from www.fatcatpatterns.com. If you're interested in that block, you can try there!
