Erin McMorris

Erin McMorris worked at her first quilt show with her mom in grade school, where she witnessed firsthand the growing Art Quilt movement in the 70s. She grew up in Northwest Ohio around fabric, quilts, and art, and always knew she’d work in the arts someday. She graduated with a degree in graphic design at the University of Cincinnati, and then decided to blend her love of art and fabric, getting a textile design degree at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. She has doodled, drawn, and designed in London, San Francisco, and New York and currently designs from her home in Portland, Oregon. Her patterns have popped up on a variety of products, including bedding, women’s and children’s apparel, paper products, and towels, for companies such as Jo-Ann Stores, Lands’ End, Target, Macy’s, The Children’s Place, Ann Taylor, and GapKids.
