2019 Nationally Featured Quilter Shannon Gillman Orr
Hello Quilty Friend,
I am an artist, illustrator, sewing pattern and fabric designer. My dream is to create beautiful textiles adn art that encourage others to find happiness in making, because making matters and the world always needs more awesome.
My artwork is licensed with Moda Fabrics. I am a reformed architect with a love of vintage kitsch and modern fresh color. Most days you can find me creating in my home studio in Northern California.
As the creator and owner of Eva Blake’s Makery, with a lifetime of sewing experience my mission is to share the joy of creating and happy making. Making matters and so do you.
Author of Choose Joy: Quilting with Intention a 30 block sampler quilt pattern and journal. My second book series Plan to Quilt Vol 1 & Vol 2 is an interactive work book and planning system, with no calendar. Plan to Quilt is full of places to doodle, glue in swatches, and record the details of every quilt.
My collaborations with Moda, Aurifil, Pellon, Olfa, and The Warm Company support my love of sewing and encouraging others to do the same. I love to share my story, share quilts at trunk shows, and teach workshops around the country.
