Amish: The Modern Muse Part II

So excited to see the second installment of the Amish: The Modern Muse at the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles.  It did not disappoint!  It struck me as quite dramatic as I entered the gallery room. The exhibition goes until March 1st so if you are in the area, head down there! There is nothing like seeing quilts in person, plus the larger exhibition of Antique Ohio Amish Quilts from the Darwin D. Bearley Collection is NOT to be missed.

The show was curated by San Francisco Artist Joe Cunningham, and includes quilts submitted by East Bay Modern Quilters, the Bay Area Modern Quilt Guild and the South Bay Area Modern Quilt Guild.

Enjoy!

  2. Lovely to see a modern interpretation of Amish quilts, thank you for the phots as I live in Australia it would be imposible to visit the quilt show in person.

  3. Thanks for the show! A few weeks ago, my sister and I decided to visit the SJQM but I hadn’t checked the website before we went. As it turned out, they were closed due to a water leak. Unfortunately I only go to SJ on Wednesdays and since there are only tow left in the month it’s unlikely we’ll get to see the show with other things planned.
