We will be continuing our coverage of the quilts from QuiltCon 2015, but first I have to share with you about this year’s Stitch Modern show for those in the area:
The East Bay Modern Quilters are proud to present Stitch Modern 2015, our 4th annual quilt show at the Piedmont Center for the Arts. As a group, East Bay Modern focuses on modern design and personal expression through quilting. As a non-juried show, there are no hard rules – this is quilting our own way, whether it’s with the latest fabrics and traditional patterns, or free piecing with no pattern at all!
We hope you will join us! Click the links below to find out more about our exciting events.
