Here we have the quilts from Stitch Modern 2017, an exhibition put on annually by the members of East Bay Modern Quilters at the Piedmont Center for the Arts.
Finally we have the coverage of the 5th annual Stitch Modern exhibit at the Piedmont Center of the Arts. An uncurated group show by members of the East Bay Modern Quilters, the 4 week long exhibition also had a number of events and special guest speakers and teachers we will be spotlighting after we get through all the quilts. Here is the first batch.
Amish: The Modern Muse at The San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles runs in two parts. The first part goes through January 10th, then the second part through March 1st 2015.
The museum asked local modern quilt guilds to submit quilts inspired by Amish quilts but with a modern take. The East Bay Modern Quilters, the Bay Area Modern Quilt Guild and the South Bay Modern Quilt Guild gladly participated, and after being curated by San Francisco artist Joe Cunningham, it was decided to run the show in two groups. Good news, as there will be more marvelous quilts to post in January!
Alas this is my last post of the year, but the Plaid Portico will be back mid January with coverage of the second round of Amish: The Modern Muse, coverage of some up and coming designers doing cool things,and then some pretty comprehensive coverage of QuiltCon.
Happy New Year in advance!
Sneak Preview of my new collection with Andover Fabric Inc. Its called Pop Rox and comes a light and soft bright “sugar” color way and a rich “choco” color way. It should be hitting stores later in March. Lots of cool projects in the works….
The sugar colorway is paired with Andover textured solids “toxic” and “mandarin.
Its a dream to pair with solids, and these are some of my favorite Andover textured solids, “mandarin”, “peony”, “hyacinth”, “ripple” (a great retro modern blue) and “envy”.
The “choco” color way is rich and chocolaty. It is versatile and can be read as either sophisticated or masculine and is paired with Andover textured solid “tapioca” and “sandstone”.
Looks great also with a pop of color, like Andover ‘s textured solid “Indian Summer” shown here, or others like “Zinfindel” or “Lagoon” or “amethyst”.
