Stitch Modern 2016: Part 2

Here is have the second half of the quilts from the 5th annual Stitch Modern show put on by the East Bay Modern Quilters. Though my photos leave something to be desired, The Piedmont Center for the Arts is a beautiful place to see the quilts in person.

Enjoy!

Luna Lounge Project Round-up

Today we’re doing a Luna Lounge project round-up and have tons of cool projects to show. Next up will be coverage of the Common Thread Exhibition at The San Jose Museum of Quilt and Textiles.

Many of these projects were also displayed at the Andover Fabrics booth at Quilt Market. We have projects from Patchwork Posse, Fat Chick Quilts, Claire Sherman, Lindsay Sews, and Anna Carloni, and patterns by Sew Sweetness, Noodlehead, MADE, Sew Scatterbrained, Green Bee Patterns, Abbey Lane, Two Little Banshees, Emmaline Bags and Pink Hippo Quilts.

It’s super fun sharing fabric and collaborating with such talented designers and sewists. Link to the pattern source by clicking on the photo–some are even free downloads or tutorials!

Stitch Modern 2015

Finally we get to the Stitch Modern 2015 exhibition, the 4th annual show of the East Bay Modern Quilters. A non-juried exhibition, members of the group all submit a quilt if they like and we end up getting at least 1 up on the wall from anyone who brings them.

I must also mention that we have awesome events that go with this show every year.  This year we had:
• A lively lecture from Joe Cunningham, titled “Biased and Edgy: My Career in Quilts
• A workshop with Kathryn Clark: ‘Modern Quilts with a Message: Designing Quilt Blocks for Today’s Stories.
• A Stitch Up event–An afternoon of sewing in memory of Deanna Davis
• The now annual Family and Community Activity Day, including quilting demos
• The best opening party yet!

Oh, and many many thanks to Joel Ignacio, of Joey’s Planting, for letting me use many of his photographs here. An amazing quilter, gardener, graphic designer, AND photographer, he takes the photos for our social media pages. (I had a major fail with half of my photographs the day I took them. Thank you for the rescue Joel!)

The exhibition takes place at the Piedmont Center for the Arts and plans are underfoot for next year so stay tuned for that. Let’s take a look at the wide variety and wonderful quilts in this year’s show:

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!

Amish: The Modern Muse

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!
