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.

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.

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:
Stitch Modern. Love that title. Its the second annual exhibition of the East Bay Modern Quilt Guild. Beautiful quilts!
In case you are in the San Francisco Bay area, it is absolutely worth checking out in person. Through February 24th at the Piedmont Center for the Arts. Gallery Hours: Friday, Saturday and Sunday 12-3. Plus of course its open during Stitch Modern Special Events.
Too many photos to sort through for one post so this will be divided into 4 entries over the next week, so stay tuned…
