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.
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:
I met Margaret Glendening through the East Bay Modern quilt guild, and am always enamored by the quilts that she brings in to show. Attention to detail, great color stories and fabric selection make her quilts stand out, along with how prolific she is. So pleased with the quilt she made using Pop Rox and some Andover Fabrics textured solids, with a back as handsome as the front!
And because I’m such a fan, I’m also going to show you some shots of more of her quilts and don’t forget to check out her Etsy shop, MGmade especially if you want a well made affordable baby or lap quilt as a gift for someone!
Ok, we’re almost 3/4 of the way through here…at least as far as the quilts go. There is more to share beyond the quilts themselves and we’ll see how much I can muster together for you this month.
For those just tuning in, these are quilts showing at Stitch Modern, the second annual exhibition of the East Bay Modern Quilt Guild at the Piedmont Center for the Arts. On through February 24th, Fri, Sat, Sun 12-3, plus during Stitch Modern Special Events…
Voila! More quilt gorgeousness…
