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:

Margaret Glendening and MGmade

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!
