Kawandi Adventure: Quilts by Margaret Fabrizio

A visit to the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles with some of my quilter friends was a treat, as there were several exhibitions on (plus the company was superb).  Today we will cover one of the exhibitions, Kawandi Adventure: Quilts by Margaret Fabrizio.

Fabrizio was inspired by a 2011 exhibition of Kawandi at the Museum of African Diaspora in San Francisco. Kawandi is a hand sewing technique used by the Siddi women of Karnataka, India. She was intrigued enough to travel to India and spend two weeks with some Siddi women learning about their technique. They appeal to me because of my love for textiles, but as quilts, I love the improvisational aspect.

After this we will cover the A Common Thread exhibit, which I think was quite extraordinary and well curated. Though before that a little blogcation is in order…Hope you are enjoying your summer and enjoy the Kawandi Adventure!

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!
