The East Bay Modern Quilt Guild’s Stitch Modern 2013 quilt show last month was a great success. We had lectures, speakers, discussion panels, family activity day and even a sew day. I tried to help out at most of the activities and take photos, which you can see on my Flickr photoset called “Stitch Modern 2013 Quilt Show“.
The show is done, but theSan Francisco Quilters Guild asked if we would display our quilts as a special section of their quilt show QUILT San Francisco: Evolution of an Art Form, which runs Saturday and Sunday, March 9 and 10, 2013 at the Concourse Exhibition Center (635 8th Street, San Francisco). They graciously allotted a large space for us to put up our quilts, which we set up earlier today. Most of the quilts from our Stitch Modern 2013 travelled to San Francisco with some others joining the show.
Our guild East Bay Modern Quilt Guild is throwing an opening party tonight (Saturday, Feb 2, 2013, 6-9pm) for our Stitch Modern quilt show at the Piedmont Center of the Arts. Come by and see my Geos quilt and 28+ other wonderful quilts created by our talented members. We will serve up some snacks and drinks and admission is free. More information on the Facebook Event page or on my previous blog entry.
Earlier this afternoon, I drove down to the Piedmont Center for the Arts to help take down the EBMQG quilt show, Stitch Modern, and to pick up my quilt and bring it home. I took my PlantCam time lapse camera and set it up to take a photo every 30 seconds… I think I should have decreased the delay to take photos every 15 seconds.
The East Bay Modern Quilt Guild that I’m a member of is having its first quilt show called Stitch Modern. Come check out my quilt called “Habitat Arrows” which I just recently finished. You’ll also see other great handmade quilts from the EBMQG members and see how each quilter interprets “modern quilting” differently, wheather it’s with the latest fabrics and traditional patterns, or free piecing using no pattern.
