The East Bay Modern Quilters are proud to present Stitch Modern 2016, our 5th annual quilt show at the Piedmont Center for the Arts. The East Bay Modern Quilters focus on modern design and personal expression through quilting. As a non-juried show, there are no hard rules – this is quilting our own way, whether it’s with the latest fabrics and traditional patterns, or free piecing with no pattern at all!
