As an exhibit-only quilt museum, we install new exhibits four times a year. Here are our upcoming exhibits and be sure to check back as we continue to plan for the future.

Fiber Art Now – Excellence in Quilts

September 27 – to December 18, 2022

Be the first to see the winners of Fiber Art Now’s 2022 Excellence in Quilts. Nancy Bavor as the juror for the 2022 Excellence In Quilts will choose approximately 30 quilts from hundreds of entries. Bavor is a quilt appraiser, curator, and lecturer, and most recently the director emerita of San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles. The chosen quilts are of original design that show inventiveness and mastery of techniques.

The Iowa Quilt Museum was chosen to hang the winners of the call in our gallery from September 27 – to December 18, 2022.

These ARE Your Grandmother’s Quilts

December 20, 2022 – March 12, 2023

Grandmother’s quilts are a lifetime of hugs wrapped in thread and fabric. Help us celebrate Grandmothers during our Winter exhibit. We asked for submissions of quilts made by Iowa Grandmothers and you didn’t disappoint.

This exhibit will showcase a range of 30 or more vintage to more modern quilts and tell the stories of the Grandmothers in our lives.
