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.

Threads of Life: Portraits and Pets Woven in Fabric

June 18, 2024 – September 15, 2024 – Curated by Diane Murtha

Artists create images of things they love and see in everyday life. There is nothing more endearing than capturing the look of a child fascinated by something, the quirky antics of our pets, a tender touch of love, or a somber sincere look of determination. The IQM is honored to bring you fiber artists who have woven threads of life into phenomenal pieces sure to astound you.
Thirty-seven fiber artists from across the country, including internationally known, award-winning artists as well as local creatives unite to bring you 51 fiber art pieces.
The exhibit includes fiber, embroidery work, wearable art, as well as several unique pieces created specifically by the artists just for this exhibit. There are pieces sure to touch your soul and others to make you giggle. Some will inspire you to take your own art to a new level and others will encourage beginners to take the first step. Truly something in this exhibit for everyone (in the family).

Paper Work

September 17, 2024 – January 5, 2025 – Curated by Linzee McCray

English Paper Piecing and Foundation Paper Piecing (sometimes known by their acronyms EPP and FPP) rely on underlying paper to shape and stabilize fabric. But the two techniques are quite different in method and in the quilts they produce. Paper Work explores both vintage and contemporary examples of EPP and FPP and includes intricately pieced quilts whose sharp angles and distinctive shapes are made possible by paper.
