Iowa QuiltScape for April 27, 2020


Presenting: MAN MADE

Now on (virtual) display at the Iowa Quilt Museum

Curated by quilter and designer Tony Jacobson, this exhibit showcases quilts made by men, both contemporary and historical.

The idea of this exhibit is to show more than just wonderful quilts, but to explore the various reasons that draw men into quilting now and in the past. Quilts have been loaned for this exhibit by Ricky Tims, Scott Hansen, Jack Edson, Bill Kerr, Mike Ellingsen, and Erick Wolfmeyer among several others.

Until we’re able to re-open to the public, and welcome you here at the IQM, we’re working hard to bring the quilts to you! Last Wednesday, we gave a preview of the exhibit on Facebook Live. If you missed it, you can watch it below!

We plan to go LIVE on Facebook again this Wednesday.
If you don’t follow us yet on Facebook, check us out HERE.

Airing of the Quilts Update

We haven’t given up hope on the 2020 Airing of the Quilts. We’re working through ways that we can still provide a great event during the current pandemic.
Stay tuned for more updates soon!
