Out of Control: Quilts that Break the Rules
On display through October 4th
Curated by Barbara Brackman & Deb Rowden
Barbara Brackman & Deb Rowden, two Kansas collectors with a special affinity for the “odd,” have compiled a unique collection of wild and wonderful vintage quilts to populate this exhibit. The patterns, color choices, designs, and even the workmanship will have us wondering, “What was she thinking?”
We feel pretty confident in saying that you’ve never seen a quilt exhibit quite like this before!
