Iowa QuiltScape for July 3, 2020

Man Made is on Display through July 5th

We’re OPEN on Saturday, July 4th and Sunday, July 5th
And Kids Visit FREE!

Even though we had to delay the opening of our Man Made exhibit, COVID-19 couldn’t keep us down entirely! If you haven’t had a chance yet to see these quilts in person, we hope you’ll be able to make a trip to Winterset this weekend for a visit. If not, check out our “Current Exhibit’ page to view the online content that we’ve been creating to accompany this exhibit.


Closed Monday, July 6th for Exhibit Hanging


Out of Control: Quilts that Break the ‘Rules’

July 7 through October 4
Curated by Barbara Brackman & Deb Rowden

Wild quilts from the collections of Barbara Brackman & Deb Rowden, two Kansas collectors with a special affinity for the “odd,” will populate this exhibit. The patterns, color choices, designs, and even the workmanship will have us wondering, “What was she thinking?”

Here’s a small preview of some of the ‘rule breaking’ quilts that will be featured.
