Beautiful Simplicity: Two Color Quilts

Opening at the Iowa Quilt Museum October 6th

Quilters love both fabric and color, often combining as many prints and hues as possible in a single quilt. This exhibit shows what happens when clever quiltmakers—past and present—limit themselves to just two colors, usually a strong primary such as red or blue teamed with white.
