Just a few days remain to catch the Out of Control exhibit curated by Barbara Brackman and Deb Rowden! Don’t miss your chance to view this one-of-a-kind exhibit in person—make plans to visit the Iowa Quilt Museum before Sunday!

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.
