January-May 2017, Art Quilts of the Midwest; Iowa Quilt Museum, Winterset, Iowa







Marianne Fons (co-founder), Linzee Kull-McCray (author) and Megan Barrett (Museum Director) at the Iowa Quilt Museum opening for Art Quilts of the Midwest, January 28, 2017


A collection of quilts featured in Linzee Kull-McCray's book Art Quilts of the Midwest will be exhibited at Iowa's new and only museum dedicated exclusively to quilts, the Iowa Quilt Museum in Winterset - Iowa's quilt epicenter of sorts, thanks to Fons & Porter.  I'm pleased to be exhibiting there within it's inaugural year of opening.  Quilts and quilting are such a fundamental part of Iowa heritage.  My quilt Portmanteau will be on display as part of this exhibit.  It was one of two of my quilts featured in McCray's book and is currently in the collection of the Iowa State Historical Museum in Des Moines.
