Resourceful Quilters have a long history of making artistic quilts utilizing the smallest scraps and efficient piecing methods—adhering to the philosophy of “waste not, want not.”

Located on the south side of the town square in historic Winterset, Iowa—birthplace of John Wayne, county seat of Madison County, home of the Bridges of Madison County—our unique space occupies a storefront that was for many years a JC Penney local branch. The museum offers changing exhibits—three to four per year—of American quilts both vintage and new.

The Iowa Quilt Museum welcomes quilters, quilt lovers, history buffs, and all appreciators of American art and culture.
