Current Exhibit

“Arts Quilts of the Midwest” on display through April 30, 2017. Also on display during this time: antique log cabin quilts and a bed turning display of quilts by Tony Jacobsen.

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.
