Worth the trip!

Lonnie and I were happy we got to squeeze in a trip to the Iowa Quilt Museum in Winterset this week, the last week of the Art Quilt exhibit.

It was fun to look at the interesting ways quilters express themselves with Art Quilts.
Not all quilts lay flat on a bed.

This was fun, titled "In Cold Blood". Standing next to it, it seems to be an abstract quilt in red and black on white. You have to step back a few steps to see the gun.

Another fun quilt. Each of the quilts seemed to feature a good deal of thread play.

Even more fun is this doggie quilt Deb S. made for the live animal shelter. She had no idea she was a modern quilter. We at Quilt Circle thought it was too pretty for a dog kennel but, - - - Deb really loves her dog.

As a really beautiful contrast, there was also a room of 1800s log cabin quilts on display.

If you have not been to the museum, it's worth the drive.
