The Iowa Quilt Museum opened its doors this year on May 21. The museum is on the south side of the town square in an historic building that began as a hardware store in 1886. In the early 1900s the building was home to a dry goods store. In 1997 the structure was occupied by an appliance store and later a gift shop and then a photo studio. Marianne Fons, board member of the museum and co-host of the popular public television show “Fons and Porter’s Love of Quilting,” said although they’ve managed to keep the historic look of the building, they have made some improvements. “It’s a beautiful building that had been gutted and rehabbed years ago for retail space,” said Fons. One unique feature that was added to the building is moveable walls. Fons said the walls can be rearranged to accommodate the quilts on display. “The walls were made by a local cabinet maker and we can change the way our exhibit space is laid out. We can change things to fit whatever exhibit we may have. ” Fons said they plan on changing the displays of quilts three times a year. For quilters the names of Fons and Porter are linked with everything quilting. Over the years they’ve written books and provided instruction on the art of quilting with seminars and their weekly quilting program on TV nationwide. The show has been on the air since 2003 and was originally hosted by Marianne Fons and Liz Porter. Marianne’s daughter Mary began co-hosting with her mother after Porter went into semi-retirement. Fons and Porter first got together while in their twenties. “We took a beginning quilting class,” remembered Fons. We were young mothers looking for a way to make money for diapers and milk. One thing leads to another and you’re on public TV for 20 years. ” Both Fons and Porter are now semi-retired. “My daughter Mary is now hosting many of the episodes. Fons said the art of quilting goes back many years. “Quilted clothing and bedcovers go back many centuries in many countries in the world, but patchwork, appliqué, and quilting came together in a unique way in pre-Revolutionary and early America, pursued, at first, by wealthy women who could afford... Megan Barrett, director of the museum, said the current exhibit is called Three Centuries of Red and White Quilts. “We have 30 quilts representing three centuries from 1849 to 2016,” said Barrett. “Twenty-four quilts are hanging on our walls and six are displayed on an antique walnut four poster bed on loan from the Madison County Historical Museum. All of the quilts are red and white, a very popular genre in the quilt world. If you go WHAT: Iowa Quilt Museum. HOURS: Open year round from 10 a. m. to 5 p. m.

Patchwork quilts are hugely evocative emblems of our domestic past. With no two quite the same, each example hints both at the story of the particular household in which it was produced and at a larger piece of social history. But quilting is by no means only historical, with the craft seeing a huge revival in popularity in recent years, and items that were once made for purely utilitarian and practical reasons are now produced and appreciated for the connection they afford us to a rich vein of heritage and nostalgia. Illustrated with a stunning range of examples from the Quilters' Guild Collection ? of which the author is curator ? this book is a wonderful introduction to a hugely important aspect of British domestic history.
