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. Our mission is to promote appreciation of the American quilt and the art of quilting through displays of quilts and information about quilt history.
Beautiful quilts, gave us something to do for about an hour
Tiny place, $6 to get in ($5 if you tell them you visited the John Wayne museum, and it’s a dollar off the John Wayne museum if you tell them you visited the quilt museum). The attention to detail in the quilts was flawless. I don’t know much about quilting but you don’t need to be an expert to appreciate beautiful handiwork.
