The 7th Annual Garden Quilt Show returns, bigger and better than ever!
Reiman Gardens and the Iowa Quilters Guild will be hosting the annual Garden Quilt Show. The three-day show will encourage the art of quilting through beautiful displays of garden-themed quilts created by talented Midwesterners as part of a juried show with prizes awarded by central Iowa sponsors. Guests will be inspired by the quilts as well as the living beauty through the Gardens, in the Hughes Conservatory, and within the Christina Reiman Butterfly Wing.
Instruction, demonstrations and lectures for both novice and experienced quilters will be scheduled throughout the three day event. On Sunday, there will be a vendor’s marketplace offering a variety of fiber and fabric art. Also on Sunday at 1:30 in the Speer Room there will be Quilts of Valor presented to veterans.
