Visitors of the Day
February 20, 2020
This is Kristin Barrus and Jennifer Barclay from Utah. They were in Texas for QuiltCon, and Kristin is getting her Masters at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln! They are standing in front of “Wall of Sound” by Maria Shell in the SAQA “Layered and Stitched” exhibit.
Due to the coronavirus outbreak affecting everyone’s schedule,
we are accepting submissions for the Flying High: For the Love of Birds competition through April 5.

The Museum may be closed….but our “Virtual Gallery” is OPEN!
Due to the worldwide health crisis, the Texas Quilt Museum is closed until further notice. However, we wanted to give all of you (many stuck at home!) the chance to still be able to see the beautiful quilts we have on display, and also pay tribute to the wonderful artists who made them!
Click HERE to check out “Texas Grandmasters: Timeless Quilts.” It’s our special exhibit celebrating the work of artists age 75 and up!
Like all of you, we at the Texas Quilt Museum are closely monitoring and concerned by the nearly hourly news updates and changes to daily life due to the worldwide coronavirus pandemic. The health and safety of our visitors and employees is of utmost importance to us, and we also want to be sure to do our part to help stop the spread of the disease.
Thus, we have made the decision that after 4 pm on this Sunday, March 22, the Texas Quilt Museum will be closed for the foreseeable future until this virus once again allows normal activity.
We will remain open this weekend for those of you who have a strong desire to see our brand new exhibits. To help protect visitors, we are keeping areas of contact (such as door knobs) clean. We have also placed hand sanitizers at the reception desk, store, and both restrooms.
For everyone else, we are working to offer a “Virtual Tour” of the three current exhibits, with photos and information on all the quilts from Texas Grandmasters: Timeless Quilts, My Mexico by Quilters de México, and Fun With Fractals and Other Mathematical Quilts on our website. You can also read more about the exhibits there, and follow our social media on Facebook and Twitter (@texasquiltmuseum).
In the meantime, please follow the Centers for Disease Control's advice HERE.
Above all, we hope that you and your families stay safe and healthy, and we will all get through this. If you’re also a quilter, look at it this way—use this time to make more quilts!
We hope to see you soon!
