  2. I'm lucky enough to live about 100 miles from Lincoln so I try and visit the IQSCM regularly. The exhibits blow me away every time! If I didn't live here, the museum would be on my bucket list--every year. I would encourage you to make plans for a visit. There are outstanding quilt shops in the area, too--not to mention reasonably priced antiques. You'll have a good time!
