Quilts in Bloom...discontinued

Just like the seasons, Olbrich Botanical Gardens is always changing and evolving. Olbrich’s fall flower show, Quilts in Bloom, has been a fall tradition at the Gardens for many years, but it is time to reevaluate and refresh the fall event line up.

At this time a replacement fundraiser has not been finalized; a new fall event is anticipated for the future.

Olbrich would like to extend a special thank you to Rosemary Schmidt, and all of the ladies from the Thursday Quilting Friends, for the countless hours spent over the years coordinating the Quilts in Bloom show. We are so very grateful for all of your efforts!


Fall Fiber Art Exhibit

November 3, 2013 - January 26, 2014

Sundays, 11 a.m. - 5 p.m.

Marvel at the beautiful landscape quilts that from a distance could be mistaken for a painting. The show also exhibits traditional patchwork quilting in a variety of patterns and colors, as well as a variety of fiber art work. Many pieces are for sale; a portion of the proceeds benefits the Gardens.
