The Quilt Index

The Quilt Index uses the power of the Internet to make information about quilts available to people everywhere, providing unique, unprecedented access to unpublished documentation on American quilts and quilt making. This growing research and reference tool is designed to provide information and images about quilts held in private and public hands.

The Quilt Index, piloted with quilts inventoried by four state documentation projects, is now expanding to include museum and library quilt collections.

The Quilt Index is a joint project of Quilt Alliance and Michigan State University through research centers at MATRIX: Center for Humane Arts, Letters and Social Sciences Online and the Michigan State University Museum. The project has been supported in part by major grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Institute for Museum and Library Services.
