Explore 1068 Quilts On-Line @ Quilt Study Centre, University of Nebraska-Lincoln

With 1068 quilts from 16 countries for you to explore on-line, I suggest you get the urn fired up for some serious tea-drinking!

It obviously makes sense to have collections on-line - how on earth can you keep getting quilts in and out of storage for all the many people who would like to see them? While there are still going to scholars who need to research up close, there are hundreds more who are delighted by being able to see good quality images.

It is only by seeing that we can be inspired, by emulating that we can develop our skills, and by recognising the makers of these wonderful items were people just like us that we can pluck courage in both hands to launch out into our own projects. Now, is that tea made? Then simply click here to visit this superb collection.
