Dating your quilt

Rated 3.88/5 based on 863 customer reviews

My passion for the mission of the AAQ comes from an understanding that objects, like the one in my humble collection, have an undisputed inherent value.

A documentation consists of two parts: a history of the quilt and its maker, and a physical examination of the quilt.

Alliance for American Quilts, has penned a how-to project and a call for the importance of labeling quilts (and artworks of all kinds) for the sake of staking a spot in handmade history and taking pride and authorship in your craft.

Do you have a quilt that holds a special spot in your heart or family history? I have been working as Executive Director of the Alliance for American Quilts (AAQ) for the past five years.

When a Documentation Day is planned, the local organizing group should make an appointment for each quilt (at least 30 minutes per item).

A Quilt History form (3 pages) should be provided in advance to the owner for each item being documented.
