Biography:

The Nebraska Quilt Project began in 1987 under the leadership of Patricia Cox Crews and Ronald C. Naugle. The two worked together to register over 3,000 quiltmakers and almost 5,000 quilts made in Nebraska or brought to the state by homesteaders or pioneers before the 1920s. The findings of the project were published in Nebraska Quilts and Quiltmakers, (Lincoln: University of Nebraska Press, c1991).

Scope and Content:

The records include questionnaires relating to quilts and quiltmakers along with photographs and slides taken of selected quilts during research activity completed between 1987-1989. The questionnaires include information such as name of quilter, date of quilt, and pattern or style used. Many of the questionnaires are associated with an image. Not all of the questionnaires are accompanied by a slide or photograph. The index cards contain information from the quilter about the related quilt. They are filed by last name. The slides are of selected quilts detailed in the associated questionnaires.
