Quilts in Kentucky

Welcome to Quilts in Kentucky Research Guide which provides a wealth of resources on the art, design, culture, and history of quilts and quiltmaking in the Bluegrass State.  You will also find general resources on the art of quiltmaking and the quilters.

Quilts Matter! They tell stories and illuminate our history. They link generations and foster community. They are one of the most universally recognized American art forms.  Today 27 million Americans are involved in quiltmaking. Quilts matter! -- from the  Alliance for American Quilts.
