  • Title: The Quilt Index
    Descriptive info: The Quilt Index is a partnership project of The Alliance for American Quilts, MATRIX: The Center for Humane Arts, Letters and Social Sciences Online at Michigan State University and the Michigan State University Museum.. This resource represents years of planning, research and development to bring together quilt information in a centralized online tool for education, research, and public access.. These notes on the history of the Quilt Index come from the project and staff archives and the papers of Shelly Zegart.. Early History.. In the early 1990's The Quilt Index was born out of the "explosion in quilt scholarship over several decades which highlighted the need for an independent expanding bibliography".. Scholars, curators, folklorists, publishers, and gallery owners had all been "discovering" historic and contemporary quilts and were incorporating them into their work.. Late twentieth century arts documentation projects have their forebears in the 1930s Index of American Design, which included quilts.. Several small quilt-specific efforts emerged in the 1970s, such as a bicentennial attempt at mail-in documentation, the National Quilt Registry, and the North Carolina Regional Folklife project's quilt documentation in select areas of that state.. Then in 1982, The Kentucky Quilt Project, Inc.. , launched the first state-wide quilt documentation project, which organized a series of documentation days around the state and publicized its methods, thus developing the model upon which quilt documentation efforts were built.. Nearly a decade and much quilt scholarship and documentation later, the Kentucky Quilt Project, Inc planned and organized a series of exhibitions, lectures, gatherings and conferences as Louisville Celebrates the American Quilt.. Through this celebration, "[i]ssues of concern to all interested in quilts and quilt scholarship were addressed and goals, priorities and methods were set by some of the brightest lights in the field for the coming decades of quilt study and appreciation.. "(from the 1992 Overview of Need document).. In February 1992, Louisville Celebrates the American Quilt "Bibliography" Conference came together, in part to form the direction for an American Quilt Index.. Nearly 100 people gathered from across the quilt world to discuss in a multiple round table format, the potential media for publishing an extensive quilt "bibliography.. " Areas discussed were Movies and Photographs, Television and Video, Quilt Books, State Projects, Newspapers and Periodicals, Magazines, Computers, Patterns, Oral Material, Exhibitions, Museum Collections, Conservation, Regional Archives, and early records.. A full list of participants and a complete summary of the work of each group can be found in:.. Expanding Quilt Scholarship, The lectures, conferences, and other presentations of Louisville Celebrates the American Quilt.. A Kentucky Quilt Project Inc publication,1994, ISBN#:1-880584-04-2.. Following on this conference, project leaders Jonathan Holstein, Eleanor Bingham Miller , Eunice Ray and Shelly Zegart developed a proposal called:.. Overview of Need for Index.. (Spring 1992), which included the following summary statement:.. "The Quilt Index would gather in one computerized, bibliographic-style source, a non-critical index of quilt related materials in all communications: media, books, magazines, newspaper articles, movies and videotapes.. Because a good source for quilt related information was generated and continues to be generated by state and regional quilt documentation projects, information derived from those projects, the largest grass roots scholarly movement in the decorative arts, would also be available.. We envision adding exhibition histories, possibly pattern name research, in short, things which would be of interest both to scholars and to a general audience of quilt aficionados.. ".. This broad view of the potential for linking a broad range of materials in an inclusive and comprehensive way for both scholarly and public audiences remains at the heart of the Quilt Index effort.. Planning and Partnerships.. Spring 1992.. Meetings- The Kentucky Quilt Project (KQP) and American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress with Tim Lloyd.. KQP began actively developing a network of national leaders and seeking funding sources and promoting the need for an Index.. April 1993.. Pat Keller and Shelly Zegart write a paper titled "Preliminary Thoughts: Structuring a Mission Statement".. May 1993.. Shelly Zegart and Eunice Ray first meet in Houston with Karey Bresenhan and Nancy O'Bryant(Quilts, Inc.. ) to discuss formation of an organization dedicated to American quilts - The Alliance for American Quilts.. June 1993.. Founders expand the Overview of need for the American Quilt History center and the International Quilt Index including needs assessment, workplan and budget.. "The Alliance was founded for the purposes of establishing and funding the American Quilt History Center and the International Quilt Index" (p.. 8).. 1993 -1995.. Newly formed Alliance for American Quilts conducts planning, budgeting, networking, and administering surveys.. August 1995.. First advisory council meeting of The Alliance for American Quilts in Washington,  ...   Quilt Index Phase 3: National Leadership Collaboration and Expansion (funded by Institute of Museum and Library Services, 2004-2008).. This results in a partnership with museum collections plus documentation of the entire project process as a model for other object-based repositories.. More than 15,000 new quilts are added to the Index between 2004-2008.. Steve Cohen, project evaluator, begins participating in project planning and evaluation.. New contributors include:.. Museum of American Quilters' Society, Paducah, KY (250 quilt images).. Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum, Golden, CO (350 quilt images)..

Elizabeth Richards, University of Alberta; and Jan Wass, Illinois State Museum (emeriti curator).. Fall 2006..

These new tools and resources will substantially expand the capacity for research, teaching, and learning with the Quilt Index..
