International Quilt Study Center & Museum

The world has many great textile traditions, and the art and practice of quilt-making is certainly one of them. The International Quilt Study Center (IQSC) was founded in 1997 at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with the kind assistance of Ardis and Robert James, who donated 900 quilts. Since then, the Center has grown to include research symposia, a graduate program in textile history, and numerous online resources. Visitors may want to search the quilt collection online through their helpful search engine. Users can search by primary pattern, quilt title, quilt maker, country of origin, and predominant technique. One very interesting feature of the site is the “Quilt of the Month” area, where visitors can learn about some of the Center’s most unique quilts, such as the Chicken Ribbons Quilt from 1913, which features blocks of blue, red, and white silver printed ribbons.
