I just spent a delightful hour in the Quilt Index. Do you know about this site: The Quilt Index? It is a joint project of The Alliance for American Quilts, MATRIX: Center for Humane Arts, Letters and Social Sciences Online at Michigan State University and the Michigan State University Museum. O my, O my! What a wonderful website to wander around. Click on the link and go. I clicked on 'Browse' and then 'Time Period' and just had at it. There were 13 pages of pre-1799 quilts alone. Enjoy!
