Galleries feature groupings of quilts curated by Quilt Index staff, invited scholars, educators, and Michigan State University students. Each gallery explores a facet of quilt history, similar quilts, and thematic groupings and includes a brief description of the gallery’s overall theme (typically 200 words or less) and 3 – 15 quilt image records from the Index. The gallery format was initially developed as part of a grant from the Institute for Museum and Library Services.
