Thousands of images, stories and information about quilts and their makers have been saved by hundreds of public and private collections around the world, representing the work of thousands of community-based and independent scholars, digital humanists, and professionals in libraries, archives, and museums. The Quilt Index has made efforts to keep track of the projects and welcomes records from research and documentation projects, regardless of scope or size. No Maine projects have yet joined the Quilt Index. We have collected the following information about their efforts.
