Land’s End All American Quilt Collection

This collection is an archival collection from the American Folklife Center. The "All-American Quilt Contest" (1992-1996) was sponsored by Coming Home, a division of Lands' End, and Good Housekeeping

The materials presented from the Lands' End All-American Quilt Contest collection include images of approximately 180 winning quilts from across the United States. The collection represents a wide range of quiltmaking, from highly traditional to innovative, and the quilts pictured exhibit excellent design and technical skill in a variety of styles and materials.
