The Quilt Museums and Collections

A very few museums started out with the avowed purpose of collecting quilts. They have either focused on folk art or textiles – and quilts are an obvious part of those fields – or the museums have started a quilt collection quite unintentionally with the donation of a private or family bequest. As the artistic and monetary value of quilts becomes more recognized, museums now actively seek quilts as an important part of their collections.
