Directions:

  • The Alliance for American Quilts (AAQ) invites anyone to contribute ideas for this mass-curated online exhibition, in conjunction with the theme of their 2009 contest: Crazy for Quilts. Click on the discussion tab above for more details on the contest and a place to add your own comments.
  • Search the Quilt Index for crazy quilts, add them here, and brainstorm themes and narratives that connect the various quilts chosen by the group.
  • When adding a quilt to this space, please give the basic data record for the quilt (title, quilter, period and/or year, location made) and the quilt's unique id number (this number can be found in the url of the quilt's record). You may also add an image of the quilt. Please use only images from the Quilt Index.
