Jump to: navigation, search

Directions: Find one example of each type of quilt on the Quilt Index, and copy and paste its thumbnail image and its title and/or pattern name, maker (if known), date (if known), time period, location made, construction, and quilting techniques.

You may either complete this Scavenger Hunt on your own by downloading it as a PDF document: Media:QuiltIndexScavengerHunt.pdf OR you may work on the Scavenger Hunt collaboratively with others online by editing this wiki page. If you are unsure how to add images to the wiki, see the Getting started guide.

The first is done for you as an example. Good luck!
