We are posting a running set of questions and answers here to share information across all project participants. 
I signed up for one training time and another training time would work better. Does it matter which training time I sign into?


  • How long will the training take? 1 1/2 hours
  • I have dial-up internet.  Can I participate in a training?   Yes, you can try.  This is a pilot to test training members of the public. We need to learn how well dial-up connections work with group trainings and if necessary we will modify our training methods.
  • I can't make the June dates.  How can I participate?We are scheduling a follow up  training in July.  We will also post training materials and will maintain a talkback page here to help people participate.
  • What are you doing with the survey results?We will be reviewing the survey responses and will post them here later in the summer.
  • Are quilt TOPS eligible? Yes. We are looking to be as inclusive as possible.
  • What happens to an entry returned with comments? What disqualifies a submission? We expect that the QI team will be working closely with individuals to enhance their entries. The only reasons an entry would be rejected are if the information is too sketchy, the entry has only one signature, the item is not a quilt or quilt top, or if the entry contains highly objectionable (for instance racist) inscriptions, at which time we would turn to the Quilt Index Editorial Board.
  • Can I enter more than one quilt? Yes. Please enter your first quilt and then let us know that you would like to add additional quilts. We will check the record for your first quilt and let you know when it is okay to add additional quilts.
  • Can I print a copy of my quilt record? Yes. Follow the instructions for searching for your record. After you have found your record, click on the identification number in reddish color to view your record. You can print this page.
  • Where can I add information about the quilting in my quilt? Information about quilting can go on the page for technical information, page 3, in the "Features" field.
