N.B. Only those museums which are known to have collections of some significance (because of size or regional/cultural significance) have been included. Many UK museums and country houses will have textiles collections which include a small number of quilts. Even for those museums in this list, quilts rarely feature in the information on their websites or in their searchable databases.
