SCOPE AND CONTENT NOTE



This collection consists of copies of records relating to research conducted by the Nebraska Quilt Project, comprised of members of the Lincoln Quilters Guild, between 1987 and 1989.  The project documented the history of quilts and quilt-making in Nebraska.  Participants completed questionnaires with information about the quilt owner, quilt maker and history of the quilt, and photographs were taken of each quilt.  Included in the collection are questionnaire forms and slides for each quilt, as well as transcripts of taped interviews with participants.  Boxes 10 and 11 are restricted due to confidential ownership information.



Note:  The original Nebraska Quilt Project records are held by the University of Nebraska – Lincoln, Archives & Special Collections.  Information from these records has been digitized and made available through The Quilt Index.
