Dear Art Educators,

This site was featured in Scout Report this week.

International Quilt Study Center
http://www.quiltstudy.org/

....The International Quilt Study Center (IQSC) was founded in 1997 at
the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with the kind assistance of Ardis
and Robert James, who donated 900 quilts. Since then, the Center has
grown to include research symposia, a graduate program in textile
history, and numerous online resources. Visitors may want to search
the quilt collection online through their helpful search engine. Users
can search by primary pattern, quilt title, quilt maker, country of
origin, and predominant technique. One very interesting feature of the site
is the "Quilt of the Month" area, where visitors can learn about some of the
Center's most unique quilts, such as the Chicken Ribbons Quilt from 1913,
which features blocks of blue, red, and white silver printed ribbons. [KMG]
