National Quilt Register

Sunday 3 February 2002

This is a note of appreciation for the National Quilt Register, a web-accessible database of historic quilts in Australia. Details and pictures of more than 1000 quilts from around the country are already available. Some are in museums, some privately kept but, as the blurb on the website says, the quilts stay where they are and the stories are shared.

It is a premise of the register that all quilts are equally significant, from the finely stitched decorative ones to the humble, functional ones made for warmth.
