Alberta Quilt Project

January 29, 2016 – April 29, 2016

Do you have a heritage quilt with an Alberta connection? The Royal Alberta Museum invites you to help us discover and document Alberta's quilting history!

This is your opportunity to have your family quilt(s) documented and photographed (at no cost to you) in order to preserve its legacy and contribution to Alberta's quilting history. Documenting a quilt means that we look at the techniques and materials used to make the quilt. We also try to collect as much history as possible. If you don't know the age of your quilt, we will be able to give you an approximate date. Only pre-1970 quilts will be considered at this time unless a heritage quilt top was finished after 1970.


* Fully booked; no appointments available on Feb. 19
