Quilts from the February 9, 2019 Public Documentation Day
Documenting quilts is one of the best way to learn about quilts and study quilt history!

The team documented several quilts, including a memory quilt made to honor a member's nephew who died two years ago. He was an avid sports fan which is reflected in the quilt. Memory quilts are an important part of quilt history.
The continuing education portion of the meeting was a study of feedsacks used in quilting. The topic was presented by Sue F. Click HERE to read and/or download her notes. The picture in the slide show of the doll in the cradle shows several feedsack quilt.

Quilt Study in Tucson is conducted by members of the Arizona Quilt Documentation Team. This team began in 2013 and meets monthly to study quilts. Each meeting consists of an education topic and a quilt documentation. A quilt may be brought by a member, or the team may go to a museum to document. To date, the team has documented quilts from the Arizona History Museum in Tucson and the Sanguinetti House Museum and Gardens in Yuma. Click HERE for information about Arizona museums.
Depending on meeting location availability (see above), the team meets on Monday or Tuesday of the first or second week of the month from 9:30 to 12:30. All those interested are welcome.
