Quilt Documentation

 

It is important to document not only the quilts that you make but also family quilts and quilts you collect to preserve our quilt heritage.  A written record, complete with a photograph and provenance, will help those who come after us to know about our quilts.  Include the date and any history you can find out about the quilt when you purchase it. 

 

When you make a quilt, always sign your work.  It is just as important for a quiltmaker to sign the work as it is for an artist to sign a painting.  The most authentic way is to quilt your name, date, and location into the quilt.  In lieu of this, you should write your name, date, location, and name of the quilt and/or description on a fabric square and attach it to the back of your quilt.
