Biographical / Historical
The Nebraska Quilt Project began in 1987 under the leadership of Patricia Cox Crews and Ronald C. Naugle. The two worked together to register over 3,000 quiltmakers and almost 5,000 quilts made in Nebraska or brought to the state by homesteaders or pioneers before the 1920s. The findings of the project were published in Nebraska Quilts and Quiltmakers, (Lincoln: University of Nebraska Press, c1991).
