Australian National Quilt Register

29 12 2008

I happened upon the National Quilt Register site today: http://discover.collectionsaustralia.net/nqr/index.php. A small group of women is attempting to document the old (pre-1965) quilts of Australia, with assistance from the public.

If you have an old Australian quilt and know something of its history — perhaps it’s been in the family for a few generations and the story of the quilt has been passed down to you by your mother, aunts, or grandmother — you can add pictures and details of it to this register (http://discover.collectionsaustralia.net/nqr/addyours.php).

You can find out more about this collection and the intrepid women putting it together here: http://discover.collectionsaustralia.net/nqr/about.php.
