Quilt Alliance brings together the creative, scholarly, and business worlds of quiltmaking to celebrate and preserve our shared quilt heritage and inspire today’s quilters.
Document Your Quilt
Go Tell It!
30th Anniversary Block of the Month
This year is the 30th anniversary of the founding of the Quilt Alliance, and one of the ways we’re celebrating is our very first Block of the Month project. We have nine amazing blocks from nine incredible designers to share.
Each of their blocks is inspired by some aspect of their quilt story, and we’ll provide guidance and tips as you work through the blocks for documenting and reflecting on YOUR quilt story!
The first Block of the Month block was released on April 15, but you can join in any time. Anyone who is a Quilt Alliance member at any level, or has made a donation of $30 or more in 2023 will receive all nine blocks.
About Our Work
Quilt Alliance is a nonprofit 501c3 organization established in 1993 with a mission to document, preserve, and share our American quilt heritage by collecting the rich stories that historic and contemporary quilts, and their makers, tell about our nation’s diverse peoples and their communities.
The Quilt Alliance has documented the stories of more than 2,000 quiltmakers over the past three decades with the support of our donors.
Every dollar helps us capture another meaningful quilt and another member of our community.
Our members make our work possible. Bring your story to the circle by joining our alliance of quiltmakers and quilt lovers.
Your support helps sustain our projects and help us preserve the stories of quilts and quiltmakers.
