There are a couple organizations that I like to look to for information about antique and older quilts. The Quilt Index is a wonderful place to spend hours. They have pictures of collections of quilts with descriptions and dates and who owns or made them. There is just a lot of information at the Quilt Index.
The Alliance for American Quilts is another great site. They have a contest right now called Home is Where the Heart Is as a fundraiser. There collections are linked with the Quilt Index.
Craftsy is a place for crafty people. They have information and links about many crafts including quilting. They are doing a BOM which is being called the largest BOM ever with over 40,000 people signed up! Craftsy Bom is here. I also found the embroidery and jewelry to be nice too. Have a nice evening.
