The purpose of the State Quilt
Documentation and Regional Quilt History Bibliography is to organize published
works on state quilt documentation projects and regional quilt history.
Shelly Zegart's work "The Quilt Projects: 15
Years Later", provides a good background on state quilt documentation
projects. Works included in the bibliography should have a
local, state, or regional identification and may be topical in nature as long as
the geographic identification is specific and clearly presented in the work.
In general, juvenile works and pattern books are not included. Whenever possible, citations are constructed with item in hand and verified
using national bibliographic resources as appropriate. To facilitate
purchase and acquisition of materials, information on ordering and availability
is provided when available.
The bibliography is categorized
by publication type, each category organized by state and then by author or
editor. Author and title indices complement the bibliography.
