Quilts by Topic and Artists

Over 500 women and children in 15 countries have expressed themselves through embroidered squares and all are profiled in these pages. Visit Vision and History to learn how advocacy quilting began. Click on an image below to bring up profiles of each quilt and the artists who produced the embroidery. Meet the American quilters who assembled the quilts. See how we exhibit the quilts in the US.
