The collection houses the largest publicly held quilt collection in the world. also their holdings are not limited to just American quilts as there are over 3500 quilts that range from from the early 1700s to the present and more than 25 countries are represented.
The online data base is easy to use and if type in a key word of crazy quilt there are enough returns to keep you browsing over your lunch hour.
My aim with Pintangle is to help enable you to express yourself in fabric and thread. I focus on hand embroidery and crazy quilting with a modern twist. Here you will find tutorials, free patterns, stitch instructions, techniques and tips and of course stitchers eye candy galore.
At the moment I am currently working on a book on Crazy quilting.
