Quilt Registry
One important purpose of the Kentucky Heritage Quilt Society is to support and expand the collection and preservation of Kentucky quilts and the records of Kentucky quilt makers and their work. This goal is being accomplished through the efforts of the KHQS program entitled "Host A Quilt Registry" and the cooperation of the University Libraries at Western Kentucky University. Registry participants have the opportunity to learn quilt history and view antique quilts.
The Kentucky Heritage Quilt Society and University Libraries at Western Kentucky University are in the process of mounting the KHQS Quilt Registry Database. Data from the surveys of quilts for the counties listed below is currently online. Results from surveys of additional counties will be added to this web site as time allows.
A duplicate set of records is housed in the Manuscripts division of the Department of Library Special Collections at Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green, Kentucky. For information about the paper records, call 270/745-6434.
