The Michigan State University Museum/Great Lakes Quilt Center
is home to over 500 quilts of unusually rich ethnic and artistic
diversity. Recently the collection has been showcased in the
book, Great Lakes, Great Quilts (C&T Publishing, 2001). Included
in the publication were patterns to reproduce twelve quilts
based on quilts in the Museum's collection. Eleven of the
reproduction quilts created from these patterns are showcased
in this exhibit. These reproduction quilts represent a variety
of patterns produced from the nineteenth century to the 1980s,
highlighting the breadth of the collection.
