The researchers at the MSU Museum are looking to add quilts to the Quilts and Health (http://www.quiltindex.org/contributor.php?kid=6B-100-0) section of the Quilt Index. If you have a quilt you’d like to add to this project, you can find the forms at the links below. The form has two options, one is to print (if you prefer documenting with paper and pencil). The other form is for folks who like to use their computer to document (-to fill). Remember to send nice pictures of your creations when you send the form.
