The Utah quilt heritage records (1988-1994) contain Polaroid photographs of and questionnaires regarding quilts dating from the 1880s to the 1950s. The Utah Quilt Guild was organized in 1977 to promote preservation of the art of quilt making. In order to preserve the history of quilts in Utah, the guild held a series of "documentation days," where volunteers throughout the state photographed and documented quilts. Some of the information gathered has been published in Gathered in Time: Utah Quilts and Their Makers, Settlement to 1950 (University of Utah Press, 1997). The collection is arranged alphabetically according to designations made by the guild; original order has been maintained.
