Michigan Quilt Project Showcase quilt

The MSU Museum always has on view one quilt which is displayed in a special showcase on the first floor of the museum's exhibit facility. Selections of quilts, changed approximately every three-four months, are from the museum's collections or are ones, on loan, that have been documented through the Michigan Quilt Project.
