To view quilts from the Ghormley collection go to Search the Collections, scroll down to the IQSC Collection field and select "Mary Campbell Ghormley Collection" from the drop-down box.
Collected over a forty-year period from all over the United States, the Ghormley collection is one of only a few such quilt collections in the world. Mary Ghormley is a founding member of the Lincoln Quilters Guild and was a leader in the Nebraska Quilt Project, which documented the rich quilting heritage of Nebraska and resulted in publication of the book Nebraska Quilts and Quiltmakers. Today, Mary Ghormley is a weekly volunteer at the International Quilt Study Center (IQSC) at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. In 2005, Mary Ghormley and her family agreed to add her doll quilts to the IQSC’s collection.
