About the Collection

While the United in Memory 9/11 Victims Memorial Quilt toured the United States, co-founder Corey Gammel sought a permanent home for the quilt. With the generosity of the Robert and Ardis James Foundation, the International Quilt Study Center & Museum acquired the quilt and will care for it and continue to make it available for public display.

Since arriving at Quilt House, thousands of volunteer and staff hours have been devoted to cleaning, accessioning, photographing and housing the panels within the Museum’s collections.
