The Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum Quilt Collection

The Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum maintains two distinct collections—the Permanent Collection and the Education Collection. The Permanent Collection contains our most significant pieces, which are given the highest quality of care and preservation. They are exhibited on a rotating basis, and are available for research purposes onsite. These quilts may occasionally be lent to another museum or similar institution.

Sometimes quilts are offered to the museum which, while not appropriate for our permanent collection, may be excellent examples of quilting techniques or represent specific periods in quiltmaking history. The museum may choose to acquire these pieces for the Education Collection. These pieces travel outside the museum and are used as educational tools where handling and close inspection are permitted.

Eugenia Mitchell created the foundation of RMQM’s permanent collection with the gift of 101 quilts in 1990. Since that time, our collection has grown to include more than 650 quilts and related items, which are housed under professionally accepted museum-standard conditions. The quilts range from historic and traditional bed quilts to contemporary art quilts.
