Community Quilting is the term used when groups of people come together to create either a quilt or many quilts for a specific purpose. If you are interested in exploring information about quilt making history consider visiting the Quilt Index site, which links images from a vast array of quilt collections.
Cranford has several important Community Quilts on display at various locations. These works of art were developed under the direction of Ellen Hess, a local textile artist, who lead different teams of community quilters in developing the block designs and execution of the final quilt.
