Abstract or Summary
  • This thesis is a documentation of a selected number of nineteenth century quilts studied by the investigator in the Willamette Valley. The quilts were located in museums and in individual's homes. A questionnaire, that was developed for this study of quilts, was filled out as each quilt was examined. Slides were taken of all 100 quilts studied, although only 25 were selected to be documented. The quilts were studied as to place of origin, date the quilt was made, the quilt pattern, the color combinations, the fibers and fabrics used, the quilting designs, the size, the present condition, and the historical significance of the quilt. The Willamette Valley was important in Oregon history. The quilts bring out a more personal aspect of this history rather than the factual side that is read about in history books. A quilt was a means of expression for a woman. She was limited by the type and color of fabric available but she was able to make her desire for beauty come true. The pioneer woman let her imagination be her guide in designing her quilt pattern and naming it.
