Visiting Quilt City USA, home of the American Quilters Society

  • The Certified Appraiser will measure the quilt and determine the state of the material (cloth) for fading and deterioration. The quality of the material is noted, as well as the workmanship and the design features. Unique designs are recorded and the quilt as a whole is carefully examined which means the top, back, binding and filler material. All contribute to the quilts value.
