What are your favorite colors? If you could design a quilt, what colors would you choose? Bright? Subdued? On-trend? Natural? Quiltmakers throughout Nebraska’s history made their own choices. But fashion and personal preference weren’t the only factors. Cost and technology limited some quilters’ choices. The durability of dyes also played a part in color selection. Find your favorites as you explore the beauty, fashion, and history of color in Nebraska quilts. Start your color quest at the Nebraska History Museum
