Debbie's Quilt Redesign is up
My final project- A redesign of the NMAH Quilts, Counterpanes and Throws uploaded. I ran out of time in replacing unPhotoshoped images and l still want to add those and pretty the links up plus there are 2 internal documents which Professor Kelly said weren't needed for the presentation but I will need to include for work. Anyway I'm good to go for tonight-everything works but later in the week if I can leave one day early, I'll pay another visit to my friends at the Star Lab get it a little fancier.

See you all later!

Debbie: No doubt I think this project is well worth it! I'm so thrilled you're actually going to be doing this for your work too. The Quilt Index looks like such a wonderful resource. The SI is definitely lucky you were willing to do their work for your class project. Its going to be awesome!

Thanks for the kind words and encouragement and thanks again for giving me your persepective as a quilter. I'll pass it on to the curator and her assistant, who I'm meeting with on Thursday. At the very least, we are on the way to getting more narrative and images up and we are looking into the scanning of the quilt construction documents in-house though there are a few technical hurdles to that aspect. I'm also really happy that what I've learned in class and through this project will not only produce tangible results but will be going toward facilitating virtual accessiblity of the national collections. Keep in touch and let me know if you ever want a quilt tour. Debbie
