Indigo Gives America the Blues - online exhibition

A current exhibition at the International Quilt Study Center and Museum in Lincoln, Nebraska, Indigo Gives America the Blues, is also available in an online edition.

The exhibition combines information about the numerous chemical processes that have been developed over centuries to bring indigo dyes and cloth together successfully, with a timeline illustrated by a variety of quilts.  You can click on every image for a large, detailed view.
