AQSG publishes an annual journal of the papers presented at our Seminar. Each issue of Uncoverings premiers essays that represent the most recent advances in quilt and related research. Featured papers have covered areas such as cultural roles associated with quilting and quilters, period analysis of quilting, and studies on quilt media. Each softbound volume includes both color and black and white illustrations. All members receive a copy of Uncoverings as a member benefit. Members at the Associate level and above receive two copies of Uncoverings each year.

For more information about submitting your work to Uncoverings please refer to the Manuscript Guidelines. Criteria for paper selection may be found in the Reviewer Guidelines.
