The provenance and images are now on file in Washington D.C. at the Textile Collection, Division of Home and Community Life, National Museum of American History, Smithsonian Institution. In 2008, the Smithsonian requested the donation of this quilt, recognizing that it would be “an excellent addition to the National Collections..." ; notwithstanding, the current owner wants the Buckingham Quilt to be treasured by someone who will continue the preservation of this important 17th century family heirloom and piece of colonial history.
