Crusading Quilts: Social Reform and the Woman's Christian Temperance Union (WCTU) is an online exhibition about quilts related to the WCTU. This paper is the research behind the exhibition. The goal was to identify quilts connected to the WCTU and identify how they fit into the larger quilting for a cause phenomenon. Ultimately WCTU quilts represented a way for women to communicate their ideas as well as a way to create a community.
