The Cockrell Quilts showcase a spectrum of historical quilting styles and techniques, and were dated by the donor to represent the era from the Revolutionary to the Civil War. Susan Cockrell's goal was for them to be "seen and enjoyed."
Susan Cockrell gave most of the historic quilt collection to the Horner Museum in the mid-1950s, followed by two more in 1971, in memory of her mother Elizabeth Saville Lewis, a quilt enthusiast and avid collector.
