Unionville Tricentennial Quilt Now Hangs in District Office

The Unionville Tricentennial Community Quilt finally has a home! 

The quilt was created in 1982 to mark Chester County's 300th birthday, but since then it has been largely out of sight.

On Monday, June 19, 35 years to the day after it was unveiled to the public, the quilt received an official welcome at its new home: the lobby of the Unionville-Chadds Ford School District Office.
Three of the original quilters -- Bette McConnell, Jill Benjamin and Ella Sestrich (the former owner of Sestrich's General Store) -- were on hand, and Jill gave a presentation about the quilt's history.
