CHARLESTON, W.Va. - A quilt commemorating West Virginia's 150th anniversary was unveiled Monday by first lady Joanne Jaeger Tomblin.
The Division of Culture and History says more than 70 quilters from across the state worked on the West Virginia State Sesquicentennial Quilt. The unveiling was held at the Culture Center at the Capitol Complex.
The squares are made from Civil War-era fabric. Each of the 55 counties is represented by at least one square.
The quilt will be displayed at the Culture Center as part of the Division of Culture and History's WV150 exhibit. It will join the West Virginia State Museum's permanent collection after the exhibit ends at the end of the year.
