How are 19th century quilts made in Chester County similar to or different from quilts made elsewhere or at different times in history? This illustrated slide lecture explores materials, construction and styles of Chester County quilts and their place in the history of quilted handiwork and describes a 2003 to 2004 county-wide quilt documentation initiative.

Presented by Ellen Endslow
