Karen Miller, president of the Queens Quilters, says it was the biggest project they had ever undertaken.
The 25 blocks represent aspects from all corners of the county, from Kejimkujik National Park and National Historic Site to the Astor Theatre, and from our forestry industry to fishing.
A plaque explaining all the panels will hang next to the quilt.
It took the better part of a year to get all the panels made, and then arranged to create the best flow. However Miller said they are all proud of the work.
"You'll be more than pleased with the results," she said, just before the unveiling.
Finding the right place for the Quilt to hang proved to be a challenge. It needed to be in a place where it was visible to all, yet out of the sunlight to protect it from UV damage. Considering the building was designed to let in the maximum amount of light, there weren't many places it could hang. However a spot was found that would keep it protected and be very visible to the public.
The quilt will hang in the stairway leading up to the second floor of the arena area, in a protected glass case.
