This 25 block quilt measuring 96 inches by 96 inches was created to commemorate the City of Worthington's Bicentennial. Planning for the quilt began as a 2002 class project of Leadership Worthington. A group of women known as the Worthington Bicentennial Legacy Quilt Committee created the quilt, spending over 261 cumulative hours stitching it together. One of the quilt blocks was created by the Sayama International Quilt Group, from Worthington's sister city, Sayama, Japan. Signatures of over 800 members of the community were gathered at Founders Day 2002 and incorporated into the quilt along with signatures of elected city and state officials. The quilt was presented to the city of Worthington in November 2003 and was designated as the official Worthington Bicentennial Legacy Quilt. Each block of the quilt represents a unique aspect of the community and was made by a member of the committee.
