The 2010 All-America City quilt begins a 25-city tour Saturday, allowing each of the communities that participated in the annual civic recognition program an opportunity to display the finished patchwork, according to a news release.

Chandler's Tumbleweed Park, 745 E. Germann Road, will be the first stop on the tour, with Mayor Boyd Dunn unveiling the quilt at 8:30 a.m. during the city's free Day of Play celebration. The quilt will be displayed at Chandler's downtown library, 22 S. Delaware St., through Oct. 24.

The quilt will visit 19 states during the next year, making its final stop in Middleton, Wis., according to the release. All-America City finalists contributed 12-inch by 12-inch squares that were sewn together for the display. Carol Temple, a quilter at the Chandler Senior Center, designed Chandler's square.
