With over 200 quilt blocks in the region, you can drive for days and not see them all! The WNC Quilt Trail is the largest concentration of quilt blocks anywhere in the US!
The Quilt Trails project got its start in Ohio when Donna Sue Groves put a block on her barn to honor her mother. From that simple act, the project has spread to 30 states and Canada.
Eight different driving trails take you to view vividly painted quilt squares installed on barns and buildings of participating communities. Even if it is raining you can still enjoy a day of adventure finding the quilt blocks.
Each quilt block tells a story of the family, business or structure that it is displayed on. Read the background of each block when you pick up a Quilt Trails Map or download the maps here.
