With over 200 quilt blocks, we have the highest concentration anywhere in the USA!
Nine contiguous counties host quilt blocks, with the highest concentration in Yancey, Mitchell and Haywood Counties.
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. Numerous 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.
The Quilt Trails of Western NC is a program of the Haywood County Arts Council.
