Swain County's Quilt Trail Showcases Our Mountain Heritage

Quilt Trails got their start in 2001 when an Ohio women painted a block on her family barn to honor her mother, a quilter. From that first block, the idea has grown to cover 30 states and more than 2,000 quilt blocks - featured not only on barns, but public buildings, shops, homes, and now – in Bryson City – on an island.

As you can see we are just getting started with our Quilt Trail here in the mountains, but we have big plans to showcase what is beautiful and unique about our corner of Western North Carolina. Please visit this page often to see our progress.
