Upstate Heritage Quilt Trail
It all began in Adams County, Ohio, in 2001 with Donna Sue Groves, a field representative with the Ohio Arts Council. She decorated her family barn with a quilt square pattern from one of her mother's quilts. By 2009, the Quilt Trail had grown to 24 states with more continuing to join.
Oconee County was the first county in South Carolina to embrace the Quilt Trail concept. They added their own special features to the concept by extending the Quilt Trail to homes, historic buildings and businesses that want to participate.
Each painted quilt panel is a copy of an existing quilt that usually has some historical connection with the sponsoring family or organization.
Oconee, Anderson and Pickens County are busy installing quilt blocks in their areas. The 100th block was unveiled in September 2012. These blocks on this Quilt Trail are a good way to preserve our heritage and promote the area. For more information and maps call 864.723.6603, email [email protected], or visit www.uhqt.org
