Explore the Foothills Quilt Trail
Quilting and farming are two important aspects of Kentucky culture. Pairing a barn with a quilt pattern, not only honors both, but recognizes the rural heritage that has been the fabric of America since colonial days. The Foothills Quilt Trail Committee strives to preserve quilt history as well as stimulate interest in the preservation of barns and their historical significance.
Quilting has emerged from craft status to a form of modern art. Through quilt projects, the goal is to encompass art appreciation, local history community pride and economic support.
