Macon County Quilt Trail

Painted quilt blocks will be going up on buildings in Macon County, North Carolina, as part of the Quilt Trails of Western North Carolina program. The first block, a red, green and gold “Farmer’s Star” adorns the Franklin Area Chamber of Commerce building. By January a total of eight blocks will adorn county businesses and a “Quilt Trail guide will be published to lead block hunters from one destination to another in search of colorful and artful displays that each have a story to tell.” More information on Macon County’s Quilt Trail can be found here, and visiting the Quilt Trails of Western North Carolina website gives an overview of the quilt trails in nearby counties and details of special events.
