Quilt Trail of Kentucky
The Foothills Quilt Trail Committee of Rowan County, KY, was formed in 2004 o produce 8’X8’ barn quilt squares with the hopes of creating a “quilt trail” for the county.
The goal was to display a variety of hand-painted quilt patterns while developing an appreciation for the art of quilting and encouraging the preservation of barns in Rowan County.
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.
I couldn’t get any good shots of the barns and quilts because there are no shoulders on the sides of the roads. So all of the shots were taken as “drive-bys.”
My step-son, Matt, and his wife, Lisa, bought property in the hills not far from Cave Run Lake. I vow to paint a quilt sign for their property!
Food: Not faring well with the sausage, biscuits & gravy, fried catfish, fried everything. Could only load one picture!
