Quilts represent a much-loved symbol of comfort, family, heritage, and community, and the blocks on the trail provide splashes of color along major roads and in the rural countryside. The Haywood County Quilt Trails (HCQT) project aims to engage the community by providing yet another reason to explore Haywood County and enjoy the surrounding beauty. Vibrant quilt patterns are painted on pre-built wooden squares ranging from two feet to eight feet in size. Cultural and heritage lovers inside and outside the county will experience the fun of locating blocks along the trails and learning the wonderful stories behind site locations and the quilt patterns represented on the blocks.
Please be careful and cautious when driving our Quilt Trail. The trail is located on public county roads and appropriate safety measures should be taken when stopping. Most sites are located on Private Property. Please view the sites from the Public Road except where indicated by invitation only.
We are indebted to our individual and business hosts and appreciate their generosity. Please respect their privacy.
Have a safe trip and please enjoy the ride and the view along the way!
