Center Grove Quilt Trail Barn by TheMan268 Center Grove Quilt Trail Barn by TheMan268
A Quilt Trail Barn near the Center Grove area in Jackson County Tennessee U.S.A. A Quilt Trail is a series of painted quilt squares installed at various locations along a route, usually on barns, emphasizing significant architecture and/or aesthetic landscapes. Currently North America has quilt trails in 27 of the United States as well as in several Canadian provinces, such a British Columbia. The first official quilt trail was begun in 2001 in Adams County, Ohio. Donna Sue Groves wanted to honor her mother, Maxine, a noted quilter, with a painted quilt square on the family's barn in Manchester, Ohio. Though many believe that the Groves farm is home to the first barn quilt, that is not the case. The first barn quilt was an Ohio Star which was unveiled as part of a community celebration at a nearby herb farm. The Groves farm later became part of a trail of 20 barn quilts that formed a driving trail throughout Adams County. Although an emerging concept, a national quilt trail has rapidly spread across Ohio to Iowa, Kentucky, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Maryland, Michigan, New York, Wisconsin, Indiana, Illinois, Texas, Minnesota, Nebraska, Colorado, South Dakota, Georgia and Pennsylvania. British Columbia has developed a trail.
