WNC Quilt Trails featured in Wall Street Journal

The Quilt Trails of WNC, which runs through both Yancey and Mitchell Counties, was featured in the Wall Street Journal this weekend. The Quilt Trails program features handpainted quilt blocks displayed on buildings, homes, barns and other structures throughout the two counties. Many of the quilt blocks are directly tied to personal stories of the families, businesses and/or history of the structure they are placed on.

The Quilt Trails program has just released their Tour Guides and Maps which are being offered in the Quilt Trails Gift Shop at the Yancey County Chamber of Commerce in Burnsville.
Maps include all of Mitchell and Yancey Counties, with an overall map and individual maps for individual Trails. [Click here for online maps]
Guides are available for Arbuckle, Bakersville/Roan Mountain, Bee Log, Burnsville, Celo & Parkway, Green Mountain & Relief, Lickskillet to Westside, Pensacola, and Spruce Pine.
