South Carolina Quilt Trail

When you're ready to go on a road trip, consider letting the rubber meet the road on one of the Palmetto State's quilt trails. The South Carolina Quilt Trails began in Oconee County and has spread throughout the state. Today, more 180 quilt patterns come alive as outdoor art on painted panels, preserving our rich heritage of quilting. These clotheslines of quilts are found in small towns and rural areas mounted on barns, businesses, homes and public buildings. Ready for the adventure? Visit each trail's website to learn where you can find these quilt blocks in the state. Get on the roads less traveled and discover quilt trails in the Upstate and Foothills or drive through McCormick and Ridge Springs and York County. Every quilt tells a story and every story leads to discovery.
