History of the Appalachian Quilt Trail (AQT)
The Appalachian Quilt Trail began in Ohio in 2001 by a woman who wanted to honor her mother's heritage. It has spread to several states along the Appalachian Mountains and the Cumberland Plateau. We have 7 of these brightly colored barn quilts in Franklin County. Each one was chosen by the barn owner and painted by different artists. Spend an afternoon touring the beautiful countryside enjoying the amazing displays. You can even visit Grandaddy's Farm in the fall of the year to get an idea of what farm life is like and buy products raised there.
