The Randolph County Quilt Trail showcases the heritage of farm families in rural Randolph County.
Twenty-nine farms have installed quilt squares on their barns. Several of the barns on the trail are over one hundred years old. Each quilt square is different, and many have a special meaning, representing family history or tradition. Visitors are encouraged to stop and take photographs from the roadside. Several farms may also offer seasonal produce or other goods for sale. The Quilt Trail is a self-guided tour. While touring the Quilt Trail, please be considerate of private property.
The Randolph County Quilt Trail began in 2010 as a project of the Piedmont Conservation Council, with grant funding from the Natural Resource Conservation Service. The Randolph County Soil and Water Conservation District received and approved applications, and members of the Randolph County Quilters Guild volunteered their time to paint and hang the quilt squares.
The Randolph County Quilters Guild received the 2011 Supporting Organization of the Year Award from the North Carolina Resource Conservation and Development Association for their support in establishing the Randolph Quilt Trail Project.
