Quilt Trails of the Tar River

LynchCreekFarmLynch Creek Farm now joins the Quilt Trails of the Tar River. Each Quilt Block pattern is chosen with care, so that it reflects the history of the place where it hangs. Our Block is mounter on our entranceway gate and replicates an 1880’s hand-made wool quilt (we own) in true historic colors and was painted by local artist, Margaret Hilpert.

The Quilt Trail was created by the Franklin County Arts Council (FCAC) to unite our communities along the Tar River, increase tourism to Franklin and neighboring counties, and generate interest in local history and culture.

The Quilt Blocks, ranging in size from 2′, 4′, and 8′ square, are painted with a single pattern, and attached to the sponsor building or structure. With hundreds of patterns to choose from within the rich heritage of quilting, each Block on the trail is unique to it’s location.
