The Lewis County Quilt Trail project places colorful painted quilt squares on highly visible barns and other structures throughout the county in an effort to attract tourists and promote community involvement.
Local students are heavily involved. The high school’s advanced art classes sketch out and paint the patterns. The vocational school’s carpentry classes construct the frames.

Applications for squares are reviewed and approved by committee vote.
NOTE: Please keep in mind that these quilt squares are on private property and should be viewed and photographed from public roads. Many owners will be happy to allow a closer look with permission.
The Patriot Trail
The “Patriot Trail” follows Quicks Run Rd, northwest of Vanceburg, to Tollesboro. It is a loop in the barn quilt trail dedicated to all U.S. Veterans and troops. Every square on this loop is painted in red, white and blue to honor our defenders of freedom. Local VFW Post 5438 has sponsored the five barn quilts painted in the images of the flags of the United States Armed Forces and the POW/MIA flag.
