A QUILT TRAIL is comprised of quilt block designs
painted on weather-resistant boards which are installed
at various locations along a designated route.
These trails, recognized as popular tourist destinations,
started in Ohio about 10 years ago and quickly spread
because of their colorful and nostalgic appeal.

O. P. Earle Elementary School art students recently painted two 4 x 4 foot quilt blocks which will hang on the Highway 14 side of the school. Volunteers from the Landrum Quilters and the school PTO worked with art teacher Emily Berry on the project made possible by a grant to the City of Landrum from the Mary F. Kessler Fund, Polk County Community Foundation. This shows the daily progress on the two blocks. The school also has released these photos of the Sept. 23-27 Quilt Block Residency Program.
