McDowell Quilt Trail

Where Main St. Meets the MountainsWhere Main St. Meets the MountainsThe McDowell County Quilt Trail Program is sponsored by the McDowell Arts Council Association. Their base of operations/studio is located in the Historic McDowell House. The trail program began in June 2009 as part of a grassroots interest to extend the Quilt Trail of Western North Carolina to McDowell County. As work to establish quilt blocks between Nebo and Old Fort continues, the Quilt Trail Committee is actively seeking support from local organizations, businesses, and citizens.

Quilt trail items such as lapel pins, car decals, maps, book marks, magnets, and tote bags are available in the MACA Gallery Gift Shop. To get a glimpse of just a few of the blocks, visit the Marion Shade Shelter, Old Fort Depot, MACA, or the Historic Carson House. A map showing the location of all the quilt blocks is available to purchase at MACA.

Visit for more information and photos, call 652-8610, or stop by MACA to pick up a host application and become part of the trail.
