Quilting in Historic Jonesborough

“Some stories seem to be made out of whole cloth. Others are like the Tennessee quilts on sale in Jonesborough’s many craft shops. They weave together past, present, fact, and fiction in a tight design both dazzling and unforgettable.” —Smithsonian

Follow the Quilt Trail through Historic Jonesborough, Tennessee. We invite you to take a trip back in time as you slow down and enjoy the scenic countryside and quilting
pride of our mountain region. The Appalachian Resource Conservation & Development Council’s Quilt Trail winds around Johnson City, Kingsport, and Bristol, and other regions of East Tennessee. For your pleasure, artistry of the traditional quilt on a backdrop of historic and beautiful barns can be seen on the tour.
