Welcome to the McDowell County Quilt Trail!
The Committee of the McDowell County Quilt Trail. The McDowell County Quilt Trail Program is sponsored by the McDowell Arts Council Association.  

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.  

The purpose of McDowell County Quilt Trail is to promote tourism; preserve history and help improve the economy in McDowell County.  We are a program of the McDowell Arts Council Association (MACA).  We see our blocks as community art that are connected by name or design to the history of the land, building or family that is hosting the block while bringing life to our buildings.
