We welcome new quilt trails across Arkansas and hope you will join Arkansas Quilt Trails! Read further to find out how.
Arkansas Quilt Trails was begun as a way of preserving local history while beautifying our communities for residents and visitors alike.
All quilt blocks should be painted on a wood or metal surface with good quality exterior paints. Patterns should be sent to the county coordinator who will get approval from the state committee. Once a county has twelve approved blocks installed, a signed owner agreement for each block, and a story submitted for each block, we will add the new trail to the Arkansas Quilt Trails website. We ask that block designs are sent to us for approval in advance of painting them as this helps prevent duplication of patterns. Of course, we will also review existing blocks and in most cases, will approve them for inclusion on the trail.
Stone, Searcy, Van Buren, Perry, Baxter, Washington, Logan, Pike, Izard, Independence, Jefferson, Franklin, Benton, Newton, Sharp, Crawford, Saline, Montgomery, Carroll, Pope, Little River counties now have official trails, while trails are being developed in another 20+ counties. See list below.
