  • Scenic Barn Quilt Driving Tour

    Explore the beauty of Taylor County while admiring the work of our local artisans on the Scenic Barn Quilt Driving Tour!

    There is a quality about quilts that evokes a feeling of comfort of home and family. Quilting is a tradition that thrives in Kentucky.  The Quilt Trail project began in Adams County, Ohio, when Donna Sue Groves, decided that she wanted a quilt square painted on her barn to honor her mother, a life long quilter. Donna Sue shared her idea with friends in the community, who offered their help. They decided that if they were going to paint one quilt square on a barn, they might as well paint twenty and create a driving tour to attract tourists to their rural community. The project was such a success that word of it traveled quickly, and soon other communities were contacting Donna Sue asking if they could join in the project. Donna Sue offered her enthusiastic support. The Quilt Trail project has taken deep root in Kentucky and spread quickly. The first square in Kentucky was painted and hung in Carter County by local volunteers with support from the Gateway Resource Conservation and Development Council. The project has spread as a grassroots movement with each community introducing its own twist, painting quilt squares not only on barns, but also on floodwalls, craft shops and restaurants.

    The quilts on the Taylor County Quilt Trail are painted by members of the community, including students from Taylor County High School.  These quilts honor our wonderful heritage of family, farming and of course, quilting.

    The Cathedral Window Quilt pattern is one of the thirteen barn quilts in Taylor County and it is gorgeous!  It’s a beautiful quilt styles that captures the inspiration of a beautiful church window and allow us to have a little part of a cathedral not only in our homes but on our barns. You can see this quilt pattern on the Taylor County Quilt trail at 2979 Old Columbia Road in Campbellsville Kentucky.
