Quilt Trail of Pocahontas County

The Quilt Trail of Pocahontas County traverses through the idyllic countryside highlighting the unique and spectacular quilting heritage of West Virginia. The 19 quilt squares chosen for the 2013 Sesquicentennial themed trail are rooted in 19th century origins and Civil War significance. During the celebration of West Virginia’s 150th Birthday and Civil War history, the patterns connect the strong heritage of quilting to the plight so many endured during the Civil War. Quilting provided a way for women to quietly express their sentiments and support a cause while honing the necessary skill of quilting. Today, the art of quilting lives on in Pocahontas County through quilting guilds, quilt raffles, and quilting parties among friends!
