Q. What is the advantage in joining the Quilt
Trails of the Tar and Roanoke Rivers?
A. Being a member of the Quilt Trails of the Tar
and Roanoke Rivers means you are sharing your area's history and culture and helping bring
tourist dollars into your county. If your block is for your place of business
you are bringing those dollars right to your front door. The Quilt Trails of the Tar
and Roanoke Rivers Guide will mark the
locations of authentic quilt blocks on the Quilt Trails of the Tar River,
and offer details about history of the family or the building, and the
significance of the block pattern. The arts council’s website also these pages
devoted to the development of the trail and a link to an application for those
wishing to buy a quilt block and be added to the trail. Each block is featured in map brochure and a
booklet with the story behind the chosen blocks.
