The Florida Quilt Trail
The Florida Quilt Trail, created in 2013 by Stehanie Metts, is linked to the American Quilt Trail Movement. The first quilt block, Trenton’s Compass Rose, designed by Stephanie, symbolizes guidance for visitors to Trenton. Local artist, Kathy Sausen, painted this block as well as the “Tree of Life” and four patriotic blocks on the north side of the Suwannee Valley Quilt Shoppe to honor “Those Who Serve.” Folk artist, Janet Moses, painted five blocks on the outside wall of the Florida Quilt Museum, the oldest commercial building in Trenton; formerly a 1910 grocery and dry goods store. White Springs, Madison, Live Oak, and other communities are now joining the Quilt Trail as it winds its way through Florida.
It all starts in historic downtown Trenton, Florida. Click on a quilt block below.
