With Fall Fast Approaching, The Schoharie County Quilt Barn Trail Is a Must

Written By Editor on 9/15/13 | 9/15/13


All across the county there are painted blocks on display - at the Middleburgh Hardware store, the Apple Barrel in Schoharie and outside of Diana Cooks' art studio in Richmondville - all beautifully hand painted in community spirit as part of the Schoharie County Quilt Barn Trail.
 
This quilt was painted by the Century club and is on display at the Dr. Best House and Medical Exhibit in Middleburgh
The Barn Trail, which has an incredibly enthusiastic promoter in Ginny Miller Schuam, has over thirty of these artistically amazing blocks (that range from all sizes) on display - with another twenty or so planned to go up within the next year. Ms. Schuam, who Chairs the Barn Trail, hopes to add twenty of these to the Trail annually.

While the Quilt Barn Trail is relatively new, being founded just last year, it has spread like wildfire and engaged a sense of community spirit to bring people together to paint these beautiful blocks that unite the tight-knit community we are and that of the closeness and warmth a quilt so appropriately symbolizes.

The Quilt Barn Trail also has painters with a cute sense of humor.
And with the beautiful colors of Fall fast approaching in almost perfect coordination with cool, crisp temperatures, I would recommended a trip around the Quilt Barn Trail to appreciate the beauty of both our county and our county's people who came together to create such beautiful images in a sense of artistic and community pride few places have anymore.
 
I encourage you to visit and like the Barn Trail's facebook page and view their brochure to see where these blocks are next to you and perhaps plan an afternoon of delicious locally made Apple Cider and artistically magnificent blocks in our community quilt.
