The Carpenters Wheel at Friends

The Quilt Greeting on Friends Building

The Quilt Greeting on Friends Building

As you enter the village of Paint Lick from Madison county, crossing the famous Paint Lick Creek, you can’t help but notice one of our most recent projects. It’s part of what is called “The Quilt Trail” and it is a fitting symbol for the Friends of Paint Lick blog. We are grateful to all those that made this a reality-from the first dream stage to the final mounting by some very brave men.

For those interested in the story of how this project all came together and just how many friends of Paint Lick were involved see this article that Ike Adams wrote last year for The Appalachian Connection (a .pdf scroll down to page 6). Ike does a good job of tying the pattern chosen to Dean Cornett and local history.

You may not realize this ties our little Village to a new national event known as the Heritage Corridor Quilt Trail. (explore the other quilts in Garrard County)
