3 Rivers Quilt Trail

County Wide

A quilt on the 3 Rivers Quilt Trail, Humphreys County, TN

3 Rivers Quilt Trail is a driving trail that showcases all of the beautiful quilt blocks that have been mounted on barns and outbuildings across Humphreys County.

Quilt block trails are also about days past, the times you slept under Grandma’s warm quilts and the picnics you had on them on warm sunny days. Quilts are a work of love, passion and self. They have meanings that tell stories of families and lives. They give us warm memories that last a lifetime. We want to bring those memories up time and time again when you see the quilt blocks hanging on barns, outbuildings, homes, and businesses.
