Quilting and farming are two important aspects of Kentucky culture. Pairing a barn with a quilt pattern not only honors both, but recognizes the rural heritage that has been the fabric of America since colonial days. The Foothills Quilt Trail Committee strives to preserve quilt history as well as stimulate interest in the preservation of barns and their historical significance. This statue honors quilters. The colors and artistry of their hand work warmed families and adorned homes. Quilting has emerged from craft status to a form of modern art. Through quilt projects, our goal is to encourage art appreciation, local history, community pride and economic support. The Foothills Quilt Trail Committee: Edna Alcorn, Carita Bergelin, Jean Cline, Carmileta Evans, Priscilla Gotsick, Susan Hyatt, Marti Knipp, Cathy Leach, Gladys McDaniel, Walt Rybka, Betty Sharp, Karen J. Slone, Rosemary Stokes, Larry Wilson—Stephen Tirone, Sculptor.
