The Schoharie County Quilt Barn Trail emerged as an outcome of the devastating floods of August, 2011, caused by Hurricane Irene & Tropical Storm Lee. It celebrates the unexpectedness of art on a building or wall instead of a gallery. The quilt blocks are honest, authentic, spirited, creative and most of all accessible. People relate to the quilting of ancestors, relatives, friends and themselves.
