They want to weave color, combined with history, through the county - with quilts. The Art Depository has started a quilting project which will put Jessamine County on both the Kentucky and National Quilt Trails.
The National Quilt Trail originated six years ago in Adams County, Ohio when Donna Sue Groves painted a quilt square for her mother and mounted it on the barn. The idea quickly caught on and can be mapped through several states.
Mary Kuster, gallery director at the Art Depository, is currently coordinating the project here in Jessamine County.
As a quilt has multiple layers, so does the quilt trail project.
There will be the aesthetic contribution when the squares are mounted on barns - as well as fences and even posts that will be set specifically for the project if there are not enough actual barn sides available.
As art and history are often woven together, so it will be for the quilt trail.
