What Visitors Have Said About The Quilt Block Trail

I took a class after learning about the trail during the Houston International Quilt Show. I have not had that much fun creating something in a very long time! While I can sew, I definitely cannot paint... The instructions and materials provided during the class enabled me to create a beautiful custom quilt block that I proudly hang in my sewing studio.

Thank you Winchester Quilt Trail for spreading the love of sewing through this Quilt Block Trail!

Purchased one from the wall at Murphy's last night (first visit to Murphy's, will be back) Hummingbird will be place on our porch at home in Austin. Already loved visiting Smithville and now will always add a stop in Winchester.
