Athens unveils downtown quilt trail


The city of Athens has unveiled a new quilt trail in its downtown. The “Patterns of the Past Quilt Trail” will celebrate the heritage and artistry of quilt making, inviting both residents and visitors to explore the different patterns and stories behind each square. A series of quilt squares will be displayed on historic buildings, landmarks, and local businesses throughout downtown Athens. Each square is connected to the region’s cultural history and local artists. The self-guided map is available on the Distrx app, providing information, photos, and audio to enhance the experience.
