Quilt Trail every day; Quilt Show annually!
Welcome to Terry County, home of the first Quilt Trail in Texas
Our quilt trail honors our largest agricultural crop, cotton. In fact, Terry county is part of the world's largest cotton patch. Just think, the cotton in your shirt and jeans may have come from here. The fabric in your favorite quilt may also be from a local cotton field!
Come to Brownfield throughout the year to see our Quilt Trail. And, you are also invited to our awesome annual Quilt Show which will be held in April 2014 in Brownfield.
There is no entry or admission fee for our show. There's also no
judging; it's done solely for the love of quilts and quilters!
We were the first county in Texas to have a Quilt Trail, an ag tourism project other counties are encouraged to implement. In fact, Governor Rick Perry’s office issued a proclamation announcing the Quilt
in Houston on October 15, 2009 at the 35th Annual Houston International Quilt Festival
. The goal of the Initiative is to have a quilt
trail connect all 254 counties in Texas, starting with 66 counties in North
The Terry County Quilt Trail was
honored in Houston at the world's largest quilt festival as a Trail Blazer for the state-wide Quilt Trail Initiative
. The Terry County Quilt Trail was represented in Houston by founding committee
members Mary Collier and Susan Lefevere.
The Texas Quilt Trail Initiative will use the Terry County Quilt Trail
as the foundation from which to start this very important agricultural tourism
project. Our Quilt Trail members were invited to participate in
the announcement along with Joene Grissom, Grissom and Associates; Louri
O’Leary, Governor’s Office of Rural Tourism; Dr. Lou Hodges, Texas A&M
University; Karey Patterson Bresenhan, President of Quilts, Inc. and Nancy O’Bryant Puentes, Executive Vice
President of Quilts, Inc. Also honored
was Donna Sue Groves, founder of the National Quilt Trail Project
At a luncheon for over 1000 participants, Terry County Quilt Trail
block, County Farm, located at Sundown State Bank, was featured. Learn more about our Quilt Trail
