Upstate Heritage Quilt Trail

Walhalla, SC 29691

Upstate Heritage Quilt Trail (UHQT) is a non-profit, all volunteer organization. Their mission is to celebrate area heritage through artistic quilt panels that tell a story with color and design reflecting the timeless tradition of quilting.

Each quilt has a history. And many of the quilt descriptions listed on the UHQT website, and through signage, offer details about family ancestors and historical references that can't be found anywhere else.

Since 2019, UHQT has created 288 (and counting!) quilt panels that lend artistic value to the buildings on which they are displayed. Quilt panels can be seen on homes, historic buildings, parks, schools and businesses throughout Anderson, Oconee and Pickens Counties. UHQT has recently expended to include Greenville County. View the Upstate Heritage Quilt website to learn the history of each quilt panel and see a map of panel locations.

The Upstate Heritage Quilt Trail committee compiled suggested itineraries for experiencing the quilt trail at a self-guided pace. These tour itineraries will take you to panels located in Oconee County:
