Airing of the Quilts:
Celebrating Macon County's
Quilting Heritage

PLEASE NOTE: Airing of the Quilts will not be held in 2015 but will return in 2016

The Airing of the Quilts celebration is an event held in Franklin, NC featuring hundreds of quilts all throughout Historic Downtown Franklin as businesses and homeowners will be hanging quilts from their store fronts and porches that will create an unbelievable burst of spring color throughout the Town of Franklin, NC and Macon County.

The Historic West’s Mill District of Cowee also featured quilts and tours of Rickman’s Store and Pleasant Hill Church which will include quilting demonstrations from the Cowee Quilters.

Visitors can also tour the back roads and discover the Macon County Quilt Trail with 25 quilt blocks that have been installed on barns, homes, and businesses throughout the county. Quilt Trail maps are available for purchase.
