Trip Ideas for the Quilting Queen

There’s plenty for quilting enthusiasts to enjoy in Pocahontas County! If you’re looking to spend a nice day to get your quilting fix in, be sure to follow our itinerary in this “Quilting Queen” trip idea!

Freedom Quilts is an amazing quilting place to visit. Freedom Quilts is a nonprofit organization that was created to craft personalized quilts for family members who have lost a loved one in the line of duty. You can call ahead to schedule an appointment to see these gorgeous, personalized quilts being made. Or, if you’re moved by these efforts, you can volunteer and lend a hand to help craft part of a quilt yourself.
