History of the Colorado Quilting Council Quilt Trail


In 2011 a proposal was submitted to the CQC Board to join in the movement to promote Quilt Trails across the United States. At the March Meeting, it was approved with funding. The purpose of this movement was to promote the heritage of quilting in various communities and awareness of quilting.

The first quilt trail opened in Littleton as a walking trail in July 2011. It grew and spread thru the Littleton area to include the Broadway trail and downtown Golden. In 2012, Boulder County, Midland, and trail additions to Golden, Northern Colorado and Jefferson County were created

In 2013, Arapahoe./Douglas County and several private individuals were also added to all of the trails.
