2020 Quilt Trail Theme!

American Genius Highway Quilt Trail Passport Theme for 2020

It’s A Garden Party!!

Get all the rules and regulations HERE!

The Missouri Highway 36 Quilt Trail is the ultimate quilting experience.  The Trail was initiated to combine an appreciation for the area’s agricultural heritage, artistic talent, and regional history.

While traveling the Trail, visitors are encouraged to enjoy attractions, local shops, and restaurants. Husbands “along for the ride” will find particular interest in the “Genius” sites along the way that have made north Missouri famous.

Dubbed “The Way of American Genius” for its connection to innovative Missourians such as A.T Still, J.C Penney, and Gen. John J. Pershing, and innovations including Sliced Bread and the Pony Express, Missouri’s stretch of U.S. Highway 36 runs west to east, from St. Joseph to Hannibal.

Participants in this year’s program will find shop owners and staff who are enthusiastic to help visitors with any quilting needs, from picking out fabrics to assisting beginners with cutting the blocks. Many are offering their block in a kit to make the project easier. They all want your quilt project to be a success!

To register for the prize, quilters can find all the rules and regulations on the HWY 36 Quilt Trail page.
