Following the trail is an excellent way to discover rural areas of East Tennessee within a 2-hour drive of Knoxville.

I drive by 2 of these barns with the quilt squares on them every day going to and from the office. We don't have the pamphlet or map of them, but we love spotting them when we are out and about.

Smile Thanks so much for finding this thread and posting!

Thank you, AppalachianQuiltTrail, for putting up the website information for us. This is a wonderful way to see E. TN.

We are anxious to follow this beautiful drive and soak up the TN of years past and hopefully yet to come. Thanks.

Thanks for this great info. DH and I haven't made it to those areas of the state yet but plan to eventually. This info is a keeper for our "to see" file. If only we live another 100 years, we'll see all of the beauty of East TN we hope to!

That's funny, inave, I am doing the same thing. When I open my favorites file on my desktop for "Things to See in TN" they won't all fit onto the screen!

I have to scroll down to see them all. I am now doing sub-folders and reorganizing. I sure hope that all of my organizing doesn't take up my traveling time through Tennessee.

How could one be a newcomer to East TN and NOT have such a folder!!! I feel sorry for the people born here who probably take it all for granted!! But then sometimes I envy them for having grown up in such a wonderful place.

I think having these folders on our desktops is pretty common among C-D folks.

I really don't think there are too many people in Tennessee who take their blessings living here for granted; it's nice to know that you certainly don't.

It's great to get all of this wonderful TN information, that we might otherwise miss on our own, from all of these sharing TN natives and transplants who like to pass the goodies on.
