Athens Quilt Barn Cruise Professional Review and Guide
"Resting in the Appalachian foothills, Athens County is a cool place full of arts, crafts, agriculture, and interesting people. Mother Earth News listed it as one of the “Twelve Greatest Places You’ve Never Heard Of.” Wanting to promote the artistic and agricultural aspects of the county as well as its Appalachian heritage, a group of individuals, artists, and organizations devised the Quilt Barn Project.
Called a Patchwork Tour, this quilt barn tour combines hills, quilts, and weathered barns. The route passes five of the Athens County Quilt Blocks and the Bicentennial Barn, all in the hills of Athens County; there is a flat stretch on the Hockhocking Adena Bikeway."
