Quilt Trail hosts Fall Color Tour Saturday

OSCEOLA COUNTY — As leaves change color in Osceola County, tourists and locals alike are invited to take their family to view the best colors along the Osceola Quilt Trail.

The Annual Fall Color Tour on the Quilt Trail is scheduled for prime fall color viewing on Saturday, with special features along the way at quilt block sites throughout the county.

By following the Osceola Quilt Trail guides, visitors are invited to travel a self-guided motor-tour. The maps are available at chambers of commerce and businesses throughout the county. The guide also is available for downloading from the OQT website – osceolaquilttrail.org.

A brilliant Michigan fall patchwork of colorful fields and forests will frame over 80 painted quilt blocks on barns, businesses, public buildings and other structures. Area artists’ work will also be featured at both the OLAH Studio in downtown Evart and at the Kettunen Center outside of Tustin; both sites host quilt blocks. While touring the OQT, individuals are invited to stop in and put their hand to the painting of a block between noon and 4 p.m. on Saturday at the OQT painting studio at, 110 W. Main St. in Marion.

Additions to the Quilt Trail made since publication of the 2012 Guide can be found on the website. The Osceola Quilt Trail is a volunteer public art project affiliated with the Osceola League for the Arts and Humanities (OLAH).
