Brownfield is home to the first Quilt Trail in Texas

BROWNFIELD, TX (KCBD) - Quilt trails are beginning to pop up all over the state, but the very first trail in Texas started in Brownfield.

The Terry County Trail consists of ten quilt blocks. They're put up throughout the County so visitors can take a driving tour. All the blocks are colorful quilt designs painted along walls or signs.

Governor Rick Perry launched a quilt trail initiative that he hopes every county in the state will be a part of. The trail is another symbol of pride for the people of Brownfield. It is also a unique way to boost tourism.

"Well, they come and they stay in our hotels, its economic development, it also shows off our community as a little different than everybody else's," says Mary Collier with the Terry County Quilt Trail.

You can leave a little bit of yourself behind. Time capsules are at some of the blocks, so visitors can leave notes about their experience on the quilt trail.
