Strengthening the Economy through Tourism in the five parishes of Tangipahoa, St. Tammany, Livingston, Washington and St. Helena—one quilt block at a time.
EXCITING NEWS COMES FROM LOUISIANA TO THE WORLD !!!
The Louisiana Northshore Quilt Trail Association has formed a Foundation to pay Tribute to the single person who had the wonderful idea in 2001 to paint a quilt block on an old barn in Ohio in order to honor her mother. Because of the one and only DONNA SUE GROVES, Quilt Trails have drawn tourists to almost every state in the Union and have brought the very private art of quiltmaking into the public eye. And remember, that all of our Quilt Trails would not exist if it weren't for Donna Sue.
The mission of the DONNA SUE GROVES TRIBUTE FOUNDATION is to provide funding to insure the future of the Quilt Trail public arts movement thus strengthening Donna Sue’s vision of a Clothesline of Quilts across America.
