The Quilt Genius American Quilt Trail


Dubbed “The Way of American Genius” for its connection to prominent Missourians such as Mark Twain, Walt Disney, and Gen. John J. Pershing, this quilt trail features quilt shops along Missouri’s historic U.S. Highway 36, running west to east, from St. Joseph to Hannibal.

The American Genius Highway Quilt Trail includes 12 shops. Many of the associated businesses are conveniently located just off Highway 36, while others can be found within the Highway 36 Corridor (a zone spanning 36 miles north and 36 miles south of the actual highway).

The trail starts April 1st and runs through Oct 31st! Great news!
You can complete the trail virtually this year or visit the shops in person.
