Long Description:
This is one of 49 quilt panels which have been placed to date along Prince Edward Island's Arts and Heritage Trail. The purpose of the panels is to "raise the profiles of the participating arts and cultural partners". Mounted on the front of each venue, they are intended to draw attention to the fact that either artwork, heritage items, or both, are to be found within.

This quilt board is mounted on the front of the Green Gables Heritage Place visitor centre. Green Gables Heritage Place is now a National Historic Place created around Green Gables, the house and grounds which inspired the novel "Anne of Green Gables". We visited the site in 2015 and understand that it is being redeveloped as of 2018, so it may look somewhat different than it did when we visited.

Quilt Boards of PEI
Quilt boards are used to designate Arts & Heritage Trail participants, providing visitors with an easily identifiable trail to follow. An Island symbol, the quilt speaks strongly of our creative heritage. The quilt boards found along the trail have been created by Island visual artists working with participants to reflect each arts or heritage venue thematically and visually.

Quilt Quilt Board trails are found in 22 states and 4 other provinces. Each trail has a specific purpose and art model. On PEI the purpose of quilt boards is to raise the profiles of the participating arts and cultural partners.

In June of 2015 the first Arts and Heritage Trail Quilt Board Car Rally was held with teams participating in separate routes along each coastal drive.

We hope you enjoy our quilt board art and the Arts and Heritage Trail.

Every property has a Quick Response (QR) Code sign that will take your smartphone back to this website for more information about the related cultural attraction.
