O. P. Earle students leave mark on Foothills Quilt Trail
Last week, a group of fourth graders, all fifth grade students and Ms. Berry, the art teacher at O.P. Earle Elementary School, hosted the Landrum Quilters. They worked together in painting two large quilt blocks.
The opportunity for students to participate in the Foothills Quilt Trail was brought to O. P. Earle by Ellen Henderson, a member of the Landrum Quilters.
The two quilt blocks will be attached to the school building later this fall as part of the Foothills Quilt Trail.
The development of the Foothills Quilt Trail was made possible by a grant to the City of Landrum from the Mary F. Kessler Fund through Polk County Community Foundation.
This special project would not have been possible without the Landrum Quilters, the Upstate Heritage Quilt Trail, O. P. Earle’s Faculty and Staff and the PTO volunteers.
Congratulations to the students who did an excellent job painting the quilt blocks and their enthusiasm in being a part of the Foothills Quilt Trail. For more information visit www.FoothillsQuiltTrail.com.
