It’s not often in this blog that I write about places to go. Recently, we visited the Quilt Gardens, a really fun, ongoing garden tour in the Elkhart, Indiana, region.
Volunteer gardeners from that area installed more than a million annuals in 18 gardens. Flowers and colorful foliage plants are arranged to reproduce quilt patterns on a large scale.
In addition to the gardens, 21 large quilt pattern murals adorn assorted buildings along the tour.
The Quilt Gardens are open to the public now until Oct. 1 and are free of charge. For downloadable maps and guides visit online Quilt Gardens in Elkhart
Unless you’re short on time, I suggest you plan on taking at least two days to enjoy the gardens and other attractions along the way.
