Quilt Gardens in Amish Country

A friend of mine just informed me of a unique happening in Amish country in northern Indiana that some of you might be interested in. It is a quilt garden tour. Check it out at There are some beautiful pictures of the gardens at the site. I gathered this information from the website. It sure looks like something I’d like to do.

What You Need to Know about the All-New Quilt Gardens Tour
- It's easily accessible, eco-friendly and just a single tank of gas (or less) from most of the Midwest's major markets
- It's absolutely free and totally flexible- you set the pace
- It's the perfect way to experience the beauty of Northern Indiana's Amish Country through a panorama of artistry, gardening and tradition

There are 80,000 glorious blooms, 16 gigantic gardens, 16 super-sized murals, 32 juried designs, and 7 welcoming communities all placed along the nationally-recognized
Heritage Trail Route.

...a colorful patchwork . . . inspired by quilt designs... powered by imagination.
