Quilting is an amazing craft in Amish Country. We have lots of great quilters who put lots of time and effort into their quilts. Quilts can take years to make, and sell for thousands of dollars.

That's why this new exhibit at the Elkhart County Historical Museum is  great. In less than one year, the Maple City Quilt Guild reproduced 30 heirloom quilts.  Here are just a few examples of the quilts that will be on display.

The exhibit opens on Friday, March 25.  You can view the quilts from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.  I hope you go and enjoy these wonderful quilt reproductions.

While you're in Bristol, indulge on a hot fudge sundae or hand-made chocolates at  Chocolate Sensations - a local favorite!
