This colorful patchwork of quilt-inspired gardens and hand-painted, quilt-themed, super-sized murals deliver dazzling views in the communities of Bristol, Elkhart, Goshen, Middlebury, Nappanee, and Wakarusa. It’s the only experience of its kind in the world!

Till next season, Quilt Gardens 

The Quilt Gardens are dormant again till next spring, but never fear: The fall and winter seasons are when we plan for next year.  We let our hearts be warmed by memories of more than a million blooms in vibrant reds, oranges, purples, and more. And we circle May 30 on the calendar for next year, the official opening day for Quilt Gardens. We hoped you enjoyed this past summer’s Quilt Gardens. Thank you to the volunteers and staff who put in hour after hour to plant, weed, water and care for the flowers and plants, and to prep the flower beds for the next season.
