ELKHART — Using their artistic vision and gardening skills, several local volunteers were getting their hands dirty on Thursday by planting thousands of flowers in quilt patterns along the Heritage Trail, a tourism region encompassing communities across Elkhart County.

The Quilt Gardens are coming back to Elkhart County for their 16th year. A total of 15 garden sites will be planted in the coming weeks in Elkhart, Goshen, Nappanee, Bristol, Middlebury and Wakarusa. It’s sponsored by the Elkhart County Convention & Visitors Bureau.
