Quilt Garden is an easy way to make a Greenwall. The hexagonal quilt tiles form a whimsical pattern of plants. Each tile appears to be a stylized clod of soil, but in actual fact is a handcrafted fabric of organic material. The fabric of each tile differs a bit and this makes it a natural backdrop for vegetation.

Quilting is a traditional technique to make padded decorative blankets from residual rags. This time-honoured craft is still in use and can draw on very complex patterns. The Quilt Garden fabric is also a lined quilted blanket, and in this case in a hexagon pattern. 

In some tiles you will find embroidered insects, because insects are indispensable to nature.
