Handmade Applique Quilt in white with applique letter quote 'We can be heroes' inspired by David Bowie.
This beautiful quilt will be a stand out piece in any room or nursery!
It has been lovingly sewn on my vintage singer machine and has appliqued bold colour lettering.

This actual quilt measures 93cm x 131cm but I can make to a size of your choice, just get in touch and I will let you know what is possible!

I make the entire quilt from 100% Cotton (including top and bottom layers and the wadding) but use recycled plastic bottle felt for the applique. Not only is the felt saving the environment little by little, it is also washable and not prone to bleeding or bobbling!
I stitch through all 3 layers and applique to get the quilting effect, with coloured thread on the top to match the row and white thread on the bottom, so on the reverse side of the quilt you can see all the quilting lines in a tonal white.

Each quilt will be laundered with a gentle fragrance, enzyme and colour free detergent, ready for a sofa or kids bed.
It can also be laundered by you with a little bit of care, I send information with each quilt on how do this successfully.

I have specified 21 days as I usually make to order and keep the master quilt but let me know if you are in a rush and I can let you know if I have any in stock ready to send immediately.

Thanks for stopping by!


I love sewing, I love free motion applique and I love colour.
I love my vintage singer featherweight sewing machine and the fact that it sounds like raindrops when it sews :).
After taking a quilting course when heavily pregnant I fell in love with the process, although wanted to create something more modern and bold than the normal traditional designs.
With every quilt I love it more and more!
I currently sew while my son sleeps, these feel like the stolen hours of the day where I get to live out my dream. Even the smell of my sewing machine fills me with joy!
Thank you for looking at my quilt, I hope you like it!
