The finished Bowie quilt

I’ve now finished the David Bowie quilt, which I backed with more shot cottons and outline quilted with embroidery thread.

Another Bowie quilt I’ve seen, very different from mine, was made by Holly Hickman shortly after his death. I like the pieced background in shades of grey, the lucid colours, and the quilted dates at the bottom of the quilt.
