visual artist tessa layzelle makes one of a kind appliqué quilts.


Tessa’s quilts are made using self-taught traditional needle construction skills. Each piece is composed, cut, appliquéd, quilted and bound by her own two hands.

She sources end-of-line linens and cottons and applies her distinctive use of colour with dyes and paints.

Works are made as one off pieces or made-to-order in small batches. This is playful! sustainable! making. practical paintings, if you will.

Tessa works to commission producing one of a kind textiles for children, domestic interiors and commercial spaces.

Tessa studied fine art in Brighton, she now lives and works in her home studio with her young family in yorkshire.


Tessa’s works are stocked across the UK, Europe and USA.
