I call this Quilted Canvas. It is an original art piece that I have created using traditional quilting methods and free motion style quilting. A mini quilt in 3D on an artist's canvas. Even though it is on an artists' canvas there is no painting involved...merely fabric.
This Wall Hanging/Fiber Art starts with a base of a 10" X 10" 3D stretched white canvas. The mini quilt overlay is a cotton print with 2 layers of batting for a dimensional look and feel.
This is a cotton print of Noah's Ark on the high seas! At night with the moon high above and scattered golden stars! With all animals on board including giraffes, elephants, pigs, etc..The background is a muted shade of blue representing the ocean. White doves are flying about. Multiple decorative quilting stitches are done in a curved pattern across the entire front to help anchor all 3 layers together and add that finishing touch. Look at the pics closely to view this multiple stitching.
The borders are a continuation of the Noah's Ark cotton print and wraps around the sides and into the back.
A felt has been added to the back to close the opening of the canvas. A saw tooth hanger has been attached at the top for easy hanging (a small nail is all that is needed for hanging).
A mini quilt that is perfect for that limited wall space. Especially appropriate for a child's room or a Nursery.
THIS IS NOT A TOY. Please do not allow children to play with.
The Quilted Canvas is an extension of my love for quilting. I strive to push this art form of quilting to the fullest. I do hope you will enjoy my creative endeavor and enjoyment of all things quilted.
