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 a very 'cushy' feel you will appreciate!
The center cotton print is of 2 dogs...one large dog protecting a tiny one. They are on the beach sands in shades of brown. Written in the sand is script that proclaims 'HUGS'. So appropriate for our little friends! Multiple decorative quilting stitches are done in a curved pattern throughout the sand they lounge on. These multiple decorative quilting stitches also helps with anchoring all 3 layers together. Look at the pics closely to view this multiple stitching.
The inner border is a light blue with heart designs cotton print.
The outer borders are various shades of blues in a swirly cotton print that wraps around the sides and onto the back.
All borders have multiple decorative quilting stitches also.
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 just the right size for that limited wall space. Can be displayed proudly in most any room of your home. For the dog lover and the sea lover!
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.
