Lizzie Portrait Quilt

I made this small quilt portrait, 5 in square, in response to a fund raising event the Arkansas Repertory Theatre is doing.  In September they posted a request for artist to do pieces of artwork for their upcoming “5x5” art show. Every artist was told to pick up a 5 in square canvas to ensure size conformity.   My initial thought was to do a 5 in square quilt or postcard.  Then I decided to do this quilted portrait of my dog Lizzie (appliqued top quilted to batting without an actual quilt back or binding) and wrap the canvas.  Here it is.
 I used mistyfuse to attach the quilt to the canvas (literally ironed it on) then wrapped the fabric and sewed the fabric to itself and the canvas.
