Christmas gifts 2013: Hayley portrait quilt

Hayley quilt - finished and mounted on canvas

For my brother and sister-in-law, I decided to make another quilt like the Linus one and the horse-vulture.. small portrait, framed by objects, and with an irregular edge. Hayley is surrounded by her favorite ball with feet, foster kittens, rawhide bones, and tennis balls. My FIL’s questions (“is it a patch for a jacket? is it a placemat?”) made me give in and mount it on a subtly-painted 18×18″ canvas.
