On my wall and a request :)

I have a lot on my plate but my wall is still occupied by my Wolf. He is growing nicely. I already see where I will change some fabrics on my next one but in all I like the 3D effect. That is one thing when designing fractured image, you can't really see how it look until you are pretty far along because most of the time it look like a ball of nothing. I will often do the same pattern twice for the desired effect. I took this picture from a distance to show you the effects so don't mind the messy studio :D

This weekend I gave a class at Atelier Fiber Arts. I always love to teach my passion for quilting. My next class might be an all day Bargello Quilt. It is an easy technique but that give a great result!!!

I am also designing my next flower of the month. It will be a poppy, I hope you will do this one with me :)

On the Q'nique 14+, we are slowly warming to each other. It is all about the hand / pedal coordination and it take practice, practice and finally practice. I am trying different treads combinations to see how she react. She is a lot more sensitive than my sewing machine but I heard it it pretty typical of a quilting machine. Oh by the way I named her Gracie ....not that original but it fit :)

Finally, my sweet husband decided to make a web site for me and he asked me if you would agree to use your comments on the site. You are all so very encouraging and I would not take your comments without your permission :)


  1. Yanicka, I didn't realize your wolf would be that big. He's beautiful!! You are so talented, and I always love to see what you come up with. I can't wait to see him finished. Thanks for sharing him on MCM!

  2. That wolf is wonderful. Your design wall looks very interesting!

  3. your wolf is progressing so well. I watched a craft channel yesterday making a bargello quilt thinking that will have to go on my list thought it was made of small squares but seeing in done in strips makes me think it is not as hard as I thought though colour placement needs thinking about

  4. That wolf will be quite something! It reallly is looking lovely. I love seeing your workspace and good luck with your website. Feel free to use my comments.
