Ten years already

In 2015, Dominique has already been quilting of 10 years. To celebrate that anniversary, she designed a playful piece based on her first bloc: the pinwheel bloc. Her inspiration? The joyful memories of the first creation.


The subject stays the same, but she instills it with her techniques learning and her sculpting magic. The palms bend and the pinwheel revolves thanks to its mechanism. The fiber artist goes outside the box stretching out a handle to the visitor.


To share her feeling better, she created an interactive piece which is intended as an invitation to be in contact with her world, with pleasure and sincerity, and to go back to joyful kids play memories.
