The assignment for this project was to incorporate graphic design while exploring a new craft, quilting.
I wanted to express my feelings about anxiety in this quilt. I struggle with anxiety and thought the quilt would be the perfect medium to represent my feelings.
I made this 80"x53" quilt based on my own experience with anxiety. I still use the baby blanket I received at birth, and wanted to compare the qualities of a blanket to anxiety. Even though the blanket is used for comfort, both can be enveloping, smothering, and feel weighted.
