I have been working away on this particular quilt for some time, and at last, it's finished. As you can see from the photo. This woman is coming "apart at the seams", pun intended. She has her hands across her chest to try to hold herself together but can't seem to do it. The lines running down the front of her are static - stop and start and uneven. I threaded my machine needle with two threads so they would bunch up and resemble nerves.
She suffers from depression and anxiety, and she is in pain. I care about mental health issues and the stigmatism that often surrounds it. Depression is hard to explain to those that have not experienced it, and I hope this quilt conveys the feelings visually to help make more people aware.
