Designer: Original design

Materials/Techniques: Silk and cotton fabric, Hobbs silk batting, silk and polyester threads, purchased trims, machine appliquéd and quilted on my Bernina 830.

Artist Statement: On a recent trip to Turkey, I encountered the design idea "fear of empty spaces", meaning every inch is filled with motifs. It struck me that in life, we fear those empty spaces and hope we can find a way to cope when it happens.
