Finding Balance - Yin and Yang Quilted Sweatshirt Jacket

Summer is passing and winter is approaching the mere principles of the Chinese yin and yang symbolism. Unity of opposites in conflict but dependent upon each other in creating balance. With the completion of the Yin and Yang piece I strive for balance in my own life and to my dear friend to whom I gifted the piece to. This piece was fun and moving to create. Each piece of fabric was laid and stitched uniting the light, dark, bright and pale patterns of the fabric together as a whole. Reminding me to balance family, friendships, work and play on a daily basis for a holistic healthy lifestyle.
