"Enough Already"

Sandy Pflanz

Too much of my life has been spent trying to measure up to others' expectations and being the overachiever in an effort to be liked and like myself. also, society often only looks at externals to judge your self worth. This quilt tries to express some of this; the pressure for perfect grades, the right house, income, physical appearance, weight, and the expectation to follow institutional rules. In addition, how people are treated as objectes, even when these artificial measures are attained and the pain it causes, including the emptiness (the blank space, the strings attached, the little quilting giving little depth) is on the quilt. The felt freedom when stopped is represented by the butterflies.
