Comforter is a quilt with carefully hand appliquéd numbers representing the artist’s weight fluctuations through the years. The numbers begin with the artist first conscience memory of her weight at 12 years of age. The weight gain is represented in bright orange, and the weight loss in a delicate, white floral. The weights documented range from 1990 until 2011.

Lines is a documentation of weights with ages and years from the artist memory from when she was 12 years old until 25 when the piece was made.
