I think this Gypsy Wife quilt is one of my favorites. When I started sewing everything was normal, then Wallace died right in the middle, and I cried over a lot of the blocks. When I finally finished the top it made me sad to look at it, so it sat for a long time unfinished. Then, @valoriwells agreed to quilt it for me, and she quilted a giant sunflower for Wallace. Now when I snuggle with it I feel like he's there and so is Val, so it makes me happy. πŸ’™πŸ‘―πŸΆπŸŠ #igquiltfest #gypsywifequilt
