Gypsy Wife

I am happy to announce that after a short 8 months that the Gypsy Wife Quilt is completed -- I showed you all a few pictures of the top and the process a while back and it's been kind of sitting while I thought about how I wanted it quilted. After much thought I decided to be true to myself and go with my usual chrysanthemums -- there is just something about them that I love and the quilting always pops when it's washed. I went with cream polyx embroidery thread for my quilting because i like the shiny but didn't want the thread to be a distraction from all the other colors in this quilt. I'm truly pleased with the outcome.
I'm thinking about starting another one some time soon in some bolder colors.
