We got word that Solveig Wells, who was featured in our April 2013 issue in the article “A Wrinkle in Time,” has passed away and that saddens us alot. If you’ve read the article, you know how Solveig, sick as she was, took the misfortune of Hurricane Katrina and turned it into a reason to make quilts in order to heal. Unfortunately, though Solveig’s spirit was healed, her illness didn’t go away. She passed away on March 22nd. I never met Solveig in person, but I wish I had. Ricky had the pleasure and when he did, he decided immediately that hers was a story that needed to be told in TQL.
