I hope you’ll enjoy this visit from the eyes of a seasoned 12-year-old quilter. Noah is quite impressive! Here is a look at the quilts Noah describes in the interview.
Here is Liam, age 9 and also a quilter, Noah and mom, Claire in front of the quilt that started it all for their family. Check out Claire’s beautiful vest!
