For all of our quilt loving fans!

It is with great pride and slight confusion that I inform you that my sons artwork is now in an exhibit at the @nationalquiltmuseum. Yes, THAT national quilt museum. Seriously, I am proud of their great work and I know my mother who loved needlepoint and cross-stitch would’ve been over the moon about something like this.
