Diane began as a traditional quilter in the late 90’s, gradually modifying patterns and gravitating to art quilts, specifically participating in art quilt challenges. Her quilts are included in 5 published books and multiple special exhibits traveling the country, including Houston’s International Quilt Festival. Diane retired in 2016 after a 32-year career as a Department of Army civilian and now has time to be more creative and explore quilting on even more new levels! Diane and her husband, Tim currently live in Iowa. They are certified foster parents and enjoy RV-ing.
