As Diane's beautiful quilts unfold, so do the stories that lead to their creation. As a talented designer and applique artist, Diane allows her creative spirit to speak through her quilts, using fabric and design.
This wife, mother, and grandmother has been sewing as long as she can remember. It is one of her greatest joys to share the work of her hands as she unfolds the stories from her heart. Diane and her husband Dan live on a farm near Coleridge, NE. They have seven children and two grandchildren.
She has enjoyed a love of fabric and design since she was a young girl. Inspired by her mother, Diane learned the art of sewing and is passionate about quilting. Diane's quilts are inspired by many life experiences which become "music in my soul," she says. Sharing the "music" is her goal.
