    Blind Quilter

    This may have been posted before, but just in case it hasn't I wanted to pass it on as it's really worth viewing. It should open automatically but if it doesn't, right click on the link and hit "open link in new window"

    This is absolutely incredible...'what an upper' this is!
    We can all learn a great lesson from her.... and not about quilting either!

    Diane is wonderful. She is in my quilt guilt and won many many awards. It is amazing to watch her work. As she hand stitches ties the knot she puts the needed on her shoulder stuck in her shirt. That way she does not lose it. She is awesome.

    I have watched this Lady several times. She is sure an inspiration, does not take the handicapped cop out, as many do that are much more capable of being productive. She is a very talented Lady.

    thank you, thank you, thank you. I have never seen such courage in the face of difficulty. What a blessing our eyesight is; how much we take for granted in this world. She is an inspiration to all.

    I have seen this several times before; yet it always amazes and inspires me. Diane is truly a remarkable and outstanding woman! Her quilts are lovely and her attitude is wonderful. We should all remember how blessed we are to be able to see what we are quilting and remember to give back to others as we can.
