We learned about Diane's quilt on Jinny Beyer's website: "Beauty Happiness, Family, Love,” began in a class with teacher Patricia McLaughlin where Diane learned to create a lifelike Japanese lady. From this, she created this beautiful and peaceful scene. She found patterns for the blocks from Kumiko Sudo’s Circles of the East with the Japanese symbols being found on the internet. This quilt was accepted into the International Quilt Festival in Houston in 2012."
