DIANNE’S JOURNEY: THE OUTBACK TO A KING’S PALACE 

 

Originally trained as a florist, internationally award-winning quilter Dianne Johnston was first inspired by the local native flora around her while raising her young famiy in the outback. Her very first attempt, an applique quilt based on Australian wildflowers was a winner in the 1988 Bicentennial Exhibition.

Recently, with a string awards under her belt, both internationally and throughout Australia, her journey culminated in receiving a personal invitation to present her quilts to members of the Royal Family in the King’s Palace, Abu Dhabi, one of the most luxurious palaces in the world…. quite a leap from her humble outback beginnings!

A special collection of Dianne's most recent works will be on display…. including the King's favourite!
