Introducing: Diane Henry

DIane has been zooming across the country for several years teaching for Handi Quilter. I think this quilt is stunning. . . now I want to go to the opera!

Artist’s Statement

“A Night at the Opera” was inspired by the crystal chandelier in the Opera House at The Kennedy Center. My husband and I have been attending the operas there and appreciating the chandelier for over 30 years! I’ve been wanting to use that inspiration for a quilt for years! This quilt is part of the Handi Quilter National Educator’s 2023 Black & White Challenge.

Zoom in to see the quilting. Designed with Pro-Stitcher Designer. Quilted with Pro-Stitcher Premium on my Handi Quilter Infinity.

Diane Henry has been working with fabric since her grandmother taught her how to hand piece her first nine-patch block at age four. A blue ribbon winning hand quilter, she discovered machine quilting in the late 1990’s and has never looked back.

She works with quilting groups and shops leading classes for beginners and advanced quilters and organizing workshops; conducts lectures, classes and demonstrations at quilt shows; and serves as the owner/moderator of the HQ Pro-Stitchers IO group, supporting Pro-Stitcher owners and Pro-Stitcher Designer users. 

A professional machine quilter since 2007, Diane purchased her first longarm, a HQ Sixteen® with Pro-Stitcher® in 2008. She now uses a HQ Infinity® with Pro-Stitcher, a HQ Forte® and a HQ Sweet Sixteen® to further expand her creative options.

Diane lives in Northern Virginia with her husband, Terry and dachshund, JJ.
