Blind Quilter – Diane Rose

When Diane Rose asked the Lord for guidance back in 1998, even she will tell you that she was surprised to get an answer so quickly – almost overnight!

Since 1998 Diane has made hundreds of quilts. This is an extraordinary accomplishment even for a passionate quilter. However, for Diane Rose, it seems unbelievable because Diane has been blind since 1984.

Diane uses her quilts to show what God has helped her overcome despite the obstacles she faces because of her blindness.

To see Diane work on her sewing machine is like watching a miracle in action. She has the most desirable spirit and energy.

Besides her quilt making she also has her own ministry. Her “Rose of Sharon” ministry is her vehicle for her motivational speaking engagements which she uses to inspire others.

Says Diane; “And if God can help me do it, He can help you do it..”
“You can make something of your life or you can do nothing with it. It’s up to you.”

I hope you will comment and share her story on facebook so others can be inspired by this remarkable woman.

    Diane, I fought cancer for a year now and I saw your program on your quilts. I did what you did, asked God what He would like me to do while going through cancer treatments. Use You Hands for I gave you a gift. Between treatments I made Mother Nature Natural Beauty a gift from God slight touched from from Jim Luna. The next day Loma Linda Hospital called me to take out the chemo port out of my chest, I am a cancer free. In Christ I thank you for your Love and showing me the way through Christ. Jim Luna

    God’s work is so awesome seen through His creatures. Diane, you are very inspiring and encouraging. Thanks very much. May God’s blessings be upon you always.

    That is awesome I know a lot of people that sit with pity, it would be wonderful if all the people here could see this clip maybe they will jump up and say I can do this instead of saying I can’t. This clip is amazing God sure has blessed Diane Praise be the Lord.

  18. Rahe Mord says:

    I would like to know if I can(and how to)order one of Diane’s quilts and what the cost might be. I have a specific idea of the pattern and it needs to fit a king size waterbed (8′ by 7′). She is awesome. I am classified “totally disabled” physically but I can’t sit around doing nothing either. I do handyman stuff for people or show someone else what to do, it gets done. I also help out at church as a trustee doing or helping with repairs on the building. I’m head of maintenance at a Men’s Transitional Housing place I helped start back in “98″. I did that to provide myself a job remodeling the place and managed it for the first 5 years. God just keeps on providing things for me to do as long as I get up and get going. Praise the Lord for He is good.

    Thank you for telling us about people who are doing things in spite of problems, it really helps us all.,

    God bless you!!!!!!!!!

  28. larne a gayatgay says:

    this is not just amazing…
    this is a manifestation that we only
    need to talk to God and ask HIM specific things
    so HE knows what to answer.
    Diane asked God where/ what is her talent
    and God showed it to her…in her hands.

    …let us talk to God, ask HIM what HE wants you
    to do….

    Diane, you are truly a child of God.

  29. Dot Kuku says:

    This is a miracle! Diane’s life shows that there’s nothing the ALMIGHTY cannot do.

    GOD is an awesome GOD and greatly to be praised! Diane is an inspiration and may the ALMIGHTY continue to bless her as she blesses others.

  30. Jonna Liv says:
