Fav 5
Diana King was featured.  She loves to play racquet ball every morning with a friend.  She has a degree in math education.  Her collection is recipes and she loves asparagus.  Her favorite holiday is Christmas.  Her claim to fame was dinner with Elder L. Tom Perry in his home when she was in high school.  She showed many fun creations but said she gives most of her quilts away.  One quilt had buttons that she made.  The flag quilt is a picnic quilt made for a family member.  Diana is a great member of the guild and it was wonderful to get to know her.
She passed the Fav 5 to Jolene Hill.
