Hello and welcome to my online nook! I'm Diane Gilleland, and I've been here since 2005. I'm a designer, writer, and producer of crafty things. I've never met a craft I didn't love – though it should be said, I have only an uneasy détente with knitting. At the moment, I'm deep into plastic canvas and English paper piecing, but I'll try any craft once.

Please do not contact me for marketing reasons. This blog is no longer being updated. If you'd like to contact me on a personal level, here's my email.

Work I've Done:

  All Points Patchwork - my forthcoming book!
• I wrote Kanzashi In Bloom and co-authored Quilting Happiness. My newest book is All Points Patchwork.

• I've had craft projects published in several magazines: Craft Stylish special interest publications, Sew Stylish, Woman's Day, Stitch, and Sew News.

• I've also done craft project design for websites including CRAFT, CraftStylish, and Spoonflower.

• ...Aaaand these are a few of the craft books where my work has appeared.

I live in Portland Oregon, where I explore locally-roasted coffees and take photo safaris to farmer's markets. There's a better-than-average chance that I'm watching either Mad Men or The West Wing right now.

...And if you'd like even more info on me, I have this page of interviews I've done.
