Diann Logan pursues various interests besides exploring the mysteries and quirks of maturity. When she’s not navel gazing she is likely to be quilting. Her involvement with quilts spans decades and she has contributed much to the field. She has authored, designed, exhibited, taught, lectured, been commissioned and collected, and made over two hundred quilts. She is the author of Designs in Patchwork (Oxmoor House, 1987) and her designs and patterns have appeared in numerous other publications ranging from Ms. Magazine to GenerationQ. Visit diannloganquilts.com to stroll through the gallery of her quilts.

She is a faculty member of University of Colorado Denver and lives in Arvada, Colorado with her husband and their spoiled spaniel. The Navel Diaries is her second diary. The first one is safely locked in its little cedar box with the names of old boyfriends carved on the lid. The key was lost long ago, but she can still pick the lock with a bobby pin.
