Industry Arts
Occupation Quilt pattern designer, teacher and longarm quilter
Location Henderson, NV, United States
Introduction I'm Diane Nagle, and I live in Henderson, NV. I have loved quilting since my Grandmother put quilts on my bed as a little girl. I started quilting, self -taught, in the 1970's. I quilted until Rheumatoid Arthritis became a part of my life and I had to stop. Later in 1999 I discovered machine quilting and went back to quilting with a vengeance! It was a turning point in my life. I have designed patterns for fabric lines with companies like RJR Fabrics and Benartex since 2008. Prior to that, I worked in a in a quilt shop for over 4 years. I long arm quilt, have taught classes in quilting, machine embroidery, EQ7 software, and taught at Bernina University in 2013. My pattern company is called Peddlecar Quilts, and you may find many of my designs through Keepsake Quilting and Hancock's of Paducah. Patterns can also be ordered from me directly. Being published in magazines is a great honor. I am married, have 3 children and 5 grandchildren, and 2 dogs. I enjoy the desert life (which happens to be very good for my arthritis!) Quilting is my passion, but I also love a good book, gardening, painting, cross stitch, crafts and motorcycles!
