New in Norway

I've been in Norway for over a year now, so to say I'm "new in Norway" is a little misleading.  And yet, as we plan to live out our lives here, each day continues to be full of adventure and possibilities. Each day still feels quite new.

I'm Daisy Aschehoug.  My family and I moved to Norway in July of 2017. The details of our story can emerge slowly on this blog, but the main reasons for the move related to work and family and escaping the hot, humid climate of the southern United States. 

As my final bit of this first introduction, I want to explain what I love most about my new home. Whether you call it "hygge" or "koselig" or "cozy/secure/safe/happy/comfortable," there is a pursuit of something good here that resonates with me. My mission is to integrate my love for quilting with this place.

To that end, I give lectures about quilting. I teach quilting. I design quilts and write patterns for quilt magazines. I curl up with quilts on the couch and tuck quilts around my children at night while they are sleeping. We eat off of quilted placemats and use hand sewn napkins.  We live quilted lives, and I'm happy to start sharing some of that with you here.  Thank you for joining me!

  • I just found your website and blog and LOVE your Instagram posts, as well. Your quilts are amazing and the straight line quilting looks so clean and really grabs your attention. I can’t wait to try it on my next quilt. What a brave and adventurous move! I bet it is very interesting and different over there, and I’m a little bit jealous…I would love to live with a snowy season again. I’m a transplant from Ohio to Tx, so we RARELY get snow.
    I look forward to hearing your stories and to seeing more of your beautiful quilts.

  • I found your beautiful quilt on the Adobe Illustrator Blog post here: https://theblog.adobe.com/quilting-adobe-illustrator/ The pivot pattern pdf link incorrectly sends me to the other pattern. Is this beautiful pattern still available? Thank you!
