Solo Exhibition in Luxembourg

Posted by Daisy Aschehoug on

The 10th edition of Luxembourg's biennial International Quiltfestival took place from 9th until 12th May 2024. I'm delighted to have been invited for a solo exhibition among the other twenty-something fiber artists from around the world.

 

I'll update this post with a bit more information once I get a few more pictures and videos sorted.

Round Fabric Art Bowls with Kirsten Fisher

Posted by Daisy Aschehoug on

My husband finds it fascinating that I believe you can never have too many bowls. In our house, there is no end to the bowls in the kitchen, on the bathroom counter, on my bedside table. I love having places to put things, and Kirsten Fisher has a new book out that combines my love of bowls with my love of sewing!

I assumed that I would need special tools and materials, but everything she uses is either already in my sewing space or quite easy to get ahold of in the local shops.

I love how there are so many different options depending on the complexity desired. Kirsten uses single pieces of fabric, embellished fabric, and fabric that is pieced like quilt blocks.

She's also included strategies for dealing with directional (for example, stripes) and non directional fabric like florals or these black and white geometric prints below.

I love how she adds a bit of applique to embellish a whole cloth bowl!

You can read more about Kirsten on her website, and purchase your copy of her book in her shop!

My latest book, Quilting With Curves

Posted by Daisy Aschehoug on

Quilting with Curves Book Tour

I'm thrilled to announce that my new book, Quilting with Curves: 20 Geometric Projects has been released!

As part of the release, 11 of my friends and colleagues in the quilting business are giving away physical and digital copies of the book. They've said such lovely things and pointed out all of the aspects that I love about this book: the range of designs, the various difficulty levels, and the unexpected ways of using quarter circle squares! I'll add more in the coming months as I go through each of the projects. In the meantime, take a look at the flip through and pick out something that excites you!

While you're at it, please visit the links below to see some of the designers' favorite projects and comment on their blogs or Instagram posts to win a copy for yourself!

To win a copy of the book here, just leave a comment telling me whether you've tried curved seams before and what interests you most about them - big curves, little curves, curves in curves, curves and triangles. Or if you haven't tried them, I want to know if this will be your first time!

I'll announce a winner on July 8 in both my newsletter and on the blog so be sure to stick around.

Triangle Scraps!

Posted by Daisy Aschehoug on

My fabric stash is overflowing, and lately I've been trying to focus on ways to inspire people to use what they have on hand. These triangle shapes make good use of odd size scraps and create an amazing effect in a finished project. 

I've got two templates to share. This first one creates strips that can be assembled into diamonds. The second template set creates larger triangle units that can be joined into hexagon shapes.

When either the diamonds or the larger triangles are joined in an alternating fashion (dark up/light down and then light up/dark down), the checkerboard effect is pretty awesome!

Global Quilt Connection Videos

Posted by Daisy Aschehoug on

With so many restrictions in place during the Covid 19 pandemic, many quilt teachers switched from teaching in person to virtually. I participated in two Meet-the-Teacher events with Global Quilt Connection, and these were  the videos I used. The first presents my lectures and workshops for guilds, and the second showcases my offerings for quilters who want to sign up for workshops as an individual. Enjoy!
