My name is Daisy Aschehoug, and I'm an American currently living in Nesodden, Norway.
My mom was a home education teacher in the US, and she taught hundreds of children to sew before she taught me. It was my fault. I had no patience as a child and even less when I was a teenager. But around 2010, I wanted to make a quilt for the baby of a friend. With a mix of lessons from Mom and help from the internet, I honed my craft and began exploring my own designs in the quilts I made. I've been designing quilts for magazines since 2016, and most of those quilts incorporate some element of curved piecing into a modern traditional design aesthetic. In 2020, I published my first book with co-author Heather Black, Quilt Modern Curves and Bold Stripes.
I'm a member of the Modern Quilt Guild and the Studio Art Quilt Associates. I have a masters in Environmental Studies from the University of Montana, and I spent several years in the United States helping federal and state governments work with communities to develop best practices for managing natural resources. Now that I am fully immersed in designing, making, and teaching the art of quilting, I'm excited to explore how the resources I use in my craft can reflect socially and environmentally sustainable practices.
