WarmFolk quilts and patterns reflect a love of traditional craft and a celebration of modern aesthetics. Daisy Aschehoug created WarmFolk as a way to move her teaching and quilt design forward in the quilting industry, while also pursuing various art quilt endeavors. This site is currently in development but will soon include a range of products and services all designed to keep you and your loved ones happy and warm. Or "koselig" as they say in Norway.
My name is Daisy Aschehoug, and I currently live in Oslo, Norway. (Moving soon to Nesodden). I grew up among sewing machines and fabric, but it wasn't till I was in my thirties that I finally asked my mom to teach me to sew. Like so many aspects of my life, having children changed me and sparked the need to learn something new. I'd taken art classes throughout my life, though I'd yet to pursue anything artistic professionally.
I've been designing quilts for magazines since 2016 and am most passionate about the art of modern traditionalism and incorporating curved piecing into utility quilts. I'm a member of the Modern Quilt Guild and the Studio Art Quilt Associates.
At this point, I feel like I've had several past lives: whitewater kayak instructor, wildland firefighter, natural resources facilitator, district court mediator - the list is long. I'm happy to be fully immersed in designing, making, and teaching the art of quilting now.
