How I Started Designing Quilts’
Daisy Aschehoug, from WarmFolk, will join us from Nesodden, Norway. Daisy grew up surrounded by sewing machines but it wasn’t until her late thirties that she learned how to sew. She has been making quilts since 2010 and designing quilts for magazines since 2016. Her background in Environmental Studies combined with her quilting allows her to explore the resources she uses in her craft and how they can reflect socially and environmentally sustainable practices. Daisy will share details on her design inspiration, walk through her digital design process and describe the how and why of her design choices. Part trunk show, part slide show and part story hour, this lecture contains Daisy’s life history for the past decade in quilting. We will also get sneak peeks at current projects that are not posted on social media. It’s sure to be a fun hour of stories and colorful quilts you won’t want to miss.
