Playing with Your Scraps
with
Kelly DuMaresq
Saturday, April 10, 2021  

Kelly will be leading an ideas workshop via Zoom that will be a fun day all about using our scraps. She will review what makes a scrappy quilt work, ways to approach these quilts, etc. There isn't a specific quilt project that you will be working on in this workshop. Instead, Kelly will be showing lots of ideas for scrap quilts using strips and at least 10 different patterns. You will be making some of the samples for easy future reference using your own scraps. In Kelly's words - "You will play and you will have fun".

My name is Daisy Aschehoug, and I currently live in Nesodden, Norway. I grew up among sewing machines and fabric, but it wasn't till I was in my thirties that I finally asked my mother to teach me to sew. Quilting offered an opportunity to combine my new love for sewing with all of the art classes that I'd taken throughout my life. I realized a passion for selecting fabrics to incorporate into traditional and modern quilt patterns.
I've been making quilts since 2010 and designing quilts for magazines since 2016. I'm 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. 

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.
