Teacher Spotlight

Daisy Aschehoug

I have a knack for breaking down concepts into teachable moments. I’ve taught high school literature, whitewater kayaking, fire ecology, mediation, and for the last four years, I’ve taught the art and craft of quilting. I started quilting in 2010 and have designed quilts for magazines since 2016. Most of my quilt designs incorporate some element of curved piecing into a modern traditional design aesthetic, and many of my quilt designs have won awards. 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 Studio Art Quilt Associates. I have a masters in Environmental Studies from the University of Montana, and I spent several years in the US helping federal and state governments work with communities to develop best practices for managing natural resources. Now that I’m 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.
