We are thrilled to announce Daisy Aschehoug’s virtual book tour celebrating the release of her new book, Quilting with Curves: 20 Geometric Projects!
In the book, Daisy covers a technique typically daunting to quilters: curved piecing. Daisy makes this technique easy with her guidance. Readers can use the book's projects to show off their new skills and practice what they learn in the book.
“Most of the quilts I’ve made are built with quarter circle squares. Sometimes there are hundreds in a single quilt. Even though I’m drawn to and admire almost all kinds of quilts, there’s no question that I’m called to the quarter circle the way I imagine athletes and musicians are drawn to their positions in their fields. I look at the quarter circle square the way builders might look at bricks or the way my children look at Legos—these fun building blocks can be moved and turned and resized and recolored in a variety of ways that all end up constructing something beautiful. Each quilt in this book uses this shape, and my hope is that the diversity of designs shows the potential of a single element repeated throughout a composition.” —Daisy Aschehoug from Quilting with Curves.
For Daisy’s blog tour, many of the contributors, plus some quilting friends, agreed to join in and help celebrate the release of Quilting with Curves! Follow along to learn more about the making of the book, see some original projects, and read candid reviews. The full schedule is below.
