I am a quilter and pattern designer, playing with fabric and creating my stuff in Norway
and this is my first year of participating in One World One Heart.I have created 3 little quilts for my giveaway. For a chance to win one of them you have to leave a comment to this post. Only bloggers please, as this is a blogging event. If you are a no reply blogger, make sure you include your email address in your comment so I can contact you if you should win.
The pieces are very different, so if you have a favourite, I suggest you put it in your comment. I will draw 3 times; the first winner will get his/her favourite (if I know which one it is). The drawing will happen on February 15th at 8pm, Norwegian time, and the winners will be announced here and contacted by email.
“One World One Heart" (ca 10 1/2" * 11")Inspired by the name of this event, I made one world and one heart. The background (representing the world) is built with different coloured scraps, covered with a layer of tulle, and then quilted with straight lines. The heart is made with yarn and embroidery floss, and embellished with buttons in different colours, sizes and shapes (representing the people of the world).The title of the quilt is embroidered by hand.
“Pink Princess" (ca 11" * 9 1/2")The crown is made from scraps that have been stitched together. The quilt is shadow quilted by machine, and embellished with at few buttonsand some fabric covered buttons.
“Penguins in Snowstorm” (ca 7”*13”)This happy, little creature is one of my all time favourites.The quilt is made from scraps and quilted with straight(ish) lines. The lettering is done freehand by machine.
