May Giveaway Day

It’s Giveaway Day at Sew Mama Sew again, so welcome to my blog, Mrs Moen, and thank you for stopping by. I am a Norwegian quilter, designer and teacher, and this is my third time participating in Sew Mama Sew’s Giveaway Day.

My prize is
one of my “Dance in the rain” quilts (machine appliqué on vintage linen cloth). This is my favourite saying by which I try to live each and every day

and these fabrics fresh from the shop:a butter- & dragonfly starwith a supporting cast of 4totalling approx 1 yard of fabric



and one of my pdf-patterns (English or Norwegian) by your choice.(From Mix & Match for Christmas pattern package)
(from Funky Fowl pattern package)




One winner takes it all!




So, for a chance to win you have to leave a comment to this post. Please make sure I have a way of contacting you if you should win. I will ship internationally.

The giveaway is open until May 25th and the winner will be randomly picked by
Random.org in the morning on the 26th (Norwegian time). Good luck to you all; I’m off to check out the other participants!

Sorry, the giveaway is now closed!

    Those fabrics are truly lovely and your saying about learning to dance in the rain is so very true. Someone is going to be one very lucky person when you draw their name. Thank you for your very generous gift.
