Celebrate Back to School Days Giveaway

Welcome to my blog, Mrs Moen, and thank you for stopping by in time for the Back to school days celebrations with the Quilting Gallery – and at the same time celebrating my 3 year blogaversary. Two giveaways with one stone so to speak.


I am a Norwegian quilter who, amongst other things, designs patterns and teaches classes, and my first book was published this spring (see the top of the sidebar). This is my first blog hop with the Quilting Gallery. Although our school days are long gone, I still enjoy this time of year when everything, inluding myself, seems to settle down after the summer holidays.

My prize for the giveaway is these two small fall inspired mixed media quilts made with my layer upon layer technique using different kinds of sheer fibers on a felted wool foundation.

Everything is cut freeform using scissors, so both the shapes and edges are perfectly imperfect.

The quilts are made to be hung together, but can also hang separately.


I have been debating with myself whether to add text or not, so I decided I would leave it up to the winner: If I draw your name – what would you like them to say? I will use the suggestion made by the winner and add text or leave it according to her/his wishes. If you don’t have an opinion that’s fine; I’ll figure it out.)

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 September 3rd when the winner will be randomly picked by Random.org in the evening (Norwegian time). Good luck to you all and make sure to stop by at the other participants’ blogs. You’ll find them here.

Blog Hop Party with Give-Aways

  10. Happy 3 years of blogging!!! I love the hangings - the colours are beautiful. Not sure what I would want 'texted' on them... I would have to think on it. They look great just as they are! Thanks for the chance!

  15. Those are lovely quilts. I don't have any art quilts but it would be great to own those. thanks for a chance.

  16. Oh Nina Lise, these are absolutely beautiful. If I were lucky enough to win, I'd truly treasure this always. Although I'd have a personal struggle to display it in my living room, bedroom or sewing room. Guess I'd have to rotate. And, you are so good with words I'd rather you pick (if I were so lucky).

    Inspirational mixed-media art. Love it. What a treasure!

  18. Congrats on publishing a book! Your art is unique & beautiful. I would want text, but I not sure what exactly.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Hmm that's tricky text or no text ... my first reaction was no text, but thinking about it, as it's a gift maybe you shoudl sign it in a way ... else the words tree and winter, icy, fog come to my mind ..
    Congrats on your first own book!
    Thanks for the chance!
