Pink Pillows

Welcome to my blog, Mrs Moen, it is very nice to see you whether you have stopped by hundreds of times or this is your very first visit around here. Today is the Blog Hop Party at the Quilting Gallery and this is my contribution.

I am a Norwegian quilter who had a first book published earlier this year, designs patterns amongst others for Quiltemagasinet (a Scandinavian quilting magazine), and teaches a few quilting classes. Feel free to have a look at my patterns, free patterns, tutorials and book while you're here, or do stop by anytime!

For my giveaway I have made two pillow covers from which the winner can choose one - the light dusty pink one


or the pink one


both fitting a 20”*20” pillow form (not included). You can see the rest of the pillows I made this week here. You'll also find a diagram with the measurements in case you would like to make a pillow of your own.

To enter the drawing, please leave a comment on this post. Do let me know which pillow cover you would like and make sure I have a way of contacting you in case you win. I will ship internationally.

The giveaway is open until December 16th, at 8pm Norwegian time, when the winner will be chosen randomly.

If you’d like to check out rest of the participants in the blog hop, you’ll find them hereHave fun!

I am sorry, the giveaway is now closed!

  3. You're always a delight to read and it's always fun to see what you're up to. Pink or dusty pink? Hard choice but pink it is! Bless you.

  8. I need some new cushion covers but never get around to making any because of everything else I prefer to sew but I won't buy any either because I could make my own!
    So I would love to win one of yours, not least because it would be a thrill to own some of your work:) Either would be most welcome.

    I love the contrasting colours and I wish I had a steady hand to recreate the straight lines that you've done.
    Unfortunately I have hand spasm's from medication so my lines look like zigzags... ;-)
