My name is Nina Lise Moen and I live in Norway. I made my first quilt in 1998 when my daughter was seriously ill and it has been my main creative outlet ever since. I quilt for many reasons, mostly for fun, but also as a way of expressing myself. I love making a variety of quilts in different formats and using different kinds of materials. My work has been in various exhibitions, competitions and publications both nationally and internationally.

About a decade ago I was so lucky to be part of a group who amongst other worked with art therapy and discovered the therapeutic power of art. Wanting to pay that forward, I started the breast cancer project Make a Boob in 2010.

I have also been so lucky to win a publishing contract, and my first book Gledesspredere was published in March 2012. I design patterns for sale and for the Scandinavian quilting magazine Quiltemagasinet. I also teach a variety of quilting classes.

You’ll find tabs to my pattern and tutorial pages at the top of the page.
