About the Authors

The designs in this book have been sewn by Rie Norum and Hilde Aaanerud Krohg. We are both thirty-something and between us we have four children between the ages of one and seven. We are both electrical engineers and when we first met on a weekend course arranged by a patchwork club near Oslo, we quickly hit if off. We have always got plenty to talk about and lots of projects waiting to be sewn. Patchworking brings us a lot of pleasure and we think it is the best hobby in the world.
