Welcome to my stop on the EZ Double Wedding Ring Challenge blog hop!
If a Double Wedding Ring is on your quilting bucket list (I know it’s on mine), you’ll want to hear about this. The NYC MOD Quilt Guild has teamed up with Simplicity, Interweave, and Juki to sponsor this quilt challenge. Put your own twist on the classic DWR design to win serious prizes.
You might remember last year’s version of this challenge, the EZ Dresden Challenge. My Lifesavers quilt, which I made for the Dresden challenge, placed in both the challenge and at QuiltCon. So I can vouch for the fact that a contest like this can really push your creativity in new directions and inspire a project that you may not have come up with otherwise.
And I can also vouch for the amazing prizes that are on the line. : ) My winnings last year included batting, fabric, more rulers, a book, and an entire rainbow of thread in its own cabinet—and that was for third place! This year’s prizes include a Juki sewing machine, gift certificates, and much more. So put this one on your to-do list!
Just like with last year’s challenge, there are various categories that you can enter. It doesn’t have to be modern (there’s a traditional category), and you don’t even have to make an entire quilt—just one ring can qualify! To enter, images of your entry must be uploaded by December 1. For all the details, visit the NYC MOD blog.
And to get you started, I’m giving away not one but two sets of EZ Quilting’s Double Wedding Ring templates. Just comment on this post by Wednesday, July 24, for a chance to win.
Don’t forget to visit all the other stops on the blog hop for more chances to win. Good luck in the challenge! I can’t wait to see everyone’s creative interpretations of a double wedding ring!
