EZ Double Wedding Ring Challenge

lifesavers

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!

    I just started reading your blog as I ventured through the summer sampler series. I really enjoyed the tutorials and appreciated the information that you've provided. I've always been fascinated by circles in quilts and look forward to seeing your submission.

    I have always loved the DWR quilt. If I won a set of templates, I guess I would just have to enter the contest. Always enjoy trying something new. Thanks for the chance to win.

    This doesn't have anything to do with this post, but I just wanted to thank you for all of your info about shopping for sewing machines. I went to buy a machine with intentions of getting a 7700, but it's discontinued now and I couldn't find one in the Dallas/Ft Worth area. I wound up getting an 8200…LOVE IT ! I went in that store feeling fully armed with your info printed out and in my purse if I needed back-up ! LOL But I have to say I had a wonderful buying experience and walked out feeling like I got a very good deal ! Thanks !

    Brilliant! Thanks for the chance to win the templates. I've always wanted to try a wedding ring quilt, and maybe this is just the push I need.

    I've always thought the double wedding ring was too traditional for my taste but I will enjoy the challenge of making it modern – plus my best friend is getting married next year so this could serve double duty as a gift . . .

    This is so wonderful! I really want to make a double wedding ring quilt. These templates would be the push I need. Thanks for the chance.

    Hoping so very desperately that I win one of these sets – I just had a thought for the fabric I could use for this!

    After a retreat weekend with nothing but straight seams I'm so into doing a double wedding ring. Since my wife also remarked she was a little afraid of sewing curves, we'd love to win a set of the rulers since everybody who tried them told us, that the relatively soft curves were great to train.

    I'm so interested how this year will look like works for the challenge. Last year was so exciting and I'm sure that this year it will be awesome too!

    I think I'm going to make something for this contest. I need to sketch and get to work so I am finished and not pushing the deadline!

    I recently saw this challenge and I'm definitely thinking about joining in. I haven't tried the double wedding ring yet and it's about time I'm thinking. Thanks for the chance to win.

    You did an awesome job with your quilt. It is definitely a winner.
