The New York City MOD quilters are offering up a challenge.
They’ve teamed up with EZ Quilting/Simplicity, Interweave, and Juki to use the Double Wedding Ring templates or pattern to create a project, then enter it for a chance to win fabulous prizes from the sponsors!
UPDATE!! The winner of the set of templates in my give-away is June! Congratulations, June, and thanks to everyone for playing along. I hope you all decide to enter the challenge, templates or not!
And if you leave a comment on this post, you’ll be entered for a chance to win this very set of rulers for yourself! Then you’ll have no excuse for not entering this challenge. Did I mention there are prizes? Lots of fabulous prizes?
This challenge is open to everyone. Everyone. Anyone. All quilters of any style. (As long as you make your quilt out of 3 layers and bind it.)
Here are the categories:
SMALL: ONE RING! Under 20″ . . . or even smaller . . . this is a great way to introduce yourself to curved piecing and play around with the design.
TRADITIONAL: 4 rings or larger: Don’t stray too far from the traditional style of Double Wedding Ring pattern for this category.
MODERN: 4 rings or larger: ANYTHING GOES! Put your own modern spin on this traditional design. Let your imagination run wild.
This challenge is a great way for you to learn a new technique, try something new, and show off your creativity. If you need inspiration, one of the sponsors, The Quilt Alliance, has put together a Pinterest page with examples of Double Wedding Ring quilts included in their Quilt Index.
Go visit the NYC MOD Quilters post HERE for more information about the deadlines, a list of the sponsors, and a list of the fantastic prizes. You can find out who the judges are, how the prizes will be awarded, and how to upload your entry into the contest when you’ve got it finished. You have until December 1st, so get started!
If you don’t want to wait to try and win a set of the rulers (even though there are lots of chances if you visit everyone on the blog hop), the EZ Double Wedding Ring template set and single arc can be purchased HERE or ask at your local quilt shop. You do NOT have to use these templates in order to enter the contest.
Are you surprised that mine has a cowboy theme? I didn’t think so. I’m giving this one to My Cowboy to use in his Cowboy Cave when we get our house all finished. Or maybe I’ll steal it back to use in our living room when it’s finished.
I’m thinking about using this piece of fabric in my actual challenge piece . . . hmmm . . . I have way too many ideas for this!
Here’s the Blog Hop schedule so you can go visit everyone and have lots of chances to win yourself a set of these fabulous rulers:
And don’t forget to comment here for a chance to win a set of the rulers. I’ll draw a winner next Tuesday, July 16th. So go get started on your DWR Challenge plan!
