Double Wedding Ring Challenge and Giveaway

Hello Everyone,

Have you ever wanted to make a Double Wedding Ring Quilt?  Well here is your chance!!!

My friend Victoria, asked me to be part of this blog hop and I have also partnered with EZ Quilting for this challenge!!

First before we get into the challenge let me show you what I have done so far.


I decided to make a three ring quilt as a table runner.  It is not joined together yet because I need to switch around 4 of the little squares so they alternate.  But once I do that, I am home free.

As many of you know, I LOVE Kaffe Fassett fabrics so much, I had to use them for this little project.

I bet you want to hear the rules?

The NYC MOD quilters are excited to announce the Double Wedding Ring Quilt Challenge!

Don’t be afraid of the Double wedding Ring! This is a challenge to learn a new skill, try new techniques and let your creative exploration shine through on this traditional pattern!

This is a challenge FOR EVERYONE, All quilters… of any style from Anywhere! This is an international challenge.

Please note : in each category, a quilt must be made of three layers and bound. To get your creative juices flowing, The Quilt Alliance (one of our generous Sponsors) has put together a PINTEREST page with examples of Double Wedding Ring quilts included in their Quilt Index. Feel Free to pin Double Wedding Ring quilts. 

Categories

SMALL: ONE RING! Easy! size: under 20″ or smaller… This is a great way to play and learn your curves, and try your own version of making this fun design!

TRADITIONAL: 4 rings or larger…  Make the traditional double wedding pattern by using the template and your choice of fabrics…not straying to far from the traditional style. Four rings or larger for this category… must have three layers and bound.

MODERN:  4 rings or larger… ANYTHING GOES!  How can you interpret the double wedding ring, put a MODERN spin on a traditional design? Piece it, applique, fuse, whole cloth? Possibilities are ENDLESS!!!  No rules other then, it must have three layers and bound.

You don’t need to use Darlene’s Double Wedding Ring templates to enter, but we’d sure like it if you did! Any double Wedding ring template will work.
 

Come back here to link up your projects in their correct category. You can enter up to three times, one project in each category, any project you have started this year.

EZ Double Wedding ring challenge and single arc is available at www.simplicity.com  or at your local store. You do not have to use this template to enter the contest.

Judges: Darlene Zimmerman ( EZ quilting), Vivika DeNegre (Interweave), Lisa Mason(president of NYC MOD), Victoria Findlay Wolfe(Quiltcon Winner, with Double Edged Love) Elisa Albury

We have some amazing sponsors (of which I am one) who have donated FANTASTIC prizes! Click here to see the entire list and for more information.


See me.... there I am Canton Village Quilt Works... My prize is a $50 gift certificate to my online shop!  Perhaps you could use it to purchase some Kaffe Fassett??

Very cute table runner. I definitely have a DWR project on my wish list but I'm a bit afraid of the task. The EZ rulers/templates sound like they are the way to go.

DMR is the first quilting design to catch my eye. I saw with yellow background and red rings - so pretty. Would be fun to make one now - I'd start with a pillow I think! The templates would help, that's for sure. Thanks for putting my name in the hat for the drawing!

Anna McCurdy said...

Jackie,
I have made a DWR quilt but not for a long time. Perhaps I will try it again - it is so much easier with the acrylic templates - you can cut so much more accurately.
Thanks for participating in the hop, for your generation donation to the challenge and for all the wonderful contributions you make to quilting.
Regards from Alberta,
Anna
