NYC MOD Double Wedding Ring Challenge + Giveaway

The NYC MOD quilters have partnered with EZ Quilting/Simplicity, Interweave and Juki to sponsor the Double Wedding Ring Quilt Challenge! Use the Double wedding ring template/or pattern to create a project, then enter it to win amazing prizes!


I'll be making my first DWR quilt for this challenge using my red and neutral over-dyed fabrics from the last post. I pieced my first four arcs.


Challenge Categories:

  • SMALL - ONE RING: 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.
  • MODERN: 4 rings or larger. 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! 
For all categories, quilts must be made of three layers and bound.

The EZ Double Wedding Ring templates are available at www.simplicity.com or at your local store. You don’t have 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.

The judges for the challenge are Darlene Zimmerman ( EZ quilting), Vivika DeNegre (Interweave), Lisa Mason(president of NYC MOD), Victoria Findlay Wolfe(Quiltcon Winner, with Double Edged Love), and Elisa Albury.

The deadline for entries in December 1, 2013. You can enter up to three times, one project in each category, any project you have started this year. Enter at the following pages:

  6. Since many many years the Double Wedding Ring pattern is my absolute favorite - but I have never made one yet, can you imagine. The one from Victoria Findlay Wolfe and Lisa Sipes was so über stunning, that ever since then I am thinking about a modern version. So far, its only in my head. With a pattern, who knows what might happen :-)
