DWR Challenge

Just wanted to share with you today the announcement of the NYC MOD quilters about the Double Wedding Ring Quilt Challenge!


NYC MOD Quilt Guild has partnered with EZ Quilting/Simplicity, Interweave and Juki to Use the Double wedding ring template/or pattern. You can create a project, then enter it to win amazing prizes from our sponsors! It's like last year's Dresden Challenge, but this time is DWR templates.

This is a challenge FOR EVERYONE.  There will be 3 categories: small, traditional and modern. I have to admit that until now I haven't sewn even a single DWR block. I guess the challenge is a good opportunity to give it a try!

There are some amazing sponsors who have donated the prizes! See below for the list of goodies!

 
How to enter?
The deadline is Dec 1st 2013 and you will find all the details about the cathegories, judges and prizes HERE.

Giveaway!
I have a set of DWR templates to giveaway! Just write the comment under this post and I will randomly choose one winner on 21st of July. 

And the winner is...
 #40 is Susanne @ Quilt it out

Susanne, I will contact you in a moment :) Thank you all for participating!

  65. Hi Joanna,
    I love the traditional pattern of the DWR- I have never made the pieced arc but have made the continuous arc quilt. The templates make it so much easier to be accurate which is important if you are going to get this quilt to fit together and lay flat. Thanks for participating in the blog hop and for the chance to win the templates.
    Warmest regards,
    Anna

  66. I would love to try to make a DWR quilt using these templates. Thanks for the chance to win a set.

    ReplyDelete
  67. You have a lovely clear blog, I would love this set of rulers to get me started.

    ReplyDelete
  68. I like the idea of the arcs being made out of a single piece of fabric. I have 4 big plastic tubs full of hand dyed fabrics and could imagine using some of those in a DWR - the fabrics would link it to the contemporary, and the design would link it to the traditional.

    Thanks for the opportunity to win! Now I'm off to have a look at the rest of your blog.
