The NYC MQG Double Wedding Ring Quilt Challenge

 

NYC MOD Quilt Guild Double Wedding Ring Quilt Challenge

Welcome everyone to my stop on the NYC MOD Quilt Guild Double Wedding Ring Quilt Challenge! The NYC MOD Quilt Guild has partnered with EZ Quilting/Simplicity, Interweave and Juki to challenge you to show everyone your creative spin on this classic pattern.

The Double Wedding Ring Quilt is a pattern that is probably on many quilter’s bucket lists. It wasn’t really a block I ever thought I would make, but when Victoria Findlay Wolfe asked if I was interested in giving it a try and joining the blog tour, I couldn’t resist saying yes.

Double Wedding Ring Quilt by Fresh Lemons Quilts : Faith

I decided to dig into my Anna Maria Horner fabric stash and pair the prints with ivory and blacks for the background and cornerstones. I’m using EZ Quilts Double Wedding Ring Templates that can be found at Simplicity or your local quilt shop. I’m pairing the templates up with this tutorial.

Double Wedding Ring Quilt by Fresh Lemons Quilts : Faith

Initially I was going to do a single ring mini quilt, but cutting these pieces out was sort of addicting, so now I’m not sure what size I will end up making. Time to practice my sewing of curves!

To play along, simply make a Double Wedding Ring quilt that falls into one of the following 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.

Then visit the challenge page to upload your finished quilt image. The deadline is December 1, 2013. There are tons of sponsors and great prizes for the winning quilts.

If you’d like a chance to win the templates I’m using for this quilt, just leave one comment in this post. I’ll pick a winner on Sunday night.

And be sure to continue visiting along with the blog hop, there’s bound to be some great inspiration!

    You always pick such great colors! This is a quilt that I have looked at and thought about trying many times. Then I look at all of the curved piecing and think about trying to pick fabrics to make it scrappy and it never even gets started.

    WOW! This quilt is definitely on my bucket list but I just thought it would remain there and never get completed. I have had issues with sewing curves(blamed it on the cutting). Now if I win those templates, maybe it will become a reality. Love your work and thanks for the awesome inspiration.

    Wow! I’ve had this one my quilter’s bucket list for 4 years now. This QAL just might bring the inpiration I need to get going. I loved Victoria Findlay Wolfe’s quilt and I totally opened my eyes to making a modern version of the Double Wedding Ring quilt when I first saw it. I am in love with what you’ve come up with so far. The low volume centers and the black for the ovverlapping. Truly lovely! I must acquire the templates:D

    LJ says:

    Your layout is so cool; can’t wait to see what you create! I’d love to win a set of these templates. I do think most of us THINK about trying the DWR quilt but get scared off when we see templates and curves. The EZ templates sound perfectly wonderful.

    I made my very first quilt last year for my sister who got married last fall. I started to make a double wedding ring quilt and quickly realized how deep I was in over my head!! I switched to a much simpler design and kept my sanity (and actually finished the quilt!). I’d love to attempt it again now that I’ve made a few more quilts and I know this template would help a ton. Thanks for the giveaway, and for being such a wonderful resource for newbies like me! :)
