Does anyone remember last year’s EZ Dresden Challenge sponsored by Simplicity? It was a contest using Darlene Zimmerman’s EZ Dresden template and there were so many cool projects that came out of that contest. This year the New York Modern Quilt Guild is joining with Simplicity, Juki, and Interweave to host a new challenge using the Double Wedding Ring templates.
I have set of Double Wedding Ring templates to give away to get you started with your own project. I have loved double-wedding ring quilts, but been a little intimidated to make one. I’m so excited to start playing with these. You can find these templates on Simplicity.com (here and here) as well as places like JoAnn’s and your local quilt shops. There are lots of other stops on this tour with pretty inspiration of projects already started using them.

As with last year’s challenge there will be different categories to enter (as in you don’t have to make a whole quilt – you could even just make one ring!) as well as amazing prizes! To find out all the details, visit the NYMQG Blog. I’m excited to see all the new inspiration this year!
If you would like to win one of these sets of templates, just leave a message on this post. I’ll pick a winner next Monday, July 15. GIVEAWAY CLOSED.
