Yeah! It's my turn to blog-hop today.
This is my first time participating in a blog hop,
and what a great one to cut my teeth on.
Our NYC Metro Mod Guild is hosting
this Double Wedding Ring Challenge.
EVERYONE is invited to join in and enter this contest.
No matter where you live or how you quilt!
Your entries must be of three layers and bound.
And as the new President of our NYC Metro Modern Guild,
I am one of the judges!
Here is a picture of the awe inspiring Victoria
and her best in show quilt, "Double Edged Love," from QuiltCon.
Now I have had the privilege of seeing this beauty
up close and personal and I can tell you it is the most
amazing quilt I have ever seen. If you ever get the chance to view it,
jump on it! The chance, not the quilt.
Now I'll show you a bit of what I did for my Double Wedding Ring. . . .
I have never been afraid of curved piecing,
and these templates make it so easy!
I started with a piece of made fabric from one of Victoria's swaps.
I was going to use the black and white fabrics for the center, but that went out the window.
I cut the arcs out of the made fabrics.
You could piece them with the templates or do a solid piece of fabric.
The sky's the limit here, and even then there are no limits!
I use lots of pins for the curves.
Here is my top.
I haven't layered and quilted it yet, but I'll show you that when I do.
So here is the giveaway!
You get the templates for making the Double Wedding Ring pattern,
5 fat quarters of NYC fabric,
and a pile of triangles leftover from my last quilt.
(I know, sneaky way to get rid of them!)
All you need to do is leave a comment and tell me
if and where you are traveling this summer.
Please make sure I can contact you by email.
I will pick a winner on Saturday the 20th at 5pm,
because . . . . .
I am leaving for Quilting By The Lake on Sunday!
A Thelma and Louise road trip with fabric instead of guns!
Here is a list of the bloggers to visit to see how they are approaching this challenge.
Good luck to everyone!
