EZ Dresden Challenge Kick-Off

Today marks the kick-off to the Salt Lake Modern Quilt Guild and EZ Quilting/Simplicity EZ Dresden Challenge, celebrating Darlene Zimmerman’s 20th anniversary designing quilting tools for EZ Quilting. Over the next two weeks, you'll have the opportunity to see boatloads of inspiration from bloggers who have prepared tutorials, interviews, and lots of great information about the EZ Dresden ruler. You'll have the chance to win an EZ Dresden ruler for yourself at each stop along the way. After the blog hop, the challenge will run all summer long, culminating in a link-up party at the Salt Lake Modern Quilt Guild's blog in September.
