    Hello Again, I've searched everywhere but did not receive the photo tips email, (I don't have many a day), I've also checked my email address, nothing amiss there, will it be possible to send again or maybe a link to it.

    dfrank27 I did not receive the email for the photo tips.

    Since we are getting nearer to our submission timeframe, would it be possible to see in some format other than this blog all the questions and answers that are requested for this challenge. I keep seeing the same questions pop up and it would be nice to have the organizers display the frequent questions and answers in one location and what needs to be done/required by us for submission. Thanks!

    Cindyscat Fitness...if I missed it, I’m sure several did...as I’m always on this electronic gadget.

    While you have done the right thing by trying to contact them, I don't expect any issues as long as you do not profit from the work.

    On the artist statement it says 250 words but I seem to think it means a minimum of 250 words. Is there a maximum limit on words?

    RickyTims up to 250 word limit please

    As far as I know, it is OK to use images from clip art in your project as long as you are not selling the design itself.

    My partner just notified me that she is dropping out. Do I still submit a quilt or does that mean our 'team' will no longer be considered?

    grandedesign Hello - I just sent you a message - give me a few days and let me see what I can do~

    Will both team members be selected or could one be selected and not the other for the touring shows?

    grandedesign The intent of the exhibit is to showcase the exchange experience - so both quilts would be in the show.

    The artist statement does not need to be in English - we have 4 non-English speaking teams and we want everyone to use the language they are most comfortable with. We can use a translator for the artist statement if need be.

    Hello - please check announcements for FAQ's - Frequently Asked Questions

    grandedesign Hello You do not have to coordinate entry of your quilts - our system will tell us if we are missing an entry from one of the partners. Since we want the quilts to be a surprise - please hold on until April before sharing. We want to set up a section in See Quilts so everyone can post pictures there as well. Cheers

 The purpose of the International Miniature Quilt Exchange is to promote quilting across borders and cultures. The project allows two-member teams to communicate and connect with each other. Teams will then have the  opportunity to participate in a juried exhibition which will premiere at the  International Quilt Festival in Houston during the Fall of 2018. To see all the details - click on the Announcement tab and read about participation and quilt guidelines.
