    Hello - I see that we have a few new quilters joining IMQE - please note we will start a new exchange with dates TO BE DETERMINED. If you have signed up for the IMQE in 2018, you will get information about the exchange, but not be assigned a partner. Thank you all for your support!

    Hello - for those of you that would like to share your miniature, please go to See Quilts (Select Quilt Gallery and then Add Quilt to Gallery) and add it to our TQS Gallery. Please start the title with IMQE 2017, then we can easily search the gallery and see all the miniatures. Look forward to seeing the teams selected for the IMQE Exhibition in the months to come in the newsletter. Thank you!

    Hello - spoke to John and Alex last night and the newsletter will feature a pair of quilts until all have been posted! They were both very excited to see so many TQS members at the IMQE Exhibition. I even had a text from Alex this morning " the (IMQE) Exhibition is JAMMED!" Woohoo - it is so exciting.

    grandedesign only the Teams in the show will be in the newsletter~ We are asking all that participated to upload a picture of the IMQE quilt in SEE Quilts.

    Hello - there will be pictures in the upcoming newslteers along with the stories. I spoke to Alex yesterday and she said "the IMQE Exhibition is like finding the gold at the end of the rainbow!! All those wonderful gems are a delight to see and the stories are wonderful."

    fitness.jrbs I had a look at the floor plan on the Festival's website and the IMQE exhibition certainly looks tucked away!! I also noticed the words "No photography allowed" at the top of the page. I hope this doesn't apply to personal use photos. My Kiwi friends have arrived there and promised me a photo of themselves with Susan and my quilt!

    Do you plan to post images of the quilts on this page after Thursday? Sorry I can't be with you but I shall be there in spirit. Have a wonderful time.

    fitness.jrbs They are all on Friends of IMQE's Facebook page, posted by Maria Nelga. I have just seen them all, lovely. But it would be great to read the artist statements.

    I’m planning on trying to meet people at the exhibit at 1 p.m. on Thursday. I’m driving from Fort Worth so am subject to traffic. Hope to see some of you there. Check out the location of the exhibit on the show’s web site.

    I saw photos of the miniature quilt exhibit on facebook and noticed that the locations of my partner and I have been switched. Who would I contact to fix the error?

    fitness.jrbs I don't know how to put a link to the Friends of IMQE Facebook page. It is a closed group and you have to be invited to be a member, so of course I have a link on my Facebook page. Are either of you on Facebook?

    On Monday I was at a get-together lunch of Aotearoa Quilters' members in my local area (Aotearoa Quilters is the National Association of New Zealand Quilters). There were 15 of us there, and 3 of us have quilts showing at Houston (the other 2 are in art quilt categories I think). Not bad for a little country with a total population of 4 million. Go the Kiwis!

    janealam I would love to make contact with mini-makers in NANZQ. Have been to your symposiums several times (Auckland, Queenstown, Christchurch) and have friends 'downunder'...Norma Ewart, Helen Marshall, Donna Ward,etc. Just heard about IMQE, and would love to participate, but am no too computer-savy. What do you suggest? jane a

    Wednesday at 7 sound like a great plan to me. Suits me as I also have a class booked on Friday so I will be at the IMQE display at 7 on Wednesday. - feeling happy

    I will be there beginning Wednesday evening through Sunday. My IMQE partner from South Africa have our Quilts in the exhibit. I also have my Cherrywood “Reining Prince” quilt that will be on display too. I met Alex Anderson at Alden Lane in Livermore CA and said we would try to meet up there. Whatever day works for everyone so exciting...we should all get together!

    I, too, will be at Houston and my quilt was selected, but my partner isn't able to come to the show. Unfortunately I've signed up for a class Friday morning and won't be able to meet others then. I do plan on finding the IMQE quilts Wednesday evening at the preview, say around 7 PM.

    fitness.jrbs Oh I am so envious of you all, spending so much time at Houston, meeting up with other IMQE participants and seeing all the wonderful quilts. You should all get together after class on Friday and compare notes since so many of you are doing classes that day. Maybe you will even find yourself in a class with another IMQE participant!!!!!! Looking forward to the photos!

    Post pictures of them both, so long as your partner is happy for you to do that. That is what other people have been doing.

    Should we post the mini that we made or the one we received?

  • Pam_Gantz 2017 International Miniature Quilt Exchange

    I will also be at Houston. Could all of us be there at the exhibit of the quilts at 10:30 a.m. on Friday? My name is Pam Gantz and I would love to meet anyone else who is there. I can’t wait to see the quilts that were chosen. My partner and I weren’t but we so enjoyed the process.

    fitness.jrbs It would be wonderful if you manage a get-together to take a photo of you all standing in front of some of the IMQE quilts. Have a wonderful trip, you lucky things.

    I am coming from Melbourne, Australia and would love to meet up with other IMQE participants. This is my first trip to Houston (was going to call it "once in a lifetime" but hopefully will come again).

    fitness.jrbs Have a wonderful trip tonitwist. Green with envy. I went to Houston in 2010 (from NZ) when a friend of mine won a prize, and we went for her to collect it. What an experience, we said it was the trip of a lifetime, but I can't wait to go again, but not this year, despite being a finalist. I have 2 friends going who have promised to take photos for me.

    Are there any plans for a get together of members attending Quilt Festival?

    1junebug I will be in Houston. Yes, I want to meet by the exhibit. I'm coming from Oklahoma on Wed and will leave late Sat. I am 1junebug in the contest. Paula (NZ) and I were not finalists but I want to see all that were chosen.

 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.
