    Maybe I have just been really lucky with my partner in Florida....but I feel as though I have made another good friend and I know she feels the same. We still email regularly and swap ideas as well blocks etc. I am really sorry that everyone has not had such a rewarding experience! Sewingro

    This was a very disappointing experience. This forum was very difficult to navigate but I persevered and completed a quilt and officially entered the contest. It was not chosen for exhibit so I mailed it to my partner who has acknowledged receipt as of mid June. I have received nothing.

    willykane I entered this exchange with the typical "New Yorker" skepticism thinking "Am I wasting my time?" I have to say the navigation was tricky. There were many people unsure of next steps and where to get answers. I also became disappointed with the many postings of negative feelings. BUT I kept going and emailed my partner directly when I had any questions regarding her participation but also to reassure her of my intention to follow through. Our correspondence was all I needed to know all was good. We were not chosen for the competition but that did not deter us. My partner sent the quilt from Australia to me FIRST while my quilt was in a local show. I received hers in the mail mid-June. I have since mailed mine to her and emailed her to let her know it was on its way.
    In the end it comes down to communication and faith, which there is less of in today's electronics-driven world. It is a shame that your experience was not what it should have been. I hope these messages help.

    You may have seen posts about the fire in La Vita, Colorado. I spoke with Ricky and Justin this morning, they are fine but do not have any update on their home. When they were evacuated early last week, one of the first things they removed from their residence was the IMQE quilts. The IMQE Quilts are safe and the organizers of the Houston Quilt show will have them next week. Thank you!

    BarbCA Wendy - Thanks for the update! Barb

    If anyone wants to chat you can join the facebook group 'friends of IMQE'. Send Twiglet or Lorchen a message and we'll add you

    sarah21 How can I be added to the friends of IMQE on facebook please. I would like to be considered for the facebook group despite withdrawing. I was having a terrible time making my mind up to whether I should withdraw, and as it turns out, I had a major reason in the end. Hours after withdrawing my brother who I loved dearly suddenly died. My distress at this time was so great it flatten me, I was in no state to continue to sew or do anything I loved. The agony of those months is still effecting my life today. I would love to, if possible see other members of the group work and even perhaps post pictures of my quilt despite it still not being finished. Perhaps one day I will get back to it. sarah21

    Patrizia and I have exchanged our quilts. The one I received is beautiful. It is 19 inches square and eye catching. Thank you, Wendy and all your cohorts for. Wonderful experience and for allowing me to make a new friend, who, while far away in distance is close in my heart.

    If your quilt was NOT selected for the Exhibition - You may certainly share pictures of your quilt - here in the Member Group, on the IMQE Facebook page or in your TQS gallery. I realize not posting the pictures of selected quilts is confusing - due to the agreement we have with the International Quilt Festival that we premier the quilts at the Show in Houston, TX in November.

    khudson Hi. The gallery is under See Quilts in the header.

    Will an administrator please create a folder within Gallery so everyone can upload and for easier viewing? Thanks.

 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.
