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.
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."
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.
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?
Is anyone planning on meeting on Thursday at the exhibit? my flight was delayed and I won't get in until late Wednesday and have class on Friday morning. - feeling excited
Hello - We are getting ready for the IMQE Exhibition in Houston - Be sure and stop by and see the fabulous quilts! There will be a TQS Member meet and greet daily at the IMQE exhibit - be sure and stop by!
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!
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.
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?
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.
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).
Are there any plans for a get together of members attending Quilt Festival?
You can share photos of your quilts; The Quilt Show cannot provide a repository for the pictures of IMQE quilts or share the selected quilts until the Exhibit premiers in November. Participants in IMQE can share.
You are quite right TammiD, I know as I am one of the testers. So the entry is being tweeked so it is as user friendly as possible, and then will be made available. I think Wendy hopes it will happen this week, so no panic sueandsew. I think an email will go out to all participants once it is available.
