    I have been partnered with a lady from Texas who emailled me and I emailled her back but nothing since. So I'm not sure if we are still participating. I haven't started my quilt yet - but have some ideas.

    twiglet That's difficult, I should keep trying with the email. Summers a very busy time for a lot of people so we've been a bit slow too. You can Message Wendy (grandedesign) as I believe a few people have this happen. What about using the forum messaging to contact her.

    Have now finished my quilts & ready for the label & hanging sleeve do we just do the normal 4'' sleeve & what do we put on the label.I've searched but can't see the answer to this anywhere .

    grandedesign Great Questions - certainly include a label on the back No sleeve is needed as the miniature quilts will be mounted on a back drop. You may want to talk to your partner and see how they (and you) will want to display the quilts. I put a small 3/4" sleeve on my miniatures and use a wooden 1/4" dowel with connectors on each end to hang my minis. I will post pictures next week to give you a visual of what i am referring to. Cheers Wendy

    This is my first exchange and I'm excited to get paired up soon!
    Any suggestions for us newbies??

    fitness.jrbs Welcome from New Zealand. Suggestions - read through the posts as some useful questions are answered. Most important - have fun, and don't stress if you have never made a mini quilt before. It is much easier to handle than a queen size quilt!!!!

    I'm so having fun with this. My partner is from Canada and I think I'll be able to meet her in my state this winter! Really looking forward to this. I'm still designing my quilt....well, actually, I think I've decided, I'm just looking at fabrics. This is fun!

    gitteroger I have looked for that also without luck

    Am in New Zealand for the WOW evening tonight. Look forward to hearing from you next week.

    fitness.jrbs Oh you lucky, lucky thing. I'm green with envy. If I had a bucket list, that would be top of it! I've been to the WOW museum in Nelson a couple of times, but not yet to the actual show. Have a wonderful evening. How long are you in NZ for? National Symposium in Christchurch is in less than 2 weeks time.

    I joined the group but may have missed my acceptance email. Who would have sent the email so I can search for it. Thank you very much. I do not want to miss this opportunity.

    grandedesign Ednajay - OMG - let me get you the letter - I somehow missed you - I am so sorry... Thanks Lotti - you are right - we have a lot of things going on! Cheers Wendy

    Another new participant here! I'm an American who lives in France, so I guess that makes me an international member? This is my first exchange and I can't wait to get started!!

    fitness.jrbs I have made several wall-hangings using the Dutch reproduction prints, they are wonderful to work with. A friend brought some back from the Netherlands for the first one, and I bought more at the Houston Festival of Quilts a few years ago. I don't know if I will ever get to their shop, I live on the other side of the world in New Zealand.

    I just hit join group and am so excited about a foreign partner. While late to the table it seems a workable timeframe. Hope to get matched up,

    hi. I was partnered with a lovely lady from Texas, but I haven't heard from her in ages. I have tried emailing a few times, but no joy. Do you think I could be partnered with someone else, or do you think I should persevere?

    Pammo Yes, that was my thought too - I hope she is ok, as is her family.

 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.
