Would someone please clarify for me; are these quilts to be an original design or can someone's pattern be adapted? Thanks.
I am looking forward to having a partner.
Hello, I'm also from Germany nearby Frankfurt. It is my first time in a quilting group. I think it would be a great time to find new patchwork friends. Now I'm waiting to be paired with a quilter! I wish everybody an excellent time with sewing and sharing!
Hello, I'm from Germany and I have been paired with a quilter from Minnesota. We have a lot of things in common, like books, favourite colour green, gardening - and of course patchwork. It's interesting to write to each other and to get Information about daily life, how to celebrate special days and so on. This is a great project to come closer together in the world - thanks to The QuiltShow team
Hello, I´m a quilter from Germany and have been paired with my Partner Rita and send an email to her just now. I´m waiting hearing back from her soon.
Good afternoon from Alabama, Roll Tide Country. I have been paired with what seems to me to be an amazing woman, from two countries. She was born and raised in Germany and is now fand or a while been living Canada. Looks like I got a two for one with my partner, Canada and Germany. We have been conversing via e-mail and learning and becoming acquainted with each other. So happy, happy, happy.
I just got a notice that I have been paired with another quilter! Woohoo!!
Have been paired with my partner - shopping emails just now. So looking forward to progressing
I think I joined twice, was trying to double check my membership. I have not received a matchup yet either and was wondering if there is a master list of pair ups? I worry that I'll miss an email. I never received the welcome email after signup that I should have gotten so was kinda worried. I am getting the posts from everyone though. Can't wait!
I haven't been paired with anyone yet, but I did just join this week. I do so hope I am paired with someone outside the USA. It's nice to connect with quilters around the world.
Wendy did a great job pairing me, from New Zealand, with Sue in Washington State - we just have the Pacific Ocean between us!! We have both been quilting for decades, both teach, both been Presidents of our local quilt guilds, make small quilts and love curves and circles in quilts. So any Kiwis out there reading this, come and join in the fun! There were only 3 of us at last count.
My partner and I are on our way to starting our miniature quilts. Sue and I have passed emails back and forth getting to know each other. It has been a lot of fun so far. I am from Australia so if there is anyone here thinking about joining, jump on board. I will hopefully be able to meet my partner in San Diego next month as my son just so happens to live there.
To all the Italian quilters. If you are near or in Spoleto, our grandson will be singing Don Ottavio in Don Giovanni on June 30 and July 2. If you go to the performance give Brian Michael Moore a hug from Grandma Moore. Thanks.
My partner and I have exchanged several emails. We have many similarities and differences, the similarities being many. We have exchanged photos--her quilts are exquisite. I enjoyed hearing from her! I sincerely hope to meet physically meet her one day soon! I am enjoying working on my miniature for her! It is a whole new experience working so small!
I have emailed my partner a number of times. We have found many similarities in tastes and preferences! Carol is a member of a FaceBook group of U.K. Quilters and she invited me to join that group. It has been great fun to see what quilters in the U.K. are doing! That group is doing a mini swap as well and it has been fun to watch. Carol is a quilting teacher and much more accomplished than I
Tell me a story Many of you have been exchanging email with your partner for 3 months and some for 3 days. Tell me what has surprised you. Just send a quick email to thequiltshowIMQE@gmail.com and "tell me a story". We want to reach our goal of 300 partners, we're now at 238, only 62 more to go. Your story might just be the one to inspire a quilter to join IMQE and help us reach our goal.
Hello everyone! Be sure to check your email inbox (or possibly SPAM) and look for a message from me thequiltshowIMQE@gmail. I am waiting to hear back from about 20 new IMQE members so I can add new partners - WooHoo!! Still waiting to hear from quilters in Alaska, Hawaii, North Dakota, Rhode Island and West Virginia.
Yayyyy! Just been notified that I have been paired and sent her an email. Happy, Happy, Happy.
I just joined the group and am looking forward to being paired with someone from another country. Can't wait to get started.
I have been matched as well. I am in a very rural area in north central Ontario and my match is in bustling Los Angeles (outside of) Sandi, I used to live in Edmonton. and Lorchen, I was born in England and my aunt lived in Nottingham.
The short answer to that is any time. My partner and I are getting to know each other. We've decided on how we're going to proceed and I have started to stitch my miniature. I was so excited that I couldn't wait and design ideas were forming. It'll be ready way before the deadline in January and the hardest thing will be to not share it with my partner. Relax and enjoy the process.
I have spent a little time researching miniature quilts. Most of what I have seen are traditional. I am not fond of making the same block over and over so I know I don't want to make them even smaller. So how do I translate miniature to a landscape quilt or some other art type quilt? And I love to embellish. I guess I am looking for tiny buttons and beads! Any comments?
