    I just reread the overview directions and see that the sates for Houston in 2018 are noted as October 26 - November 4. However quilts.com states that the 2018 dates for Festival are later at November 8 - 11, 2018. Please clarify.

    grandedesign TheQuiltShow.com will be sure to share where the quilts are on exhibit!

    Hello I'm a new member of this side, learning about this project only a few minutes ago. Now I'm interesting what's going on and how it works.
    Hello from Germany to everyone

    Sigab Hello Ingrid, welcome to the journey through the Miniature Quilt Exchange! My partner is a smart lady and I can say, I've found a new friend with TQS. I'm also from Germany living nearby Frankfurt. Where do you live?

    lotti hello eileen - yup - life is back under control again - well at least partways... i have one sewing machine up and plugged in - hoping to unpack the baby quilt stuff and do a little sewing this week. i also organized some fabrics that i believe might be turned into an "exchangeable" miniature quilt ... by the way, you can always find me at lotti.deringer@schiller.ch

    How do I ask a question about the 1/4" above the surface without my partner seeing it? Can I "private message" grandedesign?

  • passionforcolor 2017 International Miniature Quilt Exchange

    Can I private message grandedesign and how? I am not a techie. I am a quilter... Thanks.

    sarah21 Passionforcolor just click on grandeddesign name and you should be able to open her page. Then click on comment. Then leave a comment for grandedesign she will contact you at her convenience.

    I have a question related to the 1/4 " above the background. How do I ask/post a question without my partner see the issue I am addressing (and thereby spoiling the surprise)?

    sarah21 What I think this means passionforcolor is any embellishments should not exceed above 1/4 of an inch from the background of your quilt. I too am aware of this restriction but are trying to adhere to it! If I am correct. But I suggest you ask grandedesign more on this. I too will be interested in your result. Hope this helps.

    Hi, my name is Marilyn and I am very excited about this project. I've decided I like the idea of small quilts. Actually the smaller the better. I am now doing mini quilts. Can't wait to get my partner.

    Hi, just joined from the UK and looking forward to meeting my team partner. I hope to visit the Houston Festival in 2018 and how fantastic to possibly , maybe, in my dreams, have a quilt hanging there.

    What is the best way to send our quilts to our partners and for them to send them to the U.S. to avoid having to pay customs charges?

    fitness.jrbs A very belated reply from New Zealand. Whenever I send anything to family in England I always tick the "gift"box on the Customs Declaration, am vague with the contents of the parcel and give it a low value. Never had a problem with Customs in 40+ years!

    Sandimaha, I was just checking the rules, and any surface embellishment shouldn't be raised more than 1/4", so watch out with your buttons .

    Do we need to add a sleeve on the back of our miniature quilt? In case we were one of the lucky quilt selected for Houston. If yes which size? Thanks for your answer

    grandedesign Hi - no sleeve is required - they will be carefully pinned to a backdrop. cheers Wendy

 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.
