I have been mached too!!!!
No, just saying "hello!"
Hello!! Are we matched each other?
I have been mached too!!!!
One half of team 290 here in New Zealand - Wendy did a great job teaming me up with Susan from Washington state, so much in common it is almost uncanny! Just got the Pacific Ocean between us.
Wendy Thomas......you can get a better idea as to what TQS has in mind as acceptable, by clicking "Photos" up in the blue lettered horizontal column above. There is a camel quilt with tassels and buttons, and a Russian looking one with lots of metallic thread. So, as I understand this, for us artsy people, we will just make a small art quilt.
I took the requirement to mean..not just one block in the finished size but that the finished quilt should look like a quilt...either in blocks or whatever you might make in a regular size quilt.
Question about mini quilt....I am reading that the mini quilts are to be miniature replicas of a larger quilt, so that being said, there is no creativity on making something from the imagination. In other words we can't make like a creative landscape scene with embellishments and thread painting? Can someone please explain this to me...Thanks, Wendy T
We're linking Missouri with England for Team 186, and I'm really excited about going beyond my usual quilting activities. Sue and I have exchanged...
Liliana from Italy and I ( from Connecticut) are off to a good start. We have exchanged emails using Bing Translater and we are now discussing a theme.

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?
Once you have 'joined' here (which you have) your email is in the system. Wendy (grandedesign) will email you to confirm your location. It's not an automated process - and I want to reiterate as often as I can, that all paring is first come first served - and we know there will be more US quilters than internationals. Stay tuned - we will continue to urge as many internationals to participate as possible to get as many pairs as we can.
