Our Chief Editor, Lilo Bowman, asks Ricky Tims to explain the International Miniature Quilt Exchange (IMQE). The Exhange began in 2017 when particpants were assigned partners. In 2018, each team was asked to submit their stories and pictures of their quilts to be included in the IMQE Exhibition. Be sure to join us each coming Sunday when we profile the quilts in the show along with their stories. To see the IMQE Exhibition in person, they will be featured next at the International Quilt Festival in Chicago, IL from March 28-30, 2019. The response to the exchange and exhibition has been terrific and TQS will host a second exchange in the future.

ATTENTION IMQE MEMBERS; Our viewers want to see all of your quilts and hear your stories. Please put your quilt and a picture of your story up in the Quilt Gallery. Be sure to name it as follows: "IMQE 2018 - the actual quilt name". That way viewers can search in the gallery by typing IMQE 2018 and find the quilts.
