Hello Everyone - Just a note to let you know we now have 216 Active Partners! I also have 5 quilters waiting to get International partners. We have 4 Partners that share Quilting as a common language and thanks to Google Translate they are doing great. We have 22 Countries participating with Italy in the lead with 49 Quilters, followed by the UK with 38 and Canada with 37, Germany has 33 and Australia is at 23. We have 45 States represented and are still hoping to get representation from Alaska, Hawaii, North Dakota, Rhode Island and West Virginia. Pass the word ~ share with your Quilting Friends the fun you are having with your IMQE partner! Remember our goal is to get 300 partners!

This is something you and your partner can decide on. We are interested in the Experience :) The quilts that are selected for the show will be those that best represent the experience the quilters shared. It is not intended to be a contest or judged based on quilting skills. We recognize quilters of all levels are a part of the International Miniature Quilt Exchange. Hope that answers your question!

Cheers Wendy

Is it mandatory or optional to submit your quilt in January if you participate in IMQE?

Hi Lorchen
Sally Collins has written a very good book called Small Scale Quiltmaking. I look at the photos and feel inadequate. :)
Regards
Sue

So true..... we have some very clever quilters out there in quiltland who don't own shops and never submit their quilts to shows. So you might be one of these and she is worried about you. All I know is that I'm looking forward to my partners quilt (who is much younger than me (so there is another worry)). To go up on my wall, so that every time I see it, it will remind me that somebody else is sitting in front of a sewing machine or worrying about colour choices.

But Terriann that doesn't mean she'll find it easy working small. Bet she's really pleased she can make you a quilt in her style instead of concentrating on the shop and working for customers and probably worrying you'll have high expectations of her because of the shop and longarm. Bet she's interesting to chat to. :)

This is going to be so much fun but have to admit I am intimidated by my partners skills. She own's her own quilt shop and quilts beautifully on her long arm
