International Miniature Quilt Exchange

Crossing borders and cultures with quilts around the globe.

The purpose of the International Miniature Quilt Exchange, IMQE, is to promote quilting across borders and cultures. The project allows two-member teams to communicate and connect with each other.


Entries will be accepted until April 9, 2018 for the IMQE Exhibition. 

The quilts selected will be exhibited at the Fall International Quilt Festival in Houston 2018 as well as Quilt Festival in Chicago in 2019. The exhibit will also travel to a few other venues.

Teams that are selected for the traveling exhibition will be notified by May 1, 2018. Selected quilts will then be sent to The Quilt Show to be prepared for exhibition. After the touring exhibition in 2019, the exhibition quilts will be sent by The Quilt Show to their final recipients.

Those teams whose quilts are not selected for the traveling exhibition will be notified so they can complete the exchange with their teammate.
