IMQE...Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening

I found out about the IMQE when I attended one of Ricky Tims “days” on this side of the “pond” and I have been twinned with a quilter from Florida. Since we are both quilters one would expect to find common likes etc. but it has been quite uncanny…..we are both multi-crafters, we have both made teddy bears, we like the same colours, we have both made “Gypsy wife quilts” …just last week…..while sharing photos we discovered that we had both used the same, rather unusual fabric in family quilts! I could continue!

 

We write often…..and very early on we decided that we wanted to link our little quilts in some way. We narrowed our ideas down to 2…..but we couldn’t decide between them. Finally we went with both. We have been swapping blocks on a sewing/quilting theme…..4 so far, each time making identical blocks…one to send and one to keep! For the IMQE we took as our theme…..what turned out to be both  our favourite poem….Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening by Robert Frost.

 

The purpose of the International Miniature Quilt Exchange is to promote quilting across borders and cultures”……in our case it has done so much more…..we have become friends and this friendship will last way beyond the scope of this project. We have one final decision……will we meet? Maybe….I hope
