mandala-1
Name of Maker: Suellen Glover

This pattern is made of 5 wedges, each with 3 pieces - mirror image top pieces and a point.  I did not want to bind a 10 sided quilt, and thought it would be easier for the recipient to hang as a square.  I added an extension to each of the 10 top pieces and the squared it off.

"G"

Name of Maker: Susan L. Jaenen-Griffin

“G” is a quilt from the sub-series “Lemon- Aide with a Twist of Lyme” part of the “52 Yarns of Lyme – The Lyme Dis-Ease Series by Susan L. Jaenen-Griffin.  Included in the sub-series are 26 quilts that utilize over 75 different techniques.  I created these quilts while attempting to relearn the techniques that I had lost because of Lyme.    Each quilt refers to myriad of treatments that I was undergoing at the time I created them.  The following is the artist statement for the quilt “G”

 

“Garlic (Allium sativum), Ginger (Zingiber officinale), Glutathione”

Garlic is considered to be nutritionally complete with minerals, trace elements, provitamins, fiber and essential oils.  Its anti-bacterial properties cover a wide range of gram positive and negative bacteria.  It is also a strong natural antibiotic, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial and anti-spasmodic. The rhizome of Zingiber officinale has pain relieving properties, digestive benefits and enzyme actions.  It is anti-inflammatory, anti-parasitic, antimicrobial, anti-arthritic and an antioxidant.  It has the potential to prevent Lyme carditis.   The antioxidant action of glutathione removes the endotoxins secreted by spirochetes.

imqe-stopping-by-woods-on-a-snowy-evening
Name of Maker: Rosemary Rosenfeld

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
