International Miniature Quilt Exchange (IMQE) – Crossing borders and cultures with Quilts around the Globe.  Teams forming NOW through December 31, 2017 The purpose of the International Miniature Quilt Exchange is to promote quilting across borders and cultures. The exchange allows team members to communicate and connect with each other. The team will then have the opportunity to participate in a juried exhibition which will premiere at the International Quilt Festival in Houston during the Fall of 2018.To participate, you must be either a free basic member of TheQuiltShow.com (TQS) or a Star member of TheQuiltshow.com. Willing participants must then join the International Miniature Quilt Exchange Group on the TQS website. Each exchange team is a two-person team. Each team will have a number associated with their team.Quilters from the USA will be paired with an International Quilter on a first come, first served basis (notification by email). It is probable that there will be more USA Quilters than there will be International Quilters. Teams will continue to be established now through December 31, 2017
