To welcome and celebrate a new life, there is a tradition in the northern part of China to make a Bai Jia Bei, or 100 Good Wishes Quilt. It is a custom to invite 100 people to contribute a single square patch of cloth. The 100 patches are sewn together into a quilt that contains the luck, energy, and good wishes from all the families and friends who contributed a piece of fabric. The quilt is then passed down from generation to generation.
These are my quilt squares and wishes that I sent for my November DTC 100 Good Wishes fabric swap. ( My group decided to send 2 fabric squares along with our wishes ). If anyone would like to send me a wish and fabric square for Abby's quilt please e-mail me for the details!
