(Yes 2 Quilts)

Thank you to all who contributed! I know alot of time was spent doing this and keeping it a secret from me. These guilts will always be cherished. The girls have really enjoyed looking at all the different sguares telling us what each is. It means so much to us that our family and friends did this for us.

They turned out very beautiful!
PS MOM I Know you will want to add to this, but you have been so busy lately.

In some parts of Northern China, when a baby is born, family and friends of the child donate fabric scraps from old clothing to the child's mother. She then makes a quilt for the baby from the scraps. It is said that the luck, energy and good wishes of the people who wore these clothes surrounds the child when she is wrapped in the quilt. The quilt is then passed down from generation to generation. This is the tradition upon which the 100 Good Wishes Quilt is modeled
