Mia's 100+ Good Wishes Quilt

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 friends and family to contribute a piece of fabric along with a wish. The pieces of fabric are then sewn together to make a quilt. If you are interested in participating in Mia's 100 Good Wishes Quilt please do the following.

1. Chose any 100% cotton fabric that you like. It can be fabric from a piece of clothing or a fabric store. Any fabric that is special or unique to you would be perfect! Cut the fabric into an 8X8 square and include 1 small swatch (1X1) or (2X2) to be attached to the blessing, scripture, or wishes card.

2. On a 5X7 card stock card please include a blessing, scripture, or wish for Mia. Also attach the small swatch of fabric to the card. All wishes collected will be placed in a scrapbook for Mia to look at for years to come. She will be able to identify your fabric in her quilt by the fabric swatch included on your wishes card.

Thank you so much for helping us to create this wonderful treasure for our daughter. If you would like to participate and need our address please e-mail me at
