100 Good Wishes

Earlier this week, the International Quilt Study Center hosted a lecture by Marin Hanson about the tradition of giving a 100 Good Wishes quilt to a Chinese adoptee. Tradition holds that in Northern China, 100 people (or many people) are invited to contribute cloth and a good wish for a new child.

Years ago, Katie and I assembled the quilt for Dayna. My mom and I are still in process to put all of the good wishes into a special book for her.

It was a fun treat for the speaker to see Dayna come in with her quilt to show. And it was especially fun to watch Dayna shine as she talked about her own experience and quilt. What a fun way to spend the afternoon and enjoy 3 generations and the love of quilts.
