Jen’s 100 Good Wishes quilt!!

Jen’s 100 Good Wishes quilt!!

What is a 100 Good Wishes quilt?  After searching, this is what I came across.   “A custom that originated in China, the “100 Wishes Quilt” or Bai Jia Bei, was originally created by having friends each contribute a quilt square as a show of love for the new child.”

Jen and her husband adopted their daughter from China in 2012, and she has a special birthday coming up...8!  She wanted to have this quilt quilted and ready to give to her in November when she gets baptized. 


Each of these fabric squares were sent to Jen to add to this quilt from family and friends.   


It reminds me of a postage stamp quilt I made years ago.  One of them even came with a cute button sewn in the middle.  I did remove it to quilt the quilt, and sewed it back on afterwards.  


Some of the squares even have sweet hand drawn pictures.   


I decided to quilt Soho on it by Sarah Ann Myers and it’s available at  https://www.urbanelementz.com/soho.html

I also used a white 30 Tex A&E Perma Core thread, and 8020 cotton/poly blend batting. 


Look at that minky and quilting!!!  This is why I love quilting minky that is solid.  The quilting texture is always amazing when the minky is solid.   


I hope Jen’s daughter feels extra loved by her 100 Good Wishes!
