Bai Jia Bei: "100 Good Wishes Quilt"
Several months ago, many of you received an email requesting your participation in our Bai Jia Bei, "100 Good Wishes Quilt". Several have asked if it's too late to send your fabric. To that I say -- OF COURSE IT'S NOT TOO LATE! Send it our way! We have absolutely loved getting the fabrics and well wishes, stories, poems, etc. in our mailbox. Who knew that fabric had such interesting stories to tell! Some fabrics have travelled as far as the streets of Cairo, Egypt and others from Ghana, Africa. Some formerly lived lives as a clown outfit, a baby's crib sheet, or a daughter's favorite shirt. Several have been loved on, as they were the receiving blankets of newborn babies. Still others represent the values, dreams, hopes, and gratitude of its purchasers. I've shed tears reading their wonderful tales. In spring or summer, I hope to begin piecing them together. Please send them by April 1st, if you haven't yet and would like to do so. Everyone's counts as we'd like to have 100 total pieces. We are honored that your spirit will be woven into the fabric of our Elyza's Bai Jia Bei. Blessings!
