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 patch of cloth with a wish for the baby. Part of the patch of cloth goes into the quilt for the baby, and the other part of the cloth can go into a creative memory notebook with the wish for the child. The quilt contains the luck, energy, and good wishes from all the families and friends who contributed a piece of fabric. The quilt is then passed down from generation to generation.

We found out about 100 wishes quilts through friends who adopted a daughter from China. It is a tradition to greet the new baby with a 100 Good Wishes Quilt. Although this is a Chinese tradition, it is a great tradition for any child to be welcomed this way. What a treat to read the good wishes when the child is older to know how much they were wanted!

Click here to see that would work well for a 100 Good Wishes Quilt. We have some new designs available! And click here to see pictures of my trip to!

You can either collect your own 100 Good Wishes fabrics from family and friends. If interested, I have a letter you can modify with your information to send out to your friends/family asking to participate in the project. Or you can participate in fabric swaps to get fabrics and wishes from others adopting from China.  to visit other website which tells more about 100 Good Wishes Quilts. If you are interested in joining a group of other adoptive parents of China wishing to swap fabrics and wishes, click on the following link to join the Yahoo group.

Ladybugs are a sign of good luck in the Chinese adoption community. It is said that if you see ladybugs that good things will happen soon! Because of this, many people like to include fabrics with ladybugs in their 100 Good Wishes Quilts. Original Quilts has a fabric website called where you can shop for ladybug fabrics. 

"An invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet, 
regardless of time, place, or circumstance. 
The thread may stretch or tangle, but will never break."    
--An ancient Chinese belief 

I can make a quilt like any you see here, or if you have another idea in mind, 
I am happy to make it for you.

Note: In August my client heard the most horrible news that her adoption of Isabella would not be going through.  My client asked me what I could do to Isabella's quilt so that it wouldn't be a reminder about this horrible news. She wrote a new poem, and I used ladybug buttons to button this new poem over the other poem. This solution kept the original quilt in tact, but also added another dimension. They say that quilts always tell a story, and this quilt has quite a story to tell. The additional poem was added September 2002.

This quilt was made out of white flannel for the sashing, back and border, and a soft chenille for the border fabric. Click on the second photo to see the chenille up close - it is very cute! This is the sashing quilt in the twin size. It measures approximately 70" x 98". This quilt was completed July 2002.

The second photo shows a close up of the embroidery on the front of the quilt, and the bottom photo shows the quilting between each of the squares. The chenille has little flowers, so we quilted flowers throughout the quilt to carry that theme throughout.

"I really wanted to participate in a 100 Good Wishes Quilt project, but I had no idea how to make a quilt. Pam alleviated all the anxiety I was feeling and helped me to get all the materials I needed. The results surpassed anything I'd imagined. It is truly the most beautiful quilt I've ever seen."   -- Barbara (New Jersey)

(Pinwheel)
This is Lydia's 100 Good Wishes Quilt using the pinwheel pattern. Lydia's mom picked out the cute border fabric, then we selected coordinating fabrics for the background, pinwheels and borders.  If you double click on the picture it will enlarge and show a closer photo so you can see the detail work in the quilting. Lydia's mom wanted the traditional red thread used for the quilting, so we quilted red hearts throughout the quilt to signify that all the wishes are surrounded by love. This quilt measures 66" x 80".

The Quilting Cottage did the long arm quilting on this quilt. The photo below shows the detail of the quilting. The lower right corner of the quilt is showing, the blue fabric is the back of the quilt, and you can see the quilting of the hearts on that fabric. This quilt was completed October 2001.

"I am very pleased with everything about the quilt and can't begin to tell you how much I LOVE IT!!!  I am so glad that you did the quilt for me - your ideas, expertise, skills, and thoughts have made the quilt stunning and something Lydia will always treasure."  -- Sylvia  

(Pinwheel)
This is the pinwheel quilt pattern also. My client wanted the ladybugs to be a theme throughout the quilt. We appliquéd ladybugs onto the background of the quilt, making it look like the ladybugs in the border were walking throughout the quilt.  This quilt measures 66" x 80".

This quilt was completed September 2001.

"It is more beautiful than I ever could have imagined!" -- Cindy

Juliana's Good Wishes Book

The first photo shows the Good Wishes book cover made to match her 100 Good Wishes Quilt. Juliana's mom hand pieced the quilt (the 3rd photo) and I machine quilted and finished the binding work on the quilt. I took the remaining scraps from the quilt and made the good wishes book cover to hold all the treasured wishes she's collected.

Completed February 2003.

"Thank you very much Pam. You area lifesaver!" -- Heidi (Minnesota) 

Lydia's Good Wishes Book

This is Lydia's 100 Good Wishes Book. We brought the border print along the lower portion of the book, embroidered the label for the book and included scraps of fabric from the quilt on the cover.

Hallie's Good Wishes Book

This is Hallie's 100 Good Wishes Book. Some of the fabrics were sent after the quilt was completed, so they were incorporated into the cover of the notebook.

All quilts are different, we can take ideas from quilts you see here on this site, or other quilts you may have seen. The quilts are priced using a formula based on the difficulty of the piecing (design), the finished size, and the type of quilting. This is a general guideline of pricing for your interest. Once we discuss the scope of your project, then we will agree on a price for completion. 

All of these prices are based on the client supplying the fabric for the quilt (front, back, borders, and binding). If the client wishes to have Original Quilts purchase fabric or embellishments, those additional costs will be added to the final invoice.

All money is quoted in United States dollars. Client pays all shipping costs. The prices are for labor only. The client needs to add in the cost for any additional fabrics and batting to complete the quilt.

bullet Pinwheel Quilts: vary based on the number of pinwheel blocks you have in the quilt and the overall finished size of the quilt. As a reference if you use 100 of the Good Wishes fabrics (5 fabrics in each pinwheel - four 5" blocks on the corners and one smaller block in the center) and you have 20 pinwheels, the price is 0 for labor only. You need to select the fabric for the back, binding, borders, the background of the quilt, and the color in the pinwheel. Original Quilts can procure those fabrics for you at a cost plus 25% fee. This quilt measures approx 66" x 80" which is a very large lap quilt - or would be great at the foot of a bed.
bullet Sashing Quilts:  We can design the sashing quilts either square (10 across and 10 down) or we can design it to be a twin size. If 100 blocks are used, the price is 0 for labor only.  You'll need to select the fabric for the back of the quilt, the binding, and the sashing and borders for the quilt. Original Quilts can procure those fabrics for you at a cost plus 25% fee.
bullet Other quilt patterns can be done, however they will need to be priced depending on the difficulty of the pattern and the size of the quilt. 
If there are left over fabrics from the 100 wishes fabrics, we can also make quilted covers for the you keep the wishes in (personalized with the baby's name on it). Notebook covers start at. Or we can also make smaller baby blanks with leftover fabrics - priced according to size.
