Sophie's Quilt

Following with tradition....we have been gathering quilt squares to make Sophie's Bai Jia Bei or "100 Good Wishes Quilt"...which is used to welcome or celebrate a new life. Ella's squares are all sewn together now and ready to be quilted. I will post pictures when it is complete. Please help us in collecting squares for Sophie! It is said that the luck, energy, and good wishes of the people who send the cloths will now surround the child when wrapped in her/his new quilt. Please send a square of 100% cotton fabric(your choice)to us. The square should be 8 in. by 8 in. Please also include a wish for Sophie which can be a favorite saying, bible, verse or your own words. The wish can be on cardstock, or an index card and should have your names included on it. Please attach a small piece of the fabric to the wish card, so we know which quilt square is from you. See examples below of some squares we have received from friends. For our mailing address....please e-mail hispurpose@rcn.com
