Some of the stitches I'll feature on this blog are quilting stitches. I want to put the pictures in a gallery when I learn how to do so. Thought I'd start with 2002: this quilt is the first stitched thing I finished last year, on 02/02/02, my birthday. This is a Bai Jia Bei, or 100 Good Wishes, quilt for my daughter Caroline. Almost all of the fabrics were contributed by friends, family, and other waiting parents whose adoption dossiers arrived in China in March 2001. I called this quilt Marcher Wishes and More; it was the second such quilt I made for Caroline, the first having been completed in April 2001 (in great part while watching my Duke Blue Devils advance to the NCAA championship!).
