100 Good Wishes Quilts research presention

Marin Hanson, Curator of Exhibitions at the International Quilt Study Center and Museum at the University of Nebraska's presentation at the Textile Society of America's Symposium in Sept 2012 is now published in their proceedings. This is the paper that she wrote prior to my  interview and prior to her research trip to China recently. You can go to University of Nebraska's Digital Commons to read it if you are interested.

Marin is the person who interviewed me this past spring for her 100 Good Wishes Quilt history and origins research and who I've been following ever since to see what she has learned. I posted about her proof that indeed 100 Good Wishes Quilts are a true Chinese tradition here.

Of course, I find this information very interesting especially since OHGWQs mean so much to me. At some point her final research paper will be published, the one that I was interviewed for along with many other adoptive parents, and I promise to share the link with you when it comes out.

This information was so interesting to read. Thank you for sharing it. I thought it was interesting that the robe was made with hexagons.
