I am also a PhD student in the Department of Museum Studies at the University of Leicester in the UK. I'm doing my degree by distance learning and once a year I get to travel to England to check in with my adviser (hopefully to have her say, "well done!"). The focus of my research is One Hundred Good Wishes Quilts, quilts made to welcome adopted children from China into their new families.

I've had the pleasure of emailing with many OHGWQ makers and will be doing interviews with more quilt makers over the next several months. People like Jen and Jason Kainz have been so gracious about telling me their quilt story and I hope to gather many more stories as my project continues. Please get in touch if you have a story to share!
