"I have found that all ugly things are made by those who strive to make something beautiful, and that all beautiful things are made by those who strive to make something useful." Oscar Wilde

This is a quilt that I just finished for my brother, Sam and his wife, Miyuki. Miyuki is from Japan. Several months ago I called her and asked her what her favorite color was. I think the quilt turned out very nicely. I hope they like it. It has a heavy dark blue flannel backing which I found very soft and warm as I had the quilt spread out over me as I was finishing the binding.
When I fly out to Missouri this week, where they live, I will be taking it with me. I’ve stuffed it into a carryon bag. And unless Sam and Miyuki look at this blog they won’t know it’s coming.
