Ruffled Pillow For Dear Charlotte

This post is centered all around my sister Charlotte.  Charlotte loves to read, has tons of flower gardens.. I think she and my hubby are in a competition to see who can have the most flowers... and she has a heart as big as Texas!
I entered a crazy quilt round robin a few months back and the theme was Kate Greenaway. I googled images from her works and found this woman sitting under a tree reading.  Just perfect for my block.  It was at that time I decided to give the block to my sister once it was completed. I have Carol, Diane, Judy, and Nark to thank for such a gorgeous gift to give to my sister.

Funny thing... tonight I was upstairs stuffing the pillow getting it ready to ship to her.  I called Charlotte to chat while I was working. She could hear the beads clanging on the table as I worked the stuffing in and around the inside of the pillow.  She asked what I was doing.  I told her that I was stuffing a pillow.  Well, she wanted to know why I was stuffing a pillow and I told her that I had made a pillow for her.  She said "yeah, right"... you aren't making me a pillow.

After 2 or 3 counters back and forth of "yes, I am" and "no, you aren't", I gave up and said ok, I'm not.  It is now in a box ready to head for Alabama tomorrow morning.  Won't she be surprised!! haha!

Do you think she will love it?
