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.
Then the hop came up and I knew I would finish the block in to a pillow with ruffles around the outer edge and give it to Charlotte!
Funny thing... tonight I was upstairs stuffing the pillow getting it ready to photograph. 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?
