FABRIC TUESDAY #22 Seriously!

Hello again! Welcome back to fabric Tuesday!  

Megan told you about her brush with the stars. She forgot to tell you the best story.  About 7 years back, our parents lived in southern California. Megan and I were taking a little Hollywood vacation. It was a funny funny night. We ate pizza on a sidewalk 10 feet from a homeless man as we watched an ambulance take someone out from a club. We were hoping it was a star.  Then we thought we would go check out the Ivy because celebrities are always there.  I was infront of Megan and suddenly turned around and freaked out. I was giggling, and crossing my legs so I wouldn't pee (give me a break, I had just had a baby.) Megan was dying because I couldn't compose myself to talk. Finally I uttered the words " It is Dawson Leery"  from Dawson's creek. And yes, I did actually say Dawson Leery, and  not his real name James Vanderbeek.  Megan hurried past me to get a look. It was really funny and awesome!

 Okay, back to some relevant info. This is the quilt I made with Aunt Bea's fabric pile from a few weeks ago.

 I made it for my niece Hannah. (I hope the other kids don't expect one, because I have 35 nieces and nephews. (on this side alone!)  She loves green and blues. And I think she loved this quilt.
I did an all over stipple I was happy with. It is the largest quilt I have quilted on my own.  I am really happy with it.

The sad news is Aunt Bea's fabric shop is closing.  The good news is 


edited to add: Megan posted on Fresh Poppy Design, a sneak peek at her kitchen re-do and one of our new patterns, so make sure to take a peek!

Most everyone does this, but please actually mention that you are linking up to Quilt Story in your post...even if you have the button on the sidebar there needs to be mention in the post :)  We've just seen a couple where we can't see any button or link to us and then we scroll way way down and there's the button...we want to make sure everyone knows so everyone can play!  Thank you!!

And how about we each take time to comment on the link just before yours, that's easy enough right? We'd love for this to be a linky party where everyone gets comments, so if you take the time to look, take a second to leave a comment!

What have you been up to?!?
