Fabric Tuesday!

Happy Fabric Tuesday everyone!
Did you all watch Oprah yesterday?
Let me fill you in.
She has a secret half sister!
{everyone staring blankly at the computer screen}
Okay okay, so none of us knew how many siblings Oprah did or didn't have.
But let me say, this lady found out a few years ago (2007) that she was Oprah's half sister, given up for adoption at birth.  Can you imagine that?!?

Want to know something else?
Heather and I went to see Oprah!!  We actually got tickets to be in her audience a little more than a year ago.  Heather flew into Chicago to meet me for less than 24 hours. leaving her 6 week old baby at home.  Totally worth it.  It was awesome.  She totally looked at us, she kept making eyes at me because I had a question for her...even though I never got to ask it, but that's a whole other story.

Heather and I also saw Bob Barker's head once on a guided tour of Hollywood.
I saw President Bush land on Air Force One.
I saw Joan Rivers in an airport terminal.
AND I saw Wayne, the big brother on the Wonder Years in the airport.  But not to be confused with the time I saw Joan Rivers.  Totally different.

Well if that wasn't a tangent...and for a very smooth transition...
Here's what I made my friend Sara aka SewSara for Christmas! :)

The girl LOVES red, cherries and bright and cheery fabric! I didn't give her specific instructions on it's usage (that's probably what she's thinking!).  I imagine it could be a wall hanging, or table topper...It's probably a 12 inch square in the middle where I appliqued the cherry.  I used scraps from my Spinning Coin Quilt to piece the border and used the same fabulous binding. I have one last little project where I used the rest of my fabric from the Fabric Shoppe that I'll share next week.

I straight line quilted it because it's all I know how to do it's really trendy and fit this piece perfectly!  Here is what Sara made for me.

Without more pointless blabbering...I give you:

Edition 21
Link up a recent craft project that uses fabric...if you're new don't be shy!  This is for everyone.  Click the button to add your link at the bottom and link up a recent blog post where you used fabric to create or enhance something. Below are a few "rules" to play.

Mention us in your post with either a link or make it easy and add the button to your blog sidebar and you won't have to remember each week. ***You can take either our blog or our Fabric Tuesday buttons on the sidebar.***
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!!

You don't have to do this to link up, promise. However if you want to follow us, we follow back :) But please comment telling us you did so and we will hop right on over and make sure we're following too!

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?!?

I got to go to the Oprah show about a year and a half ago. Great experience! So glad I had the chance to go before she wrapped up the show. Love your cherry quilt!

Any help is appreciated!

Hi from Ireland! I love the little quilt it's so bright and cheerful and the fabrics are beautiful! I have linked up my first ever quilt (Bliss Charm) thanks for the opportunity to link. I'd love to gain some new followers on my blog so please pop over and say hi and link to follow!

randi said...

I just discovered your Fabric Tuesday, what a cool linky party! If I can figure it out I'll link up a project from last week, otherwise I just follow along.
Cool famous people encounters. My dad's friend has a binocular rental business in Hollywood that I worked for during summers in college. I rented out to Breckin Meyer (from Clueless) once and Courtney Cox smiled and said Hi to me at the Emmy's (back when Friends was big). :)
