My One Celebrity Experience

Today's prompt in the 31 Day Blogging Challenge is about a favorite "sewlebrity."

I thought it would be a fun twist to share my fun "sewlebrity" experience, way back from 2007. 

I was the editor for a magazine called the $100,000 Quilting Challenge--a contest in magazine format, that--you guessed it--gave away $100,000 to the winning quilt. Long story short, the winning quilt, quilter, and me, as the magazine's editor, ended up with the opportunity to be on the Today Show. I got my hair and make-up done at the show, and got to wait in the green room (and tried not to throw up from nerves!).

Here's the video of the segment. 

The winning quilt is a gorgeously detailed wholecloth machine quilted by Linda McCuean. The segment was shot outside, in January, on a very windy morning. Quilt holders with white gloves were required to keep the quilt from blowing. Don't miss the horrifying twist at the end. 

So that was my two minutes of being a "celebrity." :) And probably the most interesting experience I never want to do again!
