The Stars Fell on Alabama Last Night


Moonlight and magnolias, starlight in your hair

All the world a dream come true

Did it really happen, was I really there

Was I really there with you

We lived our little drama, we kissed in a field of white

And stars fell on Alabama that night

I can't forget the glamour, your eyes held a tender light

And stars fell on Alabama last night

Chorus:I never planned in my imagination, a situation so heavenly

A fairy land that no one else could enter

And in the center, just you and me, dear

My heart beat like a hammer, my arms wound around you tight

And stars fell on Alabama last night

Chorus:I never planned in my imagination, a situation so heavenly

A fairy land that no one else could enter

And in the center, just you and me, dear

My heart beat like a hammer, my arms wound around you tight

Ah, stars fell on Alabama last night ...
This quilt is named for this song, made famous by Billie Holiday and Frank Sinatra. This is Grandma Hunnybunny's quilt top without borders. But at least I finished sewing this together today. It amazes me how much I can get done when I pop a movie into the computer...or in my case, back to back movies.

Hey Beth, I first time visiting your blog ;) I grew up in Campbellsville, KY and went to college in Bowling Green ;)

I love your stars fell on AL quilt. Those colors really pop against that bright white. I've never made those types of stars but have seen them all around blog land. I hear there are some helpful rulers to use... JudyL recently did a project with them.

anyway, nice to meet you and I'll have you bookmarked. ;) Love from Texas! ~bonnie
