A Quick Do-Over

A little mystery...

Today's post is a bit of a mystery indeed.....


If you've been following along then you can skip right down to the bottom because you probably already know what to do!

For everybody else....

Today is my day on the FQS Designer Mystery BOM Blog Hop. Each day one of us lucky ladies who designed a block for the upcoming Designer Mystery Block of the Month is showing you a little detail... a very little detail.... of something that is "Vintage Modern" and near and dear to us. Something from some part of our wardrobe! For me that is the little blur of cream and green that you see above. Can you guess what it is? All of you who guess correctly will be entered to win a Layer Cake of California Girl [courtesy of Fat Quarter Shop]!

Yup, that's right! So put on your thinking cap and start commenting. 


...this is a shot of a bundle which we have a few of here, and a layer cake is being given for this contest!!

My hints: 

I unearthed it at my favorite flea market. It matches one of my favorite sweaters. I wear it a couple of times a year at a quilt related event... just because that is one of my only opportunities to dress up LOL!



As always I had a lot of fun participating in one of Kimberly's fabulous BOMs and this one does not disappoint!

 In fact, they are always fun to participate in and to do. Do you remember this one from Strawberry Fields? I can't wait to see that one done up and quilted. A bunch of my customers and friends are working on it. Anyone close to being finished yet?

Be sure to continue on with the hop over at Laurie & Polly's blog on Monday! Who knows what they will have up their sleeve... they are a hilarious pair!


Any ideas ladies... and gentlemen too of course?



I'm going to guess something beaded, such as a bracelet but most likely it's a necklace. Thanks for chance to enter!

This is a tough one. It looks like it could be crystal earrings or a necklace. I think I'll go with a necklace. Thanks for the terrific giveaway.

I think it is a skirt - thanks for the chance to win! Love your fabric line!!

My guess would be a beaded necklace or bracelet. Beautiful colors!

Thanks for the opportunity to win!

A bit of bling for the neck - as it looks fragile & to show it off - a necklace expecially against a lemon or lime green sweater.

i think it is a vintage necklace!

You truly found a treasure to wear & I think it is a lovely necklace!

I think it is a piece of jewerly that you put on your sweater to bring the sweater together in the middle of the chest. i cannot remember the exact name of those things. My grandmother wore them with her sweaters

My guess is a necklace! Thanks for the chance to win!

i think its a fabulous vintage necklace. i love the colours in it.

Looks like a necklace, my grandma had one with beads like that. It was my favorite sparkly necklace when I was little.

Is it a sweater pin? That's probably not the name, but like someone said above- the one that holds the sweater together at the top.

I thinks it's a beaded necklace.....I love them!

A necklace or bracelet...beautiful colors!

My guess is a crystal necklace. Thanks for the opportunity to win the layer cake.

I have to guess that it's a beaded necklace or pin/brooch - But before I looked at the pic, and just read your description, I fantasized that it was a tiara! (Because you deserve one!)

Debra--I think it is a vintage necklace which appears to be made from crystal/glass carved pieces in a flower/petal like shape with a splash of color. thanks for the opportunity for the giveaway

I am guessing that your item is a very pretty beaded necklace. It may even be a long necklace that can be wrapped around twice.

Looks like a necklace to me!

I used to play dress up with my Great Aunt's crystal beads..this reminds me of them. I guess a vintage necklace. BTW I just ordered a charm pack of California Girl, can't wait to "play" with it!! I LOVE THE COLORS and all your fabrics.

Whenever I see pictures of you from Quilt Market, you're always wearing a beautiful necklace, so that's my guess, too x

I think it's a neclace with glass or crystal beads. It's lovely!

Ohhh...a necklace. And I just have to say that I'm in love with California Girl. I'm very impatiently awaiting the yardage because the FQ bundle and the jelly roll simply aren't enough CG to keep me in happy fabric.

A vintage bracelet. Lovely sparkly colors.

Look like a necklace made of glass beads...which everyone else is saying too!

My guess is that it's vintage jewelry!

I'll go for a beaded necklace! Thanks for the chance to play!
