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 go with a beaded necklace. Great contest, thanks.

It looks like a crystal or beaded necklace to me. This is so much fun! Thanks for the chance to win.

Looks like a crystal (and freshwater pearl?) beaded necklace to me! Love the little green leaf bits!

I think it might be a necklace. Pretty colors!

My guess: it is a necklace.

The color combinations in your fabrics are so pleasing to the eye.

I think it is a necklace out of glass or crystal beads. I would love to win the layer cake out of such happy spring colors!

I'm guessing that it's a beaded necklace or bracelet, very pretty. Thanks!

This is really tough one, but I'll try to guess something. They look like glass beads... so I also say that it's a long beaded necklace.

This ia a tough one-but I guess I will say a necklace.

looks like a beaded necklace to me!

Very pretty. Looks like a necklace.
Terrific giveaway! Love each one of your fabric lines!

I think a necklace

Well, like all of the other lovely ladies guesses, I am saying a vintage necklace.

I have to go with a necklace also.

I think it's a necklace. Here's hoping you have more occasions to wear it.

I think it's a necklace. It's my favorite color too.

It looks like a necklace of beads! Thanks for the chance!

Love the clever angle of the photo! It appears to be a beautiful vintage crystal and beaded necklace. Looks lovely!

Such a pretty.... vintage.... beaded.... necklace... or... bracelet? I'm betting bracelet. :-) Love it, and can't wait to see the whole thing! Thank you for the fun! I love mysteries!

I am going with necklace....jmh

I know everyone has said it is a necklace and I could be very wrong but I am thinking since you wear it to some quilting events that it may be part of a crazy quilt vest. Similar to the crazy quilts you see but in the form of a vest that you would be able to wear. I hope I am right!

I too say a beaded necklace!

I am guessing it is a gorgeous beaded brooch or necklace. It is such a joy to find treasures like that especially when they go with something you already own.

My vote is for necklace

I love your designs. I think it is from a favorite skirt.

I think it's a necklace!

I am guessing a hair adornment

A beautiful beaded necklace that was some womans pride and joy! Just like you.

It looks like the bottom of a necklace, so that would be my guess. :) That little snippet is very pretty!

I'm going to say it is a beaded necklace...second guess would have been a sweater clip....luv your California Girl line....thanks for the chance to win some. :-D

I think it is a necklace. Would love to see the entire piece as it looks lovely.

Thanks for the giveaway.

Looks like a necklace to me. Thanks for the fun give-away!

I think maybe a set of beaded earrings, that you really enjoy wearing on special occasions :)

I think it is either a vintage bracelet or necklace! Thanks for the fun!!
Cheers, Colette

I'm guessing that it's a beaded necklace. I ordered your new pattern called "Boardwalk" and I'm watching my mailbox for it's arrival!

Looks like a vintage glass bead necklace - fabulous colors!

I think it must be a lovely vintage necklace???
Love your fabric lines...

I will guess a necklace as well!

I think it looks like a beaded necklace. Very pretty, whatever it is.

My guess is a vintage beaded necklace. Thanks for a chance.

I'm guessing its a beaded necklace! Thanks for the chance to win! Love your blog.

I think it is a necklace with green clovers in the beads.

I think it is a necklace

Reminds me of the beaded neclace that my favorite aunt made for me as a young girl. It made me feel so very grown up.

My guess is also a lovely beaded necklace.

The beads look like the ones my daughter used to make jewelry with. So I am guessing jewelry too, maybe a bracket.

I'm going to stick my neck out and be totally wrong and guess it's an apron.
