2012 Designer Mystery Blog Hop

Welcome to my day of the 2012 Designer Mystery Blog Hop.

Well Kimberly Jolly and the staff over at Fat Quarters have outdone themselves again. Fat Quarters not only organized a fabulous fun mystery quilt but they will be giving away 1 Layer Cake™ of the featured designer each day of the hop. That's a total of 13 FREE Layer Cakes—PLUS the grand prize! Thank you Kimberly!

The fabric featured in the mystery series is Vintage Modern by Moda fabrics designed by the very pretty mother daughter team of Bonnie and Camille.

If you are looking for the definition of Vintage Modern you will not find it in a dictionary.
Google it and you will not find an actual definition either.
My definition would be to take something vintage that is classic and timeless and add something new and trendy for the modern part of Vintage Modern.

Our task was to find a piece of clothing in our closets that was Vintage Modern.
Let's review:
I live in an 1890's house.
No closets. (My closet is an antique wardrobe that measures just 5 feet across.)
Not even a coat closet.
Therefore I do not keep my old clothing. When I buy something I donate something old.
Sooo my choices were very limited.

This is a snippet of my item.

The item was purchased at a store that is called by a different name today.
The item was purchased 30 years ago.
Audrey would have only worn this with brown - but not brown diamonds.
Someday my daughter might wear this item.
Can you guess what this item is?
You have 24 hours to leave ONE guess in the comment area of this post

Whoever guesses correctly will then be entered to win this Sassy Layer Cake™ complements of Fat Quarter Shop.
Thank you Kimberly!

If you would like to sign up for the Block of the Month Club featuring the Vintage Modern fabric collection, you can do so here.

Thanks for stopping by today. Tomorrow the mystery continues over at Bonnie and Camille's blogs. (Two blogs to visit tomorrow.)

Happy Guessing.

From my heart,
