It’s a Mystery!

Stop by The Fat Quarter Shop’s Jolly Jabber blog this week and you’ll be in for a treat!  Jolly Jabber is sponsoring the first ever Designer’s Mystery Blog Hop!   12 Moda designers (including me!) each designed a block for this amazing mystery quilt using Camille and Bonnie’s “Vintage Modern” fabric line from Moda.   Here’s a sneak peek…

Don’t you just love the look?  You’ll find this block of the month at The Fat Quarter Shop! 

If you had to go into your closet and pick something that says “Vintage Modern” could you do it?  Kimberly at The Fat Quarter Shop asked each of us to do just that!   Now here’s where the fun starts… visit each designer’s blog this week and guess what they found (don’t worry you’ll get lots of clues), leave a comment on each blog guessing what it is and you’ll be entered to win a layer cake of each designer’s fabric!  Visit the Jolly Jabber blog on the last day of the hop and the answers and winners will be revealed.  Hey, maybe you’ll win a layer cake!  You have 12 chances!

So, here we go, some clues to help you out!

You just might find a bit of ribbon trim on it…

Think I saw a couple of these on it…

And this little guy might have had a little something to do with it…

If these were blooming I wouldn’t be wearing it…

But it you saw this tree I might be…

So what do you think this is?

Oh come on, I’ve made it so easy for you!  You just might have one of these in your closet too!  I hear they’re coming back “in”.  Vintage Modern for sure!

Leave a comment on this post telling me what you think this is, then visit these fabulous designers this week for more clues!

February 14, 2012 - 3:55 am

Karen - Yes ! A fully embellished Christmas sweater — these days the adult children are borrowing from their parents closets and wearing them to ugly sweater holiday parties !! Can you imagine ? My nephew and his wife win prizes every year wearing the “best” of my sister’s embellished Christmas Sweaters !! Sometimes Vintage just isn’t respected — lol.

Happy Tuesday !
Karen

February 14, 2012 - 4:29 am

Marcia - Well it’s an article of cloting that has ribbon/trim on it and buttons. It’s made of wool and is worn in the winter not summer. So I think a button down sweater would be correct though I don’t know that it has to be Christmas. I think button down sweaters are coming back in so Christmas or otherwise: Button Down Sweater. :)

February 14, 2012 - 4:30 am

AngieSue - A Christmas cardidgan! And it looks like it has metallic threads too!

February 14, 2012 - 5:42 am

paulette doyle - Hey, you just described my Christmas Sweater!! It has all of the above on it and my daughters hate it…which is why I wear it!!

Nancy C. in Utah - Yup, I agree, it must be one of those “Lovely” Sweaters that someone gave us as a gift or perhaps, just perhaps we had one of those moments when we bought one for ourselves and when we put it on for the first time wondered “What was I thinking???” LOL … It is funny that even though everyone seems to think they are … to be polite … a little ‘out there’, you still see them on holiday shoppers and party goers every year. So I wonder, are they really as awful as we think they are, or does when we see one on someone should we just appreciate their playful Holiday spirit??? Just sayin…Hugs…

February 14, 2012 - 8:52 am

February 14, 2012 - 10:52 pm

Dianne - Your “Vintage Modern” item is a woolen decorated Christmas sweater. I have one that I don’t wear anymore, but can’t give away. It’s so pretty. That’s why I bought it in the first place.

February 14, 2012 - 11:04 pm

February 15, 2012 - 12:45 am

Oggi - First off I love your photos and they are great clues. Then like most others I think it must be a woolen sweater (what we Aussies call a jumper), cardigan or vest with a Christmas theme. Definately something we don”t need to wear at Christmas!

February 15, 2012 - 12:48 am

Sunni - I think it’s an “ugly” Christmas sweater. They are back in if you wear them ironically. (whatever that means!)

February 15, 2012 - 2:11 am

February 15, 2012 - 3:07 am

VickiT - It’s got to be one of what if fondly called “the ugly Christmas sweater” with all the trims and other things included and yours may just have Santa on it.
Yep, they’re back “in”. I saw a news spot talking about the woman who has made them for years now and how she’s having trouble keeping up with making them because of the demand.

February 15, 2012 - 3:12 am

Joan - I think it is a Christmas sweater, thanks for the giveaway.

February 15, 2012 - 4:07 am

February 15, 2012 - 7:39 am

Annie Young - It’s definitely a Christmas Sweater and guess what… I’ve always loved them and secretly hoped someone would get one for me, but sadly no. So finally…this year, I got myself one with penguins on it so I guess technically it’s just a “winter” sweater but it sure looks like “Christmas”. ;-)

February 15, 2012 - 7:45 am

Diane Gunter - I agree with all the rest. It is obviously a sweater with a lovely vintage Santa on it.

February 15, 2012 - 7:51 am

Kathy Orlando - Looks like a Santa Christmas sweater to me. I’m only sorry that I didn’t save all of the really “ugly” ones I had in the 80′s. I even bought matching ones for my young daughters. Ugh!

February 15, 2012 - 7:52 am

Kathi Shortell - A Christmas sweater !

February 15, 2012 - 8:00 am

Marsha - It’s a ugly Christmas sweater. I still have mine and I still wear it!

February 15, 2012 - 8:02 am

Janice - What else?….a Christmas sweater, of course. First thought was a hat, but the farther I read, it became clearer that Christmas on Valentines Day is the perfect answer.

February 15, 2012 - 8:09 am

toni-anne - I have to go with Christmas sweater because although i don’t actually own one i have desired to wear one and have seen plenty! This is fun.. thanks.

February 15, 2012 - 8:21 am

Karen - Absolutely, it has to be those vintage Christmas sweaters. The more decorated the better! Cats on and in a Christmas tree was one I had. Someone made a comment (not really nice) snout the sweater figures and I never wore the sweater again. I liked it though, with it’s buttons and sparkles and even beaded fishes.

February 15, 2012 - 8:24 am

Janet - It looks like I’m not the only one who thought of a Christmas sweater :0)

February 15, 2012 - 8:41 am

Kathy Roberts - It is absolutely, positivley, no doubt about it, without question and I’ll bet a million dollars it’s a CHRISTmas sweater!! And yes, the tackier the better is on a comeback!

February 15, 2012 - 8:51 am

Bonny ~* - I think it’s a sweater…not a Christmas sweater because you might be wearing it in the spring when the flowers are blooming.

February 15, 2012 - 8:52 am

Bonny ~* - Ooops…you wouldn’t be wearing it in the spring…so it is a Christmas sweater…lol!

February 15, 2012 - 9:22 am

Rae R - A Christmas sweater, maybe the ugly, er… really unique kind. :)

February 15, 2012 - 9:22 am

Angie - Well I feel stupid for not realizing what it was by myself, but everyone else thinks it’s a Christmas sweater. I can’t believe those might be coming back, so I’m going to go with “felted, ribboned, christmas-themed brooch.” Sound good?

February 15, 2012 - 9:29 am

Kay Mc - I’m thinking it has to be a Christmas sweater. Hope it’s a pretty one.

February 15, 2012 - 9:29 am

Cathy Byrd - A Woolen Christmas Sweater / or Vest. But – Sadly – when did the go out of style? I guess I am behind the times. Oh well….
