Fat Quarter Shop 2012 Designer Mystery Blog Hop


Today is our day in the Fat Quarter Shop 2012 Designer Mystery Block of the Month! If you've been following along, you know we have a mysterious photo that you will have to guess about. Here it is.....
I've been following along too and I believe I have guessed some correctly, and some I am at a total loss for. I think you have it easy here. Not only does the picture pretty much give it away - I will give you some clues.

This has been in my possession for over 10 years. It belonged to our aunt Rita for a lot longer than that. It was not brand new when she got it. It is at least 75 years old and probably closer to 100 years old. I think that satisfies the "vintage" part of the category. As for modern - well I think it's still pretty chic, and will be for a long time to come - so I guess it qualifies for "modern" too. Aunt Rita probably deserves her own blog post eventually. Everyone has a goofy aunt, don't they? Aunt Rita was ours.

This is all about the 2012 BOM from the Fat Quarter shop that we designed a block for. The lovely quilt (which you can see part of at the top of the post) is made with Vintage Modern by Bonnie and Camille for Moda Fabrics.

Do you need more clues?? Well, whenever I wear this item it makes me think of this song.


Still don't know what it is?? How about this --
Make a comment below and make your guess and you could be picked to win a Layer Cake™ of Prairie Paisley II from the Fat Quarter Shop. We'll also pick a winner here and send out something. Thanks!

Laurie

I think it's a necklace. Being from Canada I have never heard of a squash blossom necklace. I wondered why the pic of the zucchini flowers...now it makes sense. Beautiful patina to the necklace...very pretty.
