Vintage Modern...Vintage Modern...Vintage Modern...Vintage Modern..


Just let me start out with a big "Thank You" to Kimberly and the Fat Quarter Shop team!  

So thrilled that you chose our Vintage Modern line for the 2012 Designer Mystery Block of the Month!  I just happened to get a sneak peek of the entire quilt and it is absolutely beautiful. 

Ladies, you will not want to miss out on this project. Trust me on this one.


It's been such a fun line to design with. 

Vintage Modern will be available before you know it!   
(Watch for it in May)



So, here is my Vintage Modern item from my closet.

Just a couple of clues.

They were my Mom's before they were mine...

  
I let my kids play dress up in them a few years ago...
(not sure why I did that!!!)


They had something to do with this...




...and yes, they will be passed down to one of my girls...
(possibly, the one in the picture above).

Hint: It might not be that obvious, you might want to think twice before you answer.
Hmmm, another clue maybe...

If you are right, you could be the winner for one of these...
Since it is Bonnie and Camille day for the hop, pop on over and enter on Camille's blog too!

Then stop by Fig Tree tomorrow and see what clues Joanna has for you.

  5. My first thought was pearls - worn first by your mother, then you on your wedding days.
    But would you let a child play with them? Then I recalled that I had let my son use my pearls and other jewellery as treasure when he was playing Pirates once upon a time.
    So I am sticking with pearls and you being a lovely mummy!

  24. A beautiful string of pearls....you would wear pearls around the neck or the wrist. As a bridesmaid back in the 70's I was given a pearl bracelet. Pearls are perfect to pass down from generation to generation...good choice for the vintage modern blog hop!!

  52. I'm going with a pearl necklace although it could be a bedspread for all I know from the last part of your post :)

    ReplyDelete
  53. A lovely family treasure... absolutely made of pearls, but what it is? If it's not so obvious like a necklace, then I'll guess it's a gorgeous bracelet.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I will say- pearl earrings... :)Tanis

    ReplyDelete
  55. Bonnie, I think they are pearls-yes, but no longer in necklace form. I bet somewhere along the line they came unstrung and now are sewn on your daughter's wedding dress, and will be used that way for many more weddings to come. What a great way to share such a special gift!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I think it may be a peral bracelet.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I would have to say it is a strand of pearls. I am fortunate to own my grandmother's pearl necklace and earrings and it was something I wore on my wedding day. My father had given them to her and that made it even more special. Someday I hope that my daughter will wear them on her special day!

    ReplyDelete
  58. I think they are a strand of pearls.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Beautiful pearls! How nice to have a family heirloom to be used by every family generation. Lucky you!

    ReplyDelete
  61. Beautiful pictures! They look like either a pearl necklace or bracelet to me. Such wonderful family history.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I think it´s a pearl brooch. When I got married I used my mother´s. Something blue, something borrowed. She gave it to me some years ago and when my daughter marries I will give it to her. Beautiful fabric!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Definately pearls. But how they are currently worn...hmmm. Bracelet, earrings, maybe both? Or a set that includes a necklace?

    ReplyDelete
  64. Every woman should have a strand of pearls.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Pearl necklace and/or earrings

    ReplyDelete
  74. Pearls, pearls and more pearls. The complete set...earrings, bracelet and necklace...it looks as though your mom is wearing all three in the picture (if I look real close it looks like she has the bracelt on her left wrist), I could be wrong...but that's my guess!
    Can't wait for May and Vintage Modern to be available to us all. Everyone should have some Vintage Modern in their life

    ReplyDelete
  75. These are unstrung pearls in the photo. Maybe restrung as another pearl necklace or used as the buttons on the wedding gown. ~ Jody R.

  95. Well, pearls are obvious and a necklace would be obvious so what would be not quite so obvious? Earrings? Bracelet? I'm looking forward to the answer on this one.

    ReplyDelete
  96. I guess pearls is the obvious answer, but I can't come up with another. Looking forward to seeing the fabric line up close.

  98. Hi Bonnie,
    I'm thinking at one time, there were pearls on a strand/necklace. Then, they came unstrung, and maybe were re-strung into a bracelet.

    hope i'm right!

    ReplyDelete
  120. debra at first glance obvious responce strand of pearls but as you went on with clues then showed the wedding dress i will go with a memory from my grandmother. I was handed down pearls but off the strand and pearl buttons of different sizes from her wedding gown since in the picture it looks like they are off the strand and in the right lower corner some smaller my guess will be pearls off strand handed down as a keepsake a combo of necklace and gown. thanks for the opportunity debrakinkade@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  140. I'm going away from the obvious but am not too sure with my guess at the same time. I was going to guess a purse with a pearl cluster clasp and strung pearls for the handle and matching gloves that were the type that you had the side opening on and pearls for the buttons.

    ReplyDelete

  147. Pearls... I was thinking bracelet or earrings. But I noticed the bride has a lovely pearl ring. So maybe you broke up your mother's pearl necklace into various pieces of smaller jewelry?

    ReplyDelete
  148. Pearls are so beautiful. Looks like a strand of pearls as in a necklace. I hope you didn't take them apart, but if you did, some may have been sewn onto the dress.
    Thanks. Margaret K.

    ReplyDelete
  149. Pearls, and by the look of it, a pearl necklace!
