Designer mystery

Fat Quarter Shop is running a designer mystery block of the month and they asked ME to design a block for it! Along with the BOM they are doing a blog hop too!
The theme for the designer blog hop is “My Vintage Modern”, which is also the MODA fabric line the mystery quilt is made with…designed by Bonnie and Camille. We were all asked to find something that was “classic” to us….we had to send in a picture and they cropped it so it was harder to guess what each item was…you need to guess in my comment section and you will win a prize from Fat Quarters shop!!! A layer cake of my newest fabric line!

I am blogging from the cruise ship, so this will not be my best post ever…and you can hate me for a little bit for being in this 80 degree weather, but someone has to teach these ladies the blanket stitch, so why not me?

Here is my picture….can u guess what it is????do u need a clue???no clue….just do it….u can guess this one!20120210-174400.jpg

    Tennis shoes, not exactly sure what brand but I think we can see a swish of a Nike tail.

  7. Cindy Avatar

    Okay…there’s the slogan….’just do it’….and I see the swoosh…..and I see velcro….so, nike velcro tennis shoe?

  8. LouAnn Avatar

    I think I see a Nike swoosh so I’m going to guess your picture is a tennis shoe.

      I thought right away that this must be part of a shoe. I’ll be curious to see if I am right.

    A tennis shoe for sure. I believe I see the tail of a Nike swoosh.

  24. Karen Avatar

    Looks like a velcro strap on some sort of shoe or sandal ? But then again, the teather pulls look like it may just be stripe with a lace up on a shoe or some sort !! Ha ha ha… great cropping.

    Thanks for the hop !

  25. Marsha Avatar

    Must be a shoe (sneaker of some sort) . Good job of cropping the pic! Havea great cruise! Could use some of that 80 degree weather and sunshine where I live!

  26. Marian Avatar

    No, those aren’t velcro straps – it’s the side of the shoe. You can just see the tongue and the loops where the laces thread through. Nike of course. Pretty funky shoes!

  27. Heidi Avatar

    I think it’s an old pair of Adidas tennis shoes.

  28. cindy Avatar

    A silver shoe of course, maybe birkenstock. Comfy looking.

    Some snazzy tennis shoes! For some reason, those shoes always make me think of Mork from Ork– out of this world! 🙂 My daughters each had a super cool jacket that would have matched those shoes perfectly– one pink and the other blue with lots of that silver trim! As I said, — SNAZZY! 🙂

    I am thinking some brand of tennis shoe. The brand has me a little stumped, but they sure look like they are still in good condition. Do you wear them??

  85. Joanna Perry Avatar

    Well, my best guess is sneakers or walking shoe ties. Ridiculous, but that’s my guess.

    You did give a clue with your comment of “Just Do It!” My guess is that it is a very CLEAN Nike sport shoe – I’ll use the old classic term of “sneaker.” Continue to enjoy your cruise!

  126. Satu Avatar

    OMG, I had no clue… but it must be a part of athletic shoe, loops for the ribbon. Are they for running or for aerobic? I choose, they have to be your aerobic shoes ;o)

  127. Terri U. Avatar

    My guess is that this is a Nike tennis shoe. Not sure of what the exact style is but would guess that it is a lace up tie style and there is some pink on the shoe.
