Love has no desire but to fulfill itself.  To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.  To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving.
~Kahlil Gibran
Happy Valentine's Day (everyday)!

To help spread the love far and wide, Kimberly and the crew at Fat Quarter Shop have a fun treat in store for you. They are hosting the very first ever Designer Mystery Blog Hop! Twelve Moda designers (lucky me included) had the chance to work with Bonnie and Camille's new fabric line called "Vintage Modern". We each designed a block that became part of this gorgeous quilt:
You can sign up for the Block of the Month at Fat Quarter Shop.

For the blog hop, Kimberly asked us all to dig around in our closets and pull out some item that meant "Vintage Modern" to us. What would it be for you? Not so easy, but lots of fun (even though it made me aware of all the spring closet cleaning i'll need to do!). So each day for the next few weeks, you will have to be a detective. Each designer will be posting a tiny close-up image of their "vintage modern" item along with a clue. Leave one guess about what you think the item is, and you could win a layer cake from the designer's most current fabric collection...or maybe the grand prize, which is of course...a mystery!

Get out your spy glass and follow the clues:
