Can you guess the designer? Part 1 & Part 2

 How good are you at recognizing designer patterns, styles, fabrics, works by famous people, etc? If you have been a follower of my blog, you should know I've been trying to build my skills in being able to recognize designers by their work (and ultimately the work of their students).  

Are you interested in building your skills in this area too?  Do you think you recognize who created this quilt?  Or is this going to be a challenge that stumps you? 

This is part one of this post.  It is a challenge to see if you can guess the creator of this quilt.  The first person to correctly guess the designer of this quilt will be recognized in part two of this post, as well as be recognized on  http://sewcalgal.blogspot.com/p/designer-challenge.html

I will also update this post to reflect who was the first to accurately guess the designer, and share a bit more insight on this designer, as well. If no one can accurately guess the designer by 5pm PST today, I will add more clues.  If no one is able to guess within 24 hours, I will update to reflect who the designer is and that this challenge stumped everyone.   So, I hope you'll  play along and have fun in the process.

note: If there is a discrepancy on designers, that may have similar styles, SewCalGal will be the ultimate judge to determine the winner. And, in most cases, the photo of the quilt shown in this post will also be posted on the designers site.


Who Guessed it: Creative Busy Hands   (aka Luiza).
Who is this designer:  Sandra Leichner
About this designer:

The design and detailed workmanship on this quilt is spectacular.

Very cute! I don't know who the designer is but it looks like something Bronwyn Hayes would design.
