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, in 2010, 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?  Or, do you think you recognize who created this quilt?  Or is this going to be a challenge that stumps you?  {hint:  They've been recognized recently for their contributions in the world of quilting}.

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 in 24 hours, I will update this post to reflect same, along with sharing insights on the designer. So, I hope you'll check back.

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: Pam-n-Philly (Maya Angelou)
Who is this designer: Bonnie K. Hunter  (Quiltville)

Bonnie has recently released a new book "Adventures with Leaders & Enders".

Bonnie is also well known for her book "Scraps & Shirttails".

I have not yet seen either of these books, but as I too love scrap quilts, I'm hoping to check them out soon. 

Bonnie enjoys visiting quilt guilds to give trunk shows, lectures & workshops.

Clearly, Bonnie is a very talented woman.  While I wasn't familiar with her, before the Golden Quilter Awards, I can understand why so many people nominated her and voted for her, for various awards, and why she won the cateogory of the Best Teacher/Instructor of the Golden Quilter Awards.  I hope to someday be able to take a class or workshop with Bonnie!
