The Sharon F File

Sharon F dropped off five quilts way back sometime in the summer.  I've been super busy with summer activities (road trips, Alaska cruise - it's a hard life when you're "retired"! ) and of course, quilting.  Anyway, I finally got to them.  She's coming to pick them up later today, so I checked for loose threads and did the photo shoot.  Here's what they look like:

There are two black/white/red numbers.  The top one is made from left over blocks from the bigger one further below.  They reminded me of art deco, so I tried to quilt them to enhance that feel.  I did them both the same with minor variation in the borders because I wasn't sure of the end use - if they are seen together it would probably work better if they are the same.  I may be the only one who thinks that way (the art deco/sameness thing), but I'm pretty happy with the way they turned out.

This is smallish table runner.  Here I wanted to have the quilting flow with the fabric design, which looks like water drops flowing off a window in the rain.  Call me crazy.

Appliqued flowers - echoed.  Floral in the green border and a variation of orange peel in the squares.

Sharon did have a name for this quilt (below) but I can't remember what it is.  In any event, to me it's "traditional" and floral so what better than to feather the heck out of it?
