Sharon Wright

Sharon Wright taught one of the lectures that I attended at the winter retreat at Ruby's Inn.  She does beautiful work and I greatly admire her work.  She has made some beautiful quilts.  She also brings homemade carmels to class.  I have been to several of her lectures and I am never disappointed.  I enjoy listening to her and she has some wonderful tips.  This first photo is one I am very impressed with.  She printed the words she wanted from her computer, then she traced them onto the fabric.  At that point she stitched with her sewing machine the outline of the words.  Now this is the best part.  Then she took a Pigma Pen and filled in the letters.  It looks like stitching but with out the embroidery machine.  I love this technique.

This is the back of the one below.  It is very scrappy.  Isn't that a fun way to use your fabric on the back.

This quilt is the perfect spring quilt.  I am so looking forward to spring.  I love the appliqué too.

This was some fabric painting if I remember correctly.

This is one that was done for a church theme.  It is the sacred grove.

This one is the back for the one below.  It is busy.  She was able to use some orphan blocks, or at least some she had put aside from another project to make this quilt.

This is her husband looking out the bathroom window.  

Can you believe all those yo-yos.  She actually took a quilt that she had purchased and added the yo-yos to make this quilt.

This is one of the collage quilts.

Her applique is amazing.

I have admired her wool work for a while.  She had done a mantal scarf years ago that I still remember that I love.  Wow she does great work.

This is a quilt done out of silk.

Last of all she had a block exchange and the theme was gingerbread men.  They are adorable, what a fun idea.  If you have a chance to go to one of Sharon's classes or lectures, I am sure you will enjoy it.
