More From Sharon Schamber

I wanted to show you a few more quilts from
Sharon Schamber's Trunk Show
when she came to the 
Phoenix Modern Quilt Guild
Seeing so many AMAZING pieces 
one after another 
literally took my breath away.
 Our Children of Freedom (2003)
91" X 85"
 Sharon's daughter Christy 
taught elementary school for several years.
The inspiration came from the children 
in Christy's 2nd grade class.
 Sharon dedicated this quilt to the importance of the learning experience.
 Won Best of Show
Pennsylvania National Quilt Extravaganza, Philadelphia, PA 2004
and several other awards.
 Emerald Reflections
 How would you feel if you had to make this quilt twice?
The original was destroyed in a UPS truck fire
in 2000 while on it's way to be photographed 
for Quilter's Newsletter.
 Putting in over 2,000 hours of work
Sharon remade this stunning quilt
renaming it Memories of Emerald Reflections
 We asked Sharon if she had a favorite out of all of the 
quilts she has made. 
Her answer:
A Perfect Moment (2002)
85" X 101"
 The image was hand painted
with the dress quilted.
But wait, there's more!
I'll be back tomorrow
with additional quilts by Sharon Schamber.
