I found good luck with Trek TTX and C'dale (the new one, the Slice), and also Specialized (which I ended up getting).

2007 Specialized Transition Pro- I ride a medium b/c of my leg length, but they run small... the Transitions do that is.
I've been sized and would be on a (mens b/c the colors are better for me...I like darker colors) 48 in a Cervelo, 50 or 51 in Trek, Giant, etc.

Have you thought about the Kestrel Airfoil? It's supposed to be AWESOME for short riders. Dan did an article on small bikes a while ago and really sang the Airfoil's praises. I know colors shouldn't matter, but I think the Airfoil is super-ugly this year, else I'd be considering it, too.
For my roadie I have a 44cm Cannondale Optimo. I didn't know that Slowman highly reccomends this bike for shorties until after I bought her, but that bike fits me perfectly.
The thing I found looking for a very short top tube is many brands smallest bike was still too long for me. Most others came with 650 wheels.
If the QR wouldn't fit the next best option for me was a custom Guru but it was real expensive.
You could go with either the Felt or QR - both are great brands. Check ito some of teh Women Specific models since they are designed for people "more leg than torso" and often have a narrower bar if your shoulders aren't very broad.
