And MORE Spring Cleaning

The first two are Lisa's shop sample, the next one is Linda's, next is Patty's, and the last one is Debbie's.

A couple of years ago there was a quilt shop in Carlton, Oregon called Late Bloomers. The shop sold to Lisa White and she changed the name to The Quilt Nest. Eventually she moved the shop to her home and phased it out. I purchased four sets of her Buck a Block quilt kits and passed them around to my cousin, and my two daughters, keeping one for myself.
Since then I have had two customers bring me tops that were from the same project. SO, eventually I will have the pleasure of quilting SIX of these beauties, besides the shop sample for Lisa when she was still in the Carlton brick and mortar. I'm posting pictures of the various versions, and the two that are already quilted. Talk about spring cleaning, someone has been busy! Patty's and Debbie's are in queue, mine is still in the block stage, and as far as I know, my daughters have not started theirs yet. And so spring cleaning goes on. . .

I am Bonnie Russell, owner and quilter, and my business is making beautiful quilts and making quilts beautiful. NABQC came about as a partnership between the love of sewing and hazelnut farming. That's how the name was chosen. My husband, Fred, is the nut farmer, and I do the sewing using many bolts of fabulous fabric. My studio is located in Dundee, Oregon, the beautiful Willamette Valley, in the center of a hazelnut orchard. Experience came with 42 years of dress making, 40 years of marriage to my wonderful, loving, supportive husband (34 years of nut farming), 25 years of raising three daughters, and now we have seven grandchildren to mentor in Future Quilters of America!

With a Statler Stitcher and Gammill Optimum Plus longarm quilting machine, a 14 foot table, and the drawing program AutoSketch, no project is too big or too small. Anything from hand guided meandering to custom digitized designs can be applied to a project to complete that labor of love.
