New Quilts in the process...

This is one of Anna's quilts that I just finished. She pieced the top in her own original design. The E2E and outer border is a design called Daisy Days by Kay Oft, Mountain Top Quilting. The inner border is one I did myself. It has elements from the fabric and makes a nice division between the inner and outer quilt. The batting is Quilter's Dream Wool and feels so nice and light, but has the warmth of wool. The backing is a fine batik and the thread is 100% cotton Signature. Bury threads, finish binding and it's done.

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.
