Fun Pillows in Pink

This is what I do when someone gives me lots of fabric and free reign. Thought you'd like to see them. I may not have them in this order-- still learning how to post pictures, but here goes:

Chenille by the Inch, by FabriCafe. It's so easy.
Raw Edge Applique, another easy method. I used SoftFuse.
The little log cabin is a mini-replica of the quilt. I even scalloped the edges.
The pillow is a digitized pattern by Tanya Del Togno Armanasco, Portland, Oregon, Quilt Savvy.
The quilt is called "Charming Log Cabin", and as you can see, is simple as pie. The top and bottom borders are waved with bias binding applied to the back, which will finish to the front.

Enjoy, and thanks for looking.

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.
