Innovative and Entirely Possible

Here is the first rough draft. Lots to learn, with lots of dos and don'ts. Looks promising, huh? By the way, these wall hangings are approximately 24 inches by 18 inches each. The cupcake is a little shorter and wider.

Innovative Ideas Brewing

Think of stitching a template, building a quilt on the machine, and finishing with raw edges embellished with ric rac, buttons and such...more to come...
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.
