Do you remember enjoying coloring when you were a kid? Oh the smell of new crayons, and new coloring books, and pretty colors. . .so much fun choosing what colors to use... Well now I've grown up and the fun hasn't stopped. I'm coloring with thread, drawing my own lines, and pretty much choosing how my quilts will be dressed. I've been working on a Thimbleberries quilt called Village Green. I'm sure you'll find it where Thimbleberries fabrics and patterns are sold. Here's a little sneak peek for your enjoyment...
Nuts and Bolts Quilting Company
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.
