New quilts for spring

The red/yellow quilt I finished earlier but just put the borders on. The green quilt is a new one just finished. It's another one of those 1000 piece projects (1768 to be exact) that are so time consuming you just don't want to ever finish it. With the help of my cousin Patty, I fed the DSM while she organized, clipped, and pressed. She kept me on track and we did it in less than two days! I ran out of fabric, purchased in 2005, so now I'm on a hunt for suitable border fabric.

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.
