It's a Pineapple Express!

Pineapple anyone?  Isn't this delicious?  My first in a long time hand-guided quilt.  The borders are a custom pineapple computer aided design though.  Lady wanted SID in the pineapples and around the applique and just a meander in the background.  Count them...48 pineapples SID!

Introducing Morning Glory Medallion

I have arrived...the debut of Morning Glory Medallion, by My Lady.  I will let the pictures speak.  If this slide show doesn't work, go to my Picasa album to see the rest.  Thank you 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.
