The two nuts are Betty Fernandez (right) and Treese Pflum (left). We are a mother/daughter team that have been quilting and creating together for the last twenty-three years, and sewing even longer.
Betty loves to paint, Treese is crazy about photography, and at times, both painting and photos end up in our art quilts and accessories. Treese has also taught quilting classes for adults and kids.
We have 12 sewing machines and quilting machines housed in our two homes that give us plenty of flexibility and options. Plus we always have an extra machine available when one is in for service.
We collaborate on many of our quilts--design, color, fabrics, borders and quilting --in person, on the phone and via email. But we also do our own style of quilts, Betty loves landscapes and Treese does modern takes on classics--pieced & applique--this is our passion...and how we have fun!
Welcome to QuiltNutz!
Our quilted creations are original, handmade for you to enjoy or give as gifts. Our love of color is a trademark of our quilts, wall hangings and accessories. We sometimes start with traditional ideas, but when we are done, it's anything but traditional.
Betty and Treese, the two "quilt nuts," are passionate about fabric and quilting. A while back we decided to share our passion with others, plus we really need the room. Treese's husband gave up on having the family room back and took possession of the living room. We try not to take ourselves too seriously, and have great fun collaborating on projects.
A few years ago, Treese added custom long arm quilting to the equation and offers this service to quilters. As we all know, the UFO's (unfinished objects) keep stacking up, and need to be completed, but who has the time? Or maybe you are one of the thousands of quilters who loves to piece, but hate to quilt. And, if you have arthritis or other physical limitations, we know it's a challenge to quilt your creations. Treese has over ten years of long arm experience and 35 years quilting experience with a keen eye for design that will enhance your finished top. Betty has been sewing since she was a little girl, and quilting for the last 23 years. She has been using a long arm for over six years and is the perfect quilting partner for Treese.
We also offer custom order quilts and memory quilts as options. Many of our custom quilts have pieces of clothing, t-shirts, ribbons, lace and photos of loved ones that are used to create a one-of-a-kind heirloom gifts. These make perfect wedding, engagement, graduation, anniversary and birthday gifts, as well as as quilts for college bound kids.
Our customers love their finished quilts, so check out the client reviews page. We hope you enjoy our quilts as much as we enjoyed making them.
