Mika // Navigate

We’re popping in today to share one last quilt using our fun Mika collection.

This quilt was made by Jessica VanDenburgh of Sew Many Creations using her new pattern Navigate, and it’s even more stunning in person. The star-like quilt blocks play beautifully with the asterisk designs in Mika, and Jessica did a terrific job of playing with the various textures in the fabric collection. We absolutely love the checkerboard effect in the background using Net in grey and beige!

If you want to make your own, you can find the pattern for purchase here and Mika is in stores now!

Here’s a closer shot of the quilt, which measures in at 42″ square:

We’ve been loving all of the projects we’re seeing on social media using Mika. If you make something with Dear Stella fabric, be sure to tag us (@dearstellafab and #dearstella) so we can see too!

Introducing Floral Daze!

Last week we introduced Fragments, and today we are sharing another new collection with you, Floral Daze – popping up in shops in January!

These designs were originally hand painted on delicate rice paper (except for our much-loved Sprinkles print, which we reinvented in a new color). In the color-drenched garden forged here, you can surely feel the painter’s ardent brushstrokes and flair – each piece tells a story.

We are so looking forward to seeing what you make with these prints! Floral Daze will undoubtedly make for vibrant quilts, bold apparel, and gorgeous accessories.

Floral Daze wouldn’t be complete without our popular Net basics. We added two new colors to the mix – Navy and Moss. These round out the palette, and we’re officially smitten.

Ask for Floral Daze at your local quilt shop or from your favorite online retailer, and add your makes to our Flickr group!

Introducing Fragments!

If you’re looking for a brighter Friday, you’ve come to the right place! We’re introducing our brand new Fragments collection today, and the happy colors in this line have for sure made us all a little cheerier.

Inspiration for Fragments was drawn from several ideas involving cross-stitch, computer pixels, and our fondness for large floral patterns. We loved how these designs looked when combined with our versatile Net print, so we included some of those saturated colors and added Peony and Grass (stay tuned on that front – more colors are coming!).

Here’s the full collection, below. We have some fun projects coming up for Fragments – we can’t wait to show you!

Fragments will be in shops in January! Want to add this to your stash? Ask for it at your local quilt shop or favorite online retailer!

Sunday Morning & Mika // Wynkoop Court

There’s a parade of Wynkoop Court quilts on the blog today! The sweet gals from Sassafras Lane Designs stitched up these two beautiful versions this past season. We love how different each quilt looks even though they use the same pattern. Super versatile!

Their first version uses our playful Mika collection. Thanks to the neutral Sunburst Stripe in Wheat and gorgeous quilting, the hexagons really pop! We truly love this mix of colors… This would no doubt brighten up any room.


Download a list of yardage requirements for this quilt using Mika here.

Next up is Wynkoop Court featuring Sunday Morning. Sassafras Lane played with color placement here, and the result is totally different from the Mika quilt! They used the big floral (Stella-S359 Purple) for the hexagon shape, and this version has a more blended look. This quilt is quite a stunner – even more so in person!

We especially love the Aquatic Stripe on the binding!


Find the yardage requirements for this quilt here.

Both Mika and Sunday Morning are in stores now! Find it at your local quilt shop or preferred online retailer. You can purchase the Wynkoop Court pattern here.

Now, which version is your fave? Let us know in the comments!

Lila // Seashore Baby Quilt

Lila is beginning to pop up into shops, and we are so excited to see what you guys make with this collection. We have some quilty inspiration for you, thanks to our much-loved copy of the book Liberty Love.

We are over the moon for this quilt, made by Shelly Pagliai. Between the sweet scalloped edges and gorgeous shades of deep blue and purple, you really can’t go wrong. The baby size of the quilt makes for a quick project, but we bet that a larger version would be gorgeous on any bed.

This Lila quilt was on display in our Quilt Market booth in October – check it out below.

Are you inspired yet?! We can’t wait to see your projects. If you use Flickr, be sure to share your photos in our Dear Stella Flickr Group! Or you can always upload them to Instagram and tag us: @dearstellafab and #dearstella. We love seeing what you create.
