Now Shipping // Made With Love

oimg_0749 We’re excited to announce that Made With Love by Rae Ritchie has begun shipping to stores!

With novel sewing supplies and busy scissors, the newest Rae Ritchie collection captures our deep love of sewing and making. Packed with unique hand-lettering, Made with Love includes customizable fabric labels to add that final touch to all your projects!


Rae shares the inspiration behind her Made With Love collection:

/// Sewing is really the thing that started my love of textiles and fashion. At about 15 years old I was obsessed with fashion and sewing my own clothes. Many hours were spent in the basement, dueling with my mom’s Elna sewing machine (which was passed down from her mother), making punk rock looking skirts and tops. I even bought some “made by” labels that I sent in for personalization. I believe they read “Made with Love for Baby by Rae”.

Later on, I went to UW-Stout to study fashion design & development – which was a spectacular program. There was LOTS of sewing to be had when I attended fashion design school, and I’m just now picking it back up!

I’m endlessly inspired seeing the things our customers make everyday out of the Dear Stella fabric line. I’m completely blown away by the skill and patience so many of you exhibit when making your lovely quilts, clothing and accessories. I hope you all are proud of your wares and mark them as yours with our new collection “Made with Love!” \\\


The motif in Stella-SRR677-Multi is 24″ in length and repeats twice across the width (44″).


Here are two patterns that feature Made With Love:

Churndash Court by Sassafras Lane.


Set Sail by Jaybird Quilts.


Whether it’s the focal fabric or the finishing touch, we can’t wait to see what you make with this new collection. Show us your Stella and tag us in your pictures, so we can see all your wonderful projects!

Mad for Mini Quilts


We love Sassafras Lane Designs‘ mini quilt patterns. Check out these mini projects featuring some of our favorite collections! Like framed art pieces, these mini quilts are perfect for decorating the walls of a living room, bedroom and sewing studio.


This bright turquoise quilt was made from the Mini Privet Drive pattern. Featured fabrics include our Wee Gallery Heart basic and Shadowbox— a collection of patterns and shapes in a timeless greyscale palette.


The Mini One Way pattern was used to make this arrow quilt. Featured fabrics are Polka Dot basic and Junebug— cheerful pops of geometric design in a spectrum of tutti frutti colorplay.


This quilt with fun, zig-zag edges was made from the Mini Canyon Boulevard pattern using Wildwood— a collection with neutral shades of khaki, grey, and chalky black that ground the vibrant bursts of gold, orange and a little pop of plum. This pattern measures 12.5″ x 16.5″. Given their small size, mini quilts are perfect for trying a new sewing technique or a new design idea!


The Mini Diamond Detour pattern was used to make the quilt above. Cute and geometric, this quilt features a trio of our basics– Positive, Net and Dress Stripe!


We especially love the ombré mini quilt that uses Mini Firelights Lane. It features an array of cool colors from our Net basic. As you can imagine, these mini quilts also make great gifts!


This cute geometric quilt was made with the Mini Wynkoop pattern using Rae Ritchie’s Mumseed Meadow— a collection that takes you on a winding nature walk through the dancing trees, collecting wildflower bouquets and fallen leaves along the way.

Tag #dearstella to show us your own version of these mini quilts. We can’t wait to see what you make!
