New Block of the Month – Arcadia Avenue!

WHEW! We’re back from Houston – super inspired and excited for all that’s to come.

We can’t wait to show you all of the details from our booth at Quilt Market! Look for our recap right here on the blog next week.

In our space we had some gorgeous projects, some new collections, and also this show-stopping quilt: Arcadia Avenue.

Arcadia Avenue is Sassafras Lane Designs‘ brand new block of the month pattern. This quilt features 12 of our Mini Confetti colors, 3 Sunburst Stripes, 1 Confetti Dot, and our solids in Charcoal and White. We are absolutely in love with the rainbow effect! Shayla and Kristy used all of the colors in each block, making for a cohesive quilt that is still unique and fun. It’s seriously hard to pick a favorite block! Trust us, we’ve tried.


Here are some photos of the quilt taken by the Sassafras Lane ladies. You can see their blog post about Arcadia Avenue right here, as well.

(Fair warning: these photos will make you want to make this quilt.)

Shayla and Kristy also made some of the blocks from Arcadia Avenue into pillows for our booth at Quilt Market. Rumor has it they’ll be sharing a tutorial for these soon!

We are SO excited about this quilt! You can find more information about the pattern over at Sassafras Lane Designs, and you can pick up the pattern book here.  Please contact them if you’re interested in purchasing wholesale.

Be sure to ask your local quilt shop or favorite online retailer about this program!

It’s that time again… International Quilt Market is here! Quilt Market is trade show held twice-yearly for the fabric industry (unfortunately, it’s not open to the general public), and every fall it takes place in Houston, TX.

If you’ve been following along with us on social media (either on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter) you’ll know that we’ve been super busy getting everything ready for our booth! While at our warehouse, we may have poked around a bit in the aisles… It’s always so fun to see all of the fabric hanging out!

Make sure to come and say hi to the Dear Stella team at Market if you’re there! We’ll be in Booth #1336. There will be loads of quilts, pillows, fun projects, giveaways, and of course – new fabric!

If you can’t make it to Quilt Market, don’t worry! We will surely be posting updates to social media, keeping you in the loop on everything happening (and maybe some silly behind-the-scenes photos).

Make sure you’re following us on InstagramFacebook, or Twitter for all of our updates!

See you in Houston!

A Sneak Peek at Floral Daze

Quilt Market prep is in full swing, but there are still a ton of new designs in the works behind the scenes! Today we have a sneak peek at one we’re very excited about – Floral Daze.

Hand painted floral designs etched on delicate rice paper shine in an unexpected wash of soft yellow, shades of orange, and olive green. These gorgeous prints are tied together with classic, effortless navy and our simple Net print in a range of colors to mix and match.

Keep your eyes out for this collection, debuting in January 2015!
