Thanks so much for sharing your projects with us! We absolutely love seeing what you make – it is so inspiring.
Have a great weekend. Happy creating, and keep on sharing!
Things are warming up outside *and* at Dear Stella HQ this week… We’re finally able to share with you our latest collection, Summer Love!
These beauties will begin hitting stores later this month, and we are so looking forward to seeing what you make. Our soft cotton shirting makes these floral prints perfect for spring garments and accessories, and we have several gorgeous quilts planned too!
In the mix are also four new Calico prints in rich, saturated colors. We love the Calico basic as a blender in our projects, and these are no exception.
We got up close and personal with this collection – check out the photos below!
We are loving this watercolor rainbow stripe! This will make such a fun quilt binding.
What will you make with Summer Love?!
We have a super fun project to share with you today! When Glamo Camo first arrived in our office, we immediately started dreaming up cute accessories that we could make in all of the colorways. And then, when we saw this tutorial from See Kate Sew, all bets were off. We needed Glamo Camo hats and we needed them NOW!
Thanks to the lovely Kate of See Kate Sew, who made these happy hats for us.
Here are some Dear Stella ladies rocking ‘em!
And here are the lighter tones.
Want to make your own? Head to See Kate Sew’s blog here for the tutorial. Glamo Camo is shipping now – ask for it at your local quilt shop or find it online!
Are you guys yearning for summer like we are? It’s hard not to dream of warm weather and BBQs when we are being consistently hit with freezing temps and snow!
Our friend Trish from Two Peas in a Pod shared a couple tutorials on her blog using our new Kiss the Cook collection (in stores now). We are over the moon for the projects she came up with.
First up are these adorable Hearts on Fire Hot Pads, which are such a fun alternative to the typical hot pad shape. These would make a great housewarming gift!

Trish also wrote a tutorial for a Kiss the Cook Table Runner. This will look great on your table all year round! She all but one piece from the collection, plus a little bit of lace. We love how the different prints looks stitched up together!

Kiss the Cook is in stores now – ask for it at your local quilt shop or find it online.
Are you starting your summer sewing yet, or are you in the planning stage? Here’s hoping that sewing with summer-inspired prints will help bring warmer weather!
Whew! We’re back from QuiltCon and all we can say is, “Wow.” Between the activity at our booth and all of the stunning quilts, we are sufficiently blown away by how amazing this industry is. Now that we’re home, we’ve gathered our photos and are ready to share a little recap of Quiltcon 2015!
Jessica from Dear Stella and Hayden from our sister company, Timeless Treasures, were in the joint-booth for all four days of the event. Here they are on the very first morning, right before the doors opened!
