Introducing Lila!

Beautiful Lila is finally here! We shared a sneak peek back in August, but today we’re excited to reveal the full collection.

Lila blooms with fluid patterns and geometric shapes in cool, midnight blue and amethyst. Calming pops of marine green and soft cream bring a fresh touch to the collection.


We had these fun puzzle balls in our booth at Quilt Market made out of Lila and Flirt. They are super adorable stitched up in these collections! The pattern is from the book Last Minute Patchwork + Quilted Gifts.

Here are some close-ups of the two larger prints in Lila.

Lila will be hitting shops in December. Ask for it at your local quilt shop or from your favorite online retailer. We have a gorgeous quilt to show you a little later using this collection… hold tight ’til then!

FREE PATTERN: “Follow Me” Pillow featuring Sunday Morning

We are so excited to share a super fun free pattern today, the “Follow Me” Pillow featuring our Sunday Morning collection!

These adorable pillows were front and center in our Quilt Market booth last month – they were perfect for showcasing the gorgeous floral prints in Sunday Morning, and we had to make a quilty version as well!

Click here to download the pattern, or visit our Project page here, and get started today! These would look darling in a nursery room, or even on the living room couch, and they make a great gift.

If you stitch up one of these cuties, be sure to use the #dearstella hashtag so we can see too. Sunday Morning is popping up in stores now, and we can’t wait to see what else you make. Happy sewing!

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!
