Free Pattern // Churn It Up Quilt

Rae Ritchie’s Mumseed Meadow collection recently started shipping to stores, and we are so looking forward to seeing your projects pop up.

Today we’re sharing a beautiful *free pattern* featuring this collection, and we think it truly glows! Designed by Denniele Bohannon and made by Clare Rip, our new Churn It Up quilt beautifully shows off Rae Ritchie’s color palette while also letting her prints shine.

Offsetting every other row gives a modern look to this traditional Churn Dash block quilt, and we think it adds lovely movement. Secondary patterns appear as white block backgrounds merge and morph into stylized arrows and a grid of bright white squares.

Download the Churn It Up pattern over on our Projects page, and find Mumseed Meadow by Rae Ritchie at your local quilt shop or online!

We love all the prints and pattern in this group, but we must admit we’re partial to those adorable whales.

We can’t resist the dreamy color combination of soft grey, petal pink, charcoal, and white.

Now Shipping // Bundle Me Up! & Costume Party by Wee Gallery

We have lots of new fabric hitting stores this month, and some of it is coming from designer Wee Gallery! Meet Bundle Me Up! and Costume Party – perfect for holiday sewing for your little ones.

Wee Gallery’s latest iteration of their popular Dress Me print brings woodland creatures to a winter scene. Bundle these little guys up in their Winter Wear!

We’ve made loads of fun projects with past Dress Me prints. Check out these wholecloth playmat tutorials from Nicole at Modern Handcraft: Dress Me Up Playmat and Dress Me Up Playmat Remix. These playmats would look super cute in Bundle Me Up! Plus they’re quick to stitch.

Also coming this month is Costume Party. It’s time to get the Wee Gallery creatures ready for Halloween! There’s a range of classic costumes, from ghosts to superheroes, ladybugs to skeletons. See if you can spot them all!

We took it upon ourselves to demonstrate the crossover between Bundle Me Up! and Costume Party. We’re partial to the owl dressed up as a witch – but that’s just us.

Find Wee Gallery’s fabric in stores and online this month. We are looking forward to seeing what you create!

Now Shipping // Mumseed Meadow by Rae Ritchie

Rae Ritchie is at it again! She’s back with a new collection, Mumseed Meadow, which joins the recently-released Shadowbox and last year’s Desert Bloom.

Mumseed Meadow captures the organic movement of lush prairies and secret woodlands, wildflower bouquets and autumn leaves.

Read on for Rae’s inspiration behind this collection…

/// Much of my work is heavily nature- and science-inspired – I am fascinated with the complexities and beauty of flora and fauna. Living in Minneapolis grants me a well balanced life of city living and nature, with many beautiful parks and trails that feel far removed from the bustle of the city.

Mumseed Meadow is inspired by an early fall stroll, passing by my neighbors’ dried gardens on the way to my favorite trail near my home, along Minnehaha Creek. Watching the leaves fall into the water and making their dance down the creek, studying new shapes for leaves, and being completely in awe of the natural wonders of nature. \\\

You can truly feel the movement Rae describes, from the falling leaves to the dancing maple trees and petal trails. We cannot wait to see what you stitch up with this! If you’re looking for the perfect quilt pattern to use with this collection, you’ll be happy to know that a free pattern is coming soon.

Go on a winding nature walk with Rae Ritchie and find Mumseed Meadow in stores or online this month! Tag your makes on social media with #dearstella and #raeritchie so we can follow along too.
