Introducing // Lilypad

Today we’re introducing our Lilypad collection – a group of prints in gorgeous navy, punch, mint and creamy beige.

Lilypad embodies our love for watercolor and texture in rich colors, which certainly makes for exciting sewing projects! Take a peek at our photos of this group, and see images of the full collection on our website here.


Originally painted on crisp rice paper, each print is a stunning work of art and we are so happy to bring them to fabric!

We have a beautiful (and free!) pattern coming up featuring Lilypad. If you subscribe to our blog, you’ll be the first to see it!

Lilypad is shipping to retail stores this month. We can’t wait to see your projects with this collection!

Free Pattern // Pixie Patchwork Quilt

We have a pint-sized cutie modeling for us today! Meet Madison, the newest member of the Dear Stella team ; ) (Congratulations Jamie!!)

Maddy is showing off our newest free pattern, the Pixie Patchwork Stroller Quilt! Designed by Beth Rowan, this is an adorable gift for a mama-to-be.

This cute quilt is the perfect size to drape over your little one, especially in a stroller, and it’s quick to stitch. Plus, the pattern includes instructions to make ties at the top, keeping the quilt nice and secure. We couldn’t resist featuring our super-sweet Pixie Dust collection, and it’s backed in our Net Flannel. Which color did we use, you ask? It had to be Blush!

Head to the Projects page to download the *free* pattern today. We can’t wait to see your version!

Oh, and Pixie Dust is shipping this week! Find it at your local quilt shop or online.

Asuka // Canyon Boulevard

Asuka is in stores now, and we have been head over heels for the projects we’ve seen popping up so far. If you’re looking for some quilty inspiration for this group, we’ve got something perfect for you today!

Designed and stitched up by the Sassafras Lane Designs mother-daughter duo, Shayla and Kristy, we’re presenting Asuka in their pattern Canyon Boulevard. Find the PDF pattern here, or order the printed version here.

We absolutely adore this geometric design – it wonderfully features both the large and small prints from Asuka, and shows off the gorgeous colors. We said it once and we’ll say it again: this palette is the perfect transition from summer to fall!

Take a look at some of our close-up shots. You can’t miss the lovely quilting by Kristy, or the bias-cut binding!

To purchase our Asuka collection, stop by your local quilt shop or look for it online. We love seeing your creations, so upload it to Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook and tag #dearstella!
