You’re invited to discover a whimsical retreat of celebrating creatures and lush forest finds. Enter a magical world beyond the brush with Rae Ritchie’s new collection, Foxtail Forest!
We are so happy to announce that Foxtail Forest is shipping to stores this week, and we can’t wait to see what you make with it!
Here’s a word from Rae about her inspiration behind the collection.
/// Some of my earliest memories as a child were of my father reading to me. My all-time favorites were the stories involving magical animals that could walk, talk and go on adventures just like us.
Many of those memories inspired my newest collection Foxtail Forest, along with a trip to the Cascade Mountains, outside Seattle, taken several years ago. The beauty of the ferns, fungi and mosses we saw still enter my dreams from time to time!
On our trip, my husband and I planned to book a treehouse hotel to stay in, but as you can imagine, there was quite a waiting list. Lucky for the animals in Foxtail Forest, I can draw as many treehouse as I please! We hope you enjoy sewing with our furry friends, ferns and fungi! \\\
Foxtail Forest is hitting shops this month…
What will you make?!
We’ve long admired Latifah Saafir‘s Molehills quilt pattern. Not only is the layout unique with its layered, curved piecing, but it also allows for both large- and small-scale prints to shine. We knew it was a perfect match for our Wildwood collection!
How gorgeous does this quilt look on the streets of SoHo? The saturated colors from Wildwood glow, while the neutral grey and khaki keep it grounded. We can’t help but love that pop of plum, as well!
The Midnight Forest print made a stunning backing and binding choice… Swoon!
Many thanks to Kristi of Kristi’s Quilting for stitching this up. We are over the moon for her quilting! Take a look at some close ups below.
Find the Molehills pattern here, and you can find Wildwood in stores now!

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 introduced Jack and Lulu’s Rock Lobster collection last month, but did we mention that there’s more J&L fabric coming?
Meet Whale of a Holiday! Classic nautical motifs with a holiday twist. Jack and Lulu are back, Santa hats in tow!
We love all the prints and pattern in this group, but we must admit we’re partial to those adorable whales.
This collection is now shipping to stores! Be sure to ask for it at your local quilt shop or from your favorite online retailer.
