Sneak Peek at Glamo Camo!

Hi all! We hope you’re having a relaxing week and enjoying the holiday season. We’re popping in today to give you a sneak peek at something super fun we have coming up in the new year.

A glittery spin on a classic pattern – Glamo Camo will be turning heads in 2015!

Here’s a peek at four of the colors we’ll be offering (there will be a total of eight!). We can’t wait to see your projects with this. We already have plans for a sweet baby girl’s dress and a cute bag…

Stay tuned to the blog for more info on Glamo Camo, coming next year!

Introducing Kiss the Cook!

Being knee-deep in winter, we’re not exactly able to fire up the grill and host a barbecue… but that certainly doesn’t mean we can’t get excited for our summertime sewing! Today we’re introducing Kiss the Cook, a brand new collection that will be perfect for the grill-loving guy or gal in your life.

We have some super fun projects planned for this collection, including a free apron pattern coming soon! Make sure to subscribe to our blog – we’ll be releasing the pattern right here in the next month.

We’re also envisioning potholders, tablecloths, napkins… And what about a pair of men’s boxers?! The possibilities are endless!

Kiss the Cook will begin hitting stores in January 2015. What will you be stitching up?

Mika // Navigate

We’re popping in today to share one last quilt using our fun Mika collection.

This quilt was made by Jessica VanDenburgh of Sew Many Creations using her new pattern Navigate, and it’s even more stunning in person. The star-like quilt blocks play beautifully with the asterisk designs in Mika, and Jessica did a terrific job of playing with the various textures in the fabric collection. We absolutely love the checkerboard effect in the background using Net in grey and beige!

If you want to make your own, you can find the pattern for purchase here and Mika is in stores now!

Here’s a closer shot of the quilt, which measures in at 42″ square:

We’ve been loving all of the projects we’re seeing on social media using Mika. If you make something with Dear Stella fabric, be sure to tag us (@dearstellafab and #dearstella) so we can see too!

Introducing Floral Daze!

Last week we introduced Fragments, and today we are sharing another new collection with you, Floral Daze – popping up in shops in January!

These designs were originally hand painted on delicate rice paper (except for our much-loved Sprinkles print, which we reinvented in a new color). In the color-drenched garden forged here, you can surely feel the painter’s ardent brushstrokes and flair – each piece tells a story.

We are so looking forward to seeing what you make with these prints! Floral Daze will undoubtedly make for vibrant quilts, bold apparel, and gorgeous accessories.

Floral Daze wouldn’t be complete without our popular Net basics. We added two new colors to the mix – Navy and Moss. These round out the palette, and we’re officially smitten.

Ask for Floral Daze at your local quilt shop or from your favorite online retailer, and add your makes to our Flickr group!
