Seaworthy // Shelby Satchel

We have the most adorable bag to share with you today. The lovely ladies of Sassafras Lane Designs made this messenger bag for our Quilt Market booth in May, and we couldn’t be more in love with it!

They used their pattern, the Shelby Satchel, and our Seaworthy collection. You can find the pattern over on their website here, and they even sell a coordinating hardware kit here – easy peasy!

We’re pretty excited that our mermaids made an appearance on the flap!

Seaworthy is in stores now! Have you gotten your hands on any yet? We’ve shared quite a few amazing projects with this collection – you can see them here and here.  What will you make?

Carousel // Check Me Out Quilt & New Color!

A few months ago, we let you know that we were bringing back a much-loved favorite – Carousel. Here is the adorable quilt we made using this print, plus some of our go-to basics: Confetti Dots and Sunburst Stripes.

The pattern is Check Me Out from It’s Sew Emma. Made by Becca Jubie, this quilt measures in at 40.5″ x 58.5″.

What little girl wouldn’t love this?!

We’d also like to introduce a new colorway for Carousel… this stunning indigo!

We think she looks beautiful with these coordinates:

You can see each color name and style number here.

Look for our indigo Carousel in shops and online later this summer!

Introducing Emerson!

We’re so excited to share a brand new collection with you today!

Fine lines in shades of classic indigo merge with crisp white and soft grey to bring you our sophisticated Emerson collection.

This collection will be shipping to stores at the end of June. We have an absolutely stunning quilt to share a little later using Emerson – and it’s a free pattern, to boot!

In the meantime, take a look at some more photos of this group. What will you make?

Seaworthy // By Sea or By Land

It’s definitely no secret that here at Dear Stella HQ, we love all things nautical. That’s why we were over the moon when Jack and Lulu came out with their latest collection, Seaworthy, which is hitting stores now!

We knew that Seaworthy would look amazing in the quilt pattern By Sea or By Land, by Lunden Designs, but we didn’t realize it would look THIS amazing!

As soon as we saw the quilt made up in the blue and red colorway, we absolutely needed to have a pink and green version as well!

Here’s a photo of the two Seaworthy quilts on our top shelf at Quilt Market. So adorable!

What are your sewing plans with Jack and Lulu’s latest collection? Seaworthy is in stores and online now!

Oh Happy Day! Flannel // Farsighted

There are a bunch of quilts that we displayed at Quilt Market but haven’t yet shared with you on our blog. One of them was our Nutmeg quilt, which we blogged about earlier in the week (see the post here), and we’re talking about another one today!

We adore this quilt. Made using our Oh Happy Day collection in cozy Flannel, the pattern used to showcase these prints is absolutely perfect: Farsighted from the book Quilts Made with Love by Rachel Griffith of ps i quilt.

The Farsighted pattern beautifully allows for larger prints to be highlighted, while still providing interesting movement and shape throughout the quilt. This is a great quilt for beginners.

This flannel quilt will certainly brighten up your home and keep you super warm and comfy!

Oh Happy Day! flannel (and regular cotton) are in stores now, and Quilts Made with Love is available as well. We can’t wait to see your version!
