Our Fall Faves!

Ahh… fall. Our favorite time of year.

This week marks the beginning of autumn, and we couldn’t be happier. The leaves are starting to get crunchy and the temps are dropping – sweater weather is finally here!

To celebrate, we’ve come up with some of our fall faves. Check ‘em out below, and add your own in the comments!

♥ Who doesn’t love nature’s change in foliage to darker, earthy tones? Rich brown, burnt orange, mustard yellow… One of our favorite color palettes.

♥ There’s nothing better than enjoying a warm drink under a cozy quilt by the fire!

Check out this quilt made by Nicole from Modern Handcraft, using our fall-inspired Nutmeg collection!

♥ Getting ready for Thanksgiving and gathering family and friends around the table!

♥ Autumn is synonymous with “Back to School” – this time of year always feels like a brand new start. We love to get reorganized and help the little ones gather their school supplies in the fall.

Check out our *free* journal cover pattern below. They’re perfect for getting organized! These fit your classic composition notebooks.

♥ We’ve exhausted our bright summer wardrobe and now it’s time to stitch up some cold-weather clothes. We recently made this Darling Ranges dress using Ashe – with a comfy cardigan and tights this will be taking us right into fall!

♥ Trying out new soup and stew recipes. Yum!

♥ This is the best time of year for outdoor activities, from running and hiking to apple picking and exploring pumpkin patches.

Our Woodwinked collection makes us want to take a brisk walk in the woods!

Ashe // Darling Ranges Dress

Did you know that we’re offering a couple collections on cotton shirting this season? Ashe and the soon-to-be-released Sunday Morning (including Calico!) are all on cotton shirting, and we love the way they feel.

We decided to stitch up a new dress using the Blossom print from Ashe. To say that we are thrilled with the result would be an understatement!

The pattern we used is the Darling Ranges dress by Megan Nielsen – a super cute button up dress! We left the sleeves off of our version since it was still quite warm when it was made, but with a sweater or jacket this dress will take us right into fall!

This print from Ashe is especially nice for the transition into cooler temps, and the cotton shirting stitched up beautifully! It really was a perfect pairing with this dress pattern.

We can’t wait to see what you make – whether it’s a garment, quilt, bag, or other accessory! What are your ideas for this collection?

Ashe is in stores now! Ask for it at your local quilt shop or find it online.

Introducing… New Calico Colors!

Last season we introduced a sweet Calico print on cotton shirting in a couple of our collections. We loved how seamlessly they fit into the assortment of prints. They’re just the right amount of texture, but not so overpowering that they distract from some of the more intricate designs we love to work with.

This season we’re introducing new Calico colors! We’ve created a fun rainbow you can pick and choose from for your next project – and really, who can resist a rainbow?

(Not us!)

Take a look below at this new collection of color, and let us know which one is your fave!

You’ll see the new colors popping up in shops this November!

For now, all we have is this little peek into the brand new collection, French Lessons, but be sure to stay tuned. We can’t wait to show you each adorable print in this group.

Paris is reinvented in Jack and Lulu’s signature bold, illustrative hand and a palette of bright mint, pink, deep navy, and red. It has a certain… je ne sais quoi. J’adore French Lessons!
