Bay Breeze // Octoplushies

Okay, how ridiculously cute are these little guys?! When we came across the Octoplushies pattern from the book Sew a Modern Home by Melissa Lunden, we knew it was the perfect project for Jack and Lulu’s Bay Breeze collection!

We used the sweet Octopus print for the body of one, with the purple Gingham on the bottom, and the minty Anchor Grid for the body of the other, with the Under the Sea print on the bottom. These looked so cute on our shelves at Quilt Market!

This is the perfect collection for your summertime projects, and it’s in stores now! Be sure to get your hands on some and do some summer stitchin’.

Happy Friday!

We wanted to pop in today to show you this stunning bag that was made using our Fragments collection + our Polka Dot in Peony.  The pattern is the Tourist Tote Bag by Sew Many Creations, and you can find it here. It’s great for showing off your favorite fabric! Our tote definitely makes a statement – we love how summery it feels.

This bag is SO roomy. Perfect for beach days, grocery store trips, or if you’re off traveling the world!

Fragments is in stores and online now, and we love the projects we’ve seen popping up on social media. Tag your photos #dearstella and @dearstellafab to keep us in the loop!

Introducing Net Flannel!

We love using flannel in our quilts (especially for the back of quilts!) so we brought our popular Net texture to this super soft substrate for you. Available in eight gorgeous colors, our Net Flannel print will blend in beautifully with your cozier projects.

Take a closer look at the colors below: Primrose, Blush, Mustard, Mint, Turquoise, Beige, Grey, and Smoke. We’re in love with this palette, and we have a feeling it will win you over as well!

Net Flannel will begin shipping to stores later this month, so be sure to request it from your local quilt shop or favorite online retailer!

Fourth of July // Slice of Life Pillow (Free Pattern!)

Remember our Slice of Life free pillow pattern? We made one that’s PERFECT for the Fourth Of July. If you’re scheming for some holiday decoration ideas, look no further!

We used Stella-370 Scarlet (Net), Stella-187 Indigo (Polka Dot), and Stella-37 White (Confetti Dot) for the center. These patriotic hues shine when set against Stella-187 Grey (Polka Dot).

This pillow was designed for Dear Stella by Jessica VanDenburgh of Sew Many Creations, and she stitched it up as well. We love her grid quilting!

We can’t wait to see your pillows. Happy sewing!
