Scrap Patchwork

Last month Stash Books released Scrap Patchwork by Sandra Clemons, a new quilting book with 13 scrap quilts blending the best of modern fabrics and traditional block construction. The patterns also include alternate color and/or size options, for even more quilty possibilities!

Sandra used Dear Stella basics for this gorgeous quilt featured in the book. Check it out!

We love this pixelated look, as well as the combination of rainbow colors with high contrast black and white.

Find Scrap Patchwork at your local quilt shop, or order from Sandra here. Happy sewing!

Now Shipping // Adelaide

Our spring-y Adelaide collection has begun shipping to stores! We are so excited for you to get your hands on this gorgeous fabric. And stay tuned – we have a beautiful *free* quilt pattern to share that features Adelaide! More on that next week.

In the meantime, we got up close and personal with Adelaide. The watercolor blooms make our heart sing! Take a look below, and then let us know in the comments what you want to make with this collection.

Adelaide coordinates with many of our Intermix basics. Check out this rainbow goodness!

Recap // QuiltCon 2016


Did you go to QuiltCon West in Pasadena last month? We had a blast sharing an exhibitor booth with our sister company, Timeless Treasures. Visitors to our booth worked on “helping hands” charity quilt blocks (full reveal later!), and had the chance to win prizes and grab a temporary tattoo.

Today we’re sharing some photos from our time at QuiltCon – check it out!

Here’s a shot of our booth before the first day. We had tons of fabric (in color order, of course) as well as sewing supplies for our charity blocks. Many thanks to Prym Consumer and Aurifil Thread for donating these supplies. And in case you’re wondering, those gorgeous quilted signs were made by Sassafras Lane Designs using various basics from Dear Stella and Timeless Treasures.


We used our Quick Zip Clutches to hold marking tools, snips, and scissors. They were the perfect size! Find the free pattern here.


Sewing themed temporary tattoos…

Along the back of our booth, we featured a bunch of mini quilts made by Sassafras Lane Designs. They released this line of minis at Quilt Market last fall, and they were a huge hit at QuiltCon! Find the patterns on their website here.


Once the show began, there was a flood of people who stopped by and participated in our charity block activity. We had a lovely time connecting with the community and getting to know everyone who visited!

We collected almost 200 “helping hand” blocks at the show, and these blocks will be used to make quilts that will be given back to the Pasadena community. Stay tuned to our blog and social media for updates, and check out last year’s QuiltCon quilts here!

We can’t wait to see all of the handprints come together!


Thank you to everyone who stopped by our booth at QuiltCon – it really was a joy speaking and sewing with you!

Introducing // Wildwood

We’re back with the full reveal of our upcoming Wildwood collection!

Wildwood brings you on a midnight stroll through a shady grove, where you’ll spy plenty of woodland creatures and wild plant life in lush colors. Neutral shades of khaki, grey, and chalky black ground the vibrant bursts of gold, orange and a little pop of plum.

We love these super-saturated colors in unexpected combinations!

Wildwood will be shipping to stores at the end of March. Ask for it at your local quilt shop or online!

In Junebug you’ll find geometric patterns and Scandinavian-inspired designs in punchy hues. The collection pairs up nicely with a wide range of our Intermix basics, to boot!


Stay tuned for photos of the collection, and ask for Junebug at your local quilt shop or favorite online retailer!
