Shadowbox // McCall’s 6696

Shadowbox by Rae Ritchie is hitting shops this month, and today we’re sharing our first project made using this collection – a classic shirtdress!

We used M6696, a lovely shirtdress pattern from McCall’s, plus the Teeth Geo print in Slate – such a great combo! We cut the button band on the cross-grain for a fun little detail, and left it sleeveless as we’re anticipating warmer temps on the horizon. In addition to that, we left off the waistband piece – just a personal preference!

The patterns from Shadowbox work beautifully in garments, and the timeless black and white color palette never goes out of style. This dress can be worn all year round!

In case you missed it, click here to check out the rest of the collection. Which print would you use in a garment, and what would you make?

We’ll be back with a stunning *free* quilt pattern featuring Shadowbox. Stay tuned!

Now Shipping // Junebug

Junebug is starting to ship to stores! We love this sugar-sweet collection of prints. And paired with a selection of our Intermix basics, you really can’t go wrong.

Check out some of our photos of Junebug below. We are especially smitten with this large-scale textural floral. Used in large pieces or cut up into tiny ones, this would be super-fun in a quilt.

We can’t decide between the two colors this print is available in… how could you choose?

Lindsay from The Cottage Mama made this adorable dress using the grey version, and it’s even a free pattern.

Here are some more photos of Junebug. We can’t wait to use this Tutti Frutti print!

We hope you love Junebug as much as we do. Ask for it at your local quilt shop or find it online this month, and get sewing!

Surf’s Up // Sketchbook Shirt

Surf’s Up is a sunny and cute collection made up of beachy themes like surfer dudes and sushi rolls. We knew we had to stitch up something equally adorable to do it justice.

How sweet are these button-up shirts? Perfect for the little beach bum in your life! We couldn’t resist making one in each print from Surf’s Up.


The pattern used is the Sketchbook Shirt by Oliver + S – it’s both classic and playful at the same time. Next up: one (or five!) in our size.


We’ve been loving your projects using this collection. If you haven’t yet picked some up, you can find Surf’s Up in stores now.

Now Shipping // Shadowbox by Rae Ritchie

Rae Ritchie’s next collection, Shadowbox, has begun shipping to stores, and we are so excited to see what you create with it!

Take a look below at the collection at a glance. Shadowbox mixes elements of watercolor, graphite, careful linework, and hand-stamping in a dreamy neutral palette. We love this combination!

We see these gorgeous Line Diamond prints finding their way into many of your projects…

Shadowbox is printed on our lovely cotton shirting – it’s suitable for quilts and garments alike. We’re picturing a beautiful dress using this Watercolor Paisley.

We love seeing what you make, so be sure to tag your projects #dearstella and #raeritchie so we can get in on the action too!

Shadowbox will be popping up in stores this month. Be sure to ask for it from your local quilt shop or favorite online retailer.
