Free Pattern // Silver Linings Quilt

Rae Ritchie’s Shadowbox collection is hitting stores now, and today we’re hoping to provide you with some quilty inspiration.

Enter: the Silver Linings quilt, our newest free pattern! Head to the Projects page for the download.

This gorgeous quilt, designed by Denniele Bohannon, is a fresh take on the traditional Dresden Plate block. We love how the palette is limited to just black and white – it makes for a striking quilt!

Check out how beautifully the prints from Shadowbox are highlighted, whether you’re looking at a white block on a black background or its reserve. This larger quilt measures in at 68 1/2″ square, and would look gorgeous in a bedroom.

Head to your local quilt shop and ask for Shadowbox by Rae Ritchie, or look for it online. We can’t wait to see your version of this quilt!

We have a treat for all you nautical fabric lovers out there: Jack and Lulu is back this season with a new collection of sailing-inspired prints.

Happy Friday! We’re stepping right into spring with our newest free quilt pattern, Garden Path.

The Garden Path quilt features the bright blooms from our Adelaide collection, which is in stores now. Check out photos of this collection here, in case you missed them!

This gorgeous garden-inspired quilt, designed by Kate Colleran, features two traditional blocks in a mix of our large-scale florals and a colorful array of basics. We are absolutely in love with the outcome!

Check out some close-up shots of the quilt below, made by Osie Lebowitz.

We love the use of our Leaf Geo print for the binding and backing.

And how gorgeous do these florals look here? This quilt is perfect for showing them off.

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!
