Dear Stella

{ Lanikai }

There are at least two brand-new fabric companies on the scene, both focused on modern fabrics. I’m excited to meet them both at Quilt Market this weekend … I’m sure you’ll be seeing a lot of them around here on this blog. One of the companies is Dear Stella. Timeless Treasures is their parent company. They’re hitting the ground running with the eight new collections plus a group of solids and dots. Take a look at their website to see the full collections and get free patterns. Several of the collections will offer some prints on home dec weight and/or laminate substrates. The overall vibe to me is fashionable and feminine. What do you think? Which collection is your favorite?

    It’s not often that I love every single collection from a particular company, but I think that Dear Stella may have taken that title! The Lanikai and Palladium are GORGEOUS. When/where can I buy these?!

  3. Please consider this a personal invitation to stop by the Blue Hill Fabrics booth (#1430) and see what’s new for Fall 2011! We’re really excited about the fabrics we’ve done in conjunction with the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum, but we know you’ll love our trend lovers’ fabrics, too.

    I am considering whether, if I begin now, I can make a skirt in every single fabric in the Anchors Away collection by next summer. LOVE it!

  5. I loved Dear Stella at market…
