Fat Quarter Tuesday Giveaway – Dear Stella

on Nov 22, 2011 in Weekly Giveaway | 188 comments

Dear Stella is new fabric brand. Their Quilt Market Fall 2011 launch showcased 8 new collections. The booth presentation was modern, understated and fabulous. That big ribbon on the right is their Best New Exhibitor prize!

I’m enjoying the mix of modern, contemporary designs with a soft, fresh color palette.

The quilts and projects on display did an excellent job of showing the fabric in action.

The 14 Stella Dots are a ‘basic’. The colors coordinate to the collections but seem to be matching every stack we throw them into. Very fun!

Especially effective was showing different collections made up in the same project. The cathedral window pillows were beautiful. I loved that they paired contemporary fabrics with a traditional quilt pattern too. Fresh and modern.

Many of the projects shown in the above photos are available on the Dear Stella website. The Elephant was featured several weeks ago in our Saturday ChalkTalk newsletter, we received quite a few e-mails reporting difficulty in downloading the pattern. E-mail us at customerservice@pinkchalkfabrics.com if you experience problems and we’ll e-mail the PDF to you.

Two FQ sets are up for giveaway this week. A full collection set of Dear Stella Anchor’s Away (a little quilt market booty) and our custom Dear Stella Palladium FQ set.


I’m looking forward to a nice, long, relaxing holiday weekend. There are SO MANY AMAZING contributions to the Handmade with Love Tutorial Contest. I’ve got my eye on a couple. What are you going to make this weekend?
