Rise and shine friends! I’ve got two bits of news to share….

First, I have a new fabric collection that will be in stores THIS month! If you’ve been dreaming about winter citrus (mmmm that smell of an orange takes me right back to my Christmas stocking.) well, then you’re going to love this collection.

The new fabric collection is called SQUEEZE.

…as in, squeeze the day! squeeze the fun, squeeze tight to the things you love. It’s full of warm tones and things that make me happy. It’s the kind of collection that makes me want to rise and shine and make something fun.

There are oranges + lemons, ice cream cones, big florals and small ones, and and a wavy stripe that’s blowing in the wind. I hope the designs make you smile! In case you missed my previous collection—BUTTERSCOTCH—this is my second collection with FIGO Fabrics. They make wonderful fabrics and have so many other collections from designers that I love! You should check out the new lineup of collections coming out this year.

My fabrics and other FIGO Fabrics are sold in online shops, in local quilt shops,,, etc. Here’s a great shop that carries my collection and other FIGO collections.

Ready for the Second bit of news?? I’ve been quilting and designing patterns! Some of these will be in my shop this coming year, along with videos and blog content. And to start it off with a bang…..

I’m going to be the Guest Designer for QUILTY BOX for January!

Woohoo! Quilty Box is a fun quilting subscription box that brings you a collection of fabrics, a quilting pattern (in magazine layout), and other exciting goodies each month. SO….for January, I designed a cute quilt pattern for you to make with my SQUEEZE fabrics. That’s right. You’ll get my fabrics and my pattern all in the box! You can grab my box here.

There are two box options:
Classic Box (traditional quilting with the pattern you see above)
EPP Box, for those who enjoy English Paper Piecing quilting

You can buy my box separately with those links above.
Or you like it and want to try out more months, they gave me some discount codes to share with you. Just note that since my box was for January, it would not come with a new monthly subscription. You would get the new designers starting with February):

3 month subscription, use code: DW5 for 5% off
6 month subscription, use code: DW10 for 10% off
12 month subscription, use code: DW20 for 20% off
You can see all the Box Options here.

And check out Quilty Box on Instagram. You can see other boxes they’ve curated with previous designers. AND they have some sneak peek posts with my stuff!

Then just wait for your box to arrive on your doorstep….

Ready? Set? Quilty Box.
If you’re the one purchasing gifts for…YOU (heh heh. I know how it works), then I highly recommend picking one up!

Happy sewing Holidays 🙂

I receive a small affiliate earning from Quilty Box when you purchase through my links. But please no pressure to buy! I only want to share fun sewing and quilting products that I think you might enjoy.

    What size is that finished quilt? It’s so cute!

    • 2) Dana

      This a baby size quilt….so it’s 42 x 48. It’s a great pattern if you’re a beginner quilter up to advanced! And the instructions look so pretty in the magazine you get in the box, plus there’s other fun info there too 🙂 and fabric and other goodies!

    Adorable fabrics — love your designs!

    • 4) Dana

      Thanks Stacy! it’s been really fun to design fabrics.

  3. 5) Marie

    I LOVE yellow and orange ! I find your collection amazing ! I already see skirts and boy shorts and baskets with those fabrics. I’ll have a look at the shops you give to see if there’s a way to have some of them delivered in France 🙂

    • 6) Dana

      Aw thanks Marie! Yes….shorts and skirt and dresses would be SO fun!

    I cannot download and print the Star Quilt. Also, I tried ordering the Quilty Box for January and it ordered 2 and there is no place to edit or remove. Help!

      Hmmm. Sorry about the Star Quilt. You could reach out to Meghan from Then Came June and ask her about that. The pattern is from her site.
      And contact Quilty Box about the double order! I’m sure they can fix that for you:

    Oi linda, onde encontro os tecidos aqui no Brasil?São lindos, amei! Feliz Natal e Deus a abençoe. Eva

      Hi Eva, Check on Many sellers will ship internationally.

  6. 11) Hannah

    Is there anything I need to buy that is not included in the box to make this quilt? I just ordered mine and I want to be prepared as soon as it gets here! I’m new to sewing and I am so excited for this project

    • 12) Dana

      Hi Hannah. Yes. You’ll need 1 1/2 yards of “background fabric” (this is the white fabric you see in the quilt), 1 1/2 yards for the backing, 1/2 yard for the binding, and batting (44″x50″ or crib size). I’m excited you’re got the box! yay!!

  7. 13) Jenny

    Love your website and videos! It’s your fault that I got back into sewing after years of being away, LOL! Are you going to do any quilting videos? I made my first quilt late last summer, and now I’m hooked! I have five tops made, but now I have to get the batting in the backing to get the quilts finished. My husband also got me a new Baby Lock Brilliant sewing machine for my birthday, and that’s your fault, too.😄 Have a safe and healthy New Year!

    • 14) Dana

      I’m so happy you got a Brilliant! That’s exciting! And fun that you’re into quilting as well! Yes. I hope to do some quilting videos this coming year 🙂 Thanks for following along!

    Hi Dana, once again this looks amazing!! You got me into sewing!!!
    I got the box for Christmas. I’m rather new to making quilts. What kind of white fabric do you use as background? Kona or is it from the same squeeze collection?
    Really looking forward to making this quilt!!

  9. 16) Marisol

    Hi Dana!
    I got my baby lock because of you!! I love it! You have been quilting…… that’s why I haven’t seen you on you tuuuuube? 😂😂🤗🥰👏💃🧵
