New Kathy Schmitz embroidery patterns to “fall” in love with (+ fabric giveaway!)

First Kathy Schmitz graced us with her exquisite embroidery in Stitches from the Garden; now she’s back with another season to celebrate in stitches!

Stitches from the Harvest

This best-selling author returns to celebrate the warm, welcoming hues of Autumn in Stitches from the Harvest. Inspired by the everyday beauty of the season, Kathy shares her spectacularly embroidered nature scenes, charming hand-drawn sketches, and beautiful watercolor paintings in page after page of elegant designs.

Give Thanks framed embroidery art
A peek into the pages of
Stitches from the Harvest

Create a needle keeper, pincushion, table runner, pillow, and more featuring embroidered leaves, vines, and berries. You’ll also find Autumn’s favorite woodland friends—squirrels, birds, and bunnies—frolicking among the pages. They’ll inspire you to start some seasonal stitching!

Here’s a peek at all the lovely projects you can make in the book:

We had the opportunity to film Kathy at Spring Quilt Market, and she showed us her method of transferring embroidery designs to fabric. Although she prefers a light box for the task, in a pinch she got creative and used . . . an iPad!

We’re thrilled to have Kathy here at Stitch This! as a guest writer today to tell us more about her love of autumn.

But first . . .


FABRIC GIVEAWAY! Our friends at Moda Fabrics sent us a beautiful bundle of Kathy Schmitz’s latest fabric line, Oak Grove Lane, so we could give it to one lucky winner. (Shhh . . . Kathy’s latest line isn’t even officially available until November!)

Learn how you can win the bundle plus a copy of Stitches from the Harvest at the end of this post.


Kathy SchmitzGrowing up in Oregon I loved every season; sweaters in the winter, fresh-cut grass in the spring, sprinklers in the summer, and then there was fall. The smell of a new box of crayons, the crunch of leaves underfoot, and long evening shadows still bring peace to my soul. Not to mention those sweet little acorns! To this day I have a hard time walking by an acorn without picking it up.

The embroidery projects in Stitches from the Harvest were all created with these memories in mind. Little projects, like the Black Satin Sachet and the Plentiful Coat Pin, are small enough to stitch in a couple of evenings.  Projects like these are great for gifts!

I can never have too many cute ways to carry my sewing notions. I designed the Nutty’s Nest Notion Keep with practical pockets on the inside and my take of a Robin Hood squirrel on the outside. The zippered Nature’s Finest Pouches are just the right size for storing small sewing projects too. There are three zippered pouch embroidery designs to choose from—a feather, oak leaf and acorn, and a fall berry branch. Or stitch all three!

Having small projects satisfies my need for quick gratification, but I also love to have a larger project in the works. I like to know I have something I can pick up and stitch whenever the mood may strike. One of the bigger projects in Stitches from the Harvest is the Gather Together Runner. This table runner features my favorite fall treats. Of course, there must be acorns and Chinese Lantern plants. The design is finished with the addition of a fall harvest of pears, figs, pomegranates, and blackberries.

This table runner is also a great way to use a variety of embroidery stitches—satin, stem, seed, wagon wheel, fern, and fly, to name a few.

When I’m not stitching, I’m drawing and painting. I hope you enjoy the preliminary sketches for the projects and my watercolor paintings included in Stitches from the Harvest.

    —Kris on September 25, 2017

    —Deb on September 25, 2017
  • I love embroidery, my gram used to teach me on "stand cloths" when I was little, I’ve always appreciated all the beautiful stitchery on handcrafted things. I really enjoy the art of learning new stitches, I’m working on a seahorse project right now, probably going to incorporate those blocks into a small quilt.

    —Lou Wagner on September 25, 2017
  • I love embroidery and am still learning! My mother introduced me and my three sisters to embroidery and I fell in love! Would love to have this book to add to my embroidery education – the colors and subjects are just charming. And love, love, love the fabrics – the book and fabrics just proclaim "it’s fall y’all!"

    —Celene on September 25, 2017
  • I love embroidery and still learning. What cute/lovely patterns.

    —Colette on September 25, 2017
  • I can embroider nicely many stitches, but others need work. Trying to satin stitch circles perfectly always has me frustrated, and removing stitches to try again and again. There are many stitches I haven’t learned yet.

    Judy Garling on September 25, 2017
  • I want to learn how to embroider.

    —trina on September 25, 2017
  • To keep my busy fingers out of mischief, my grandmother taught me to embroider a tea towel for my mother. I hated it! I kept pulling the needle out of the thread, the thread would knot, my stitches never satisfied my teacher. Then when my first grandson was born, I embroidered a horse, edged it with quilting, and made it into a pillow for his room. Now, I am continually looking for new projects and techniques.

    —Patricia Tomes on September 25, 2017
  • I’m a beginner. I thought I had the French knot down then ended up with these strings about 1/2 an inch long with a knot on the end.

  • Lovely work! I have been embroidering since I was a young girl, embroidered lots of my hopechest before I was married, tea towels, pillowcases, dresser scraves, etc. Now I am embroidering baby blocks for a quilt which I will gift to someone. It is a relaxing hobby.

    —Verna on September 25, 2017
  • I love to embroidery and always learning. My younger sister LOVES squirrels. She has not had the best of health and I would just love to do this pattern for her for Christmas. The other patterns are really cute too. My favorite would be the bird.

    —Patti Beam on September 25, 2017
  • I love hand embroidery and am told I am very good. My feeling is, you can be an excellent stitcher but there is always something new out there to learn, so I am always a student open to new experiences in the stitching world. I love redwork, Brazilian stitching, counted cross stitch, the variety is huge with what you can do with a needle and thread. Love Kathy Schmitz’ designs, they just tell you "you have to make me because I am just so cute".
    Would love to win this, thanks for the chance.

    —connie b on September 25, 2017

  • Embroidery was one of the first sewing skills I learned in 7th grade as we were taught how to cross stitch on gingham fabric for an apron we were making. While my embroidery skills may be somewhat lacking today, my enthusiasm for this "sewing art" has not faltered over the years. I have fallen in love with Kathy’s patterns!! They are beautiful..just as beautiful as the Moda fabrics. It would be fantastic to win this book and the Moda bundle. I would be thrilled!

    —kaym on September 25, 2017

We travel 300 miles every 3 weeks for medical so I have a tote bag that says, I love Grandma so it’s fun to grab my tote and embroidery while we travel. I hope I win! Your book and embroidered projects look amazing.

    Carol Neufeld on September 25, 2017
  • I used to do quite a bit of embroidery as a child (baby bibs and pillow cases) but not much lately. What attracts me now is the idea of small carry along projects.

    —Enid Chapman on September 25, 2017
  • I’ve been in love with Kathy Schmitz designs forever. Embroidery was an early love but soon quilting became a passion. I had some Kathy Schmitz blackbird designs that I had saved until I knew just exactly what I wanted to do with them and they are now incorporated into quilted pieces decorating my 110 year old farmhouse. I think her designs are timeless and am delighted she is still creating and that embroidery is being rediscovered by young and old alike. I’d be thrilled to receive both the new book and the new line of her fabric. A dream come true for this long time admirer.

    sharon butera on September 25, 2017
  • My mother is an embroidery expert and she taught me how when I was young. Mom is retired now and spends several hours a day working on large challenging projects. I don’t do it often enough to match her level of expertise, but I do enjoy small projects. These designs are beautiful!

    —Libby M on September 25, 2017

  • I love embroidery, but only do a few stitches for simple redwork: stem, lazy-dazy, blanket, cross, French knots, and running; so I’d love to learn more to do the beautiful pieces like Kathy’s. PLUS… I need to learn all the tricks of marking patterns, thread thickness, and fabric choices.

    betty nelson on September 25, 2017

  • Oh, how I love embroidery 💞 I’m a quilter and heirloom sewer. I use to love to smock my grandchildren delicious little outfits. Sadly my hands are preventing me from doing much of that lately. I’m thinking if I were to maybe attempt some hand embroidery this may help. I have been teaching my daughter in law how to quilt and showing her embroidering stitches as needed on some of our quilts. We must pass along our craft to the next generation shouldn’t we? I am going to order this lovely book and would so enjoy these yummy fabrics. Thank you for sharing this peek with us.

Such pretty designs and FALL is my favorite!!

    —Marie Eddins on September 25, 2017
  • I just love embroidery. I always have a variety of embroidery projects going (plus some applique, knitting, crochet, etc). My husband requires flannel sheets, so a few years ago I started embroidering the cuffs of the pillowcases for him. It is now a tradition for him to have embroidered cuffs. He loves them, and I love to embroider them so it is a win-win! I’m no pro, so the designs are usually simple. I would love to put some of these fall designs on some pillowcases for him!! I just love Kathy Schmitz!

    Several years ago I was fortunate to come into possession of a redwork summer spread. It is 42 blocks of beautiful chain stitch work, dated 1893. I’m in the process of reproducing the blocks in different styles and colors. What a joy.

    —Candy Gawne on September 25, 2017
  • I have been embroidering for 50 years but I am still excited by Kathy’s designs and would love to start on some Autumn projects! I have a toy squirrel called Nutty who is 57 years young, I love him as I never had a teddy. I am sure he would like to see me stitching his namesake. X

So I guess I would call myself an expert, but I still mostly only use the stem stitch, so I have lots of embroidery stitches to learn. These patterns look so perfect, I would really enjoy stitching them!

    —kathy burkett on September 25, 2017
  • I feel I’m an intermediate embroiderer. My mom taught me when I was a little girl. I’ve done sets of dish towels, pillowcases galore. Then onto crewel embroidery. I’m working on embroidering squares of old fashioned girls to incorporate into a quilt. Embroidery is something I can take on vacations since it doesn’t take up much room. It is also something I can so at night while my hubby is watching TV. I can be in the same room with him, but can concentrate on something other than the TV!

    Diane Hinton on September 25, 2017

I met Kathy this summer when she visited a local quilt shop where I got a sneak preview of her new book and fabric and I can’t wait to get my hands on both! I love hand embroidery and I would say I am a aspiring expert. I am pretty good at it, but I still have a lot to learn. To get instructions from someone like Kathy is very exciting. The projects in the book are very inspiring and sure make me look forward to Autumn.

  • What cute autumn designs and that bunny is adorable! I learned how to embroider as a child with my mom and grandma as my teachers. I learned from cute little patches of cotton scraps with hand drawn designs from my grandma’s hand. As an adult, I sewed all the little scraps together as a baby quilt for my first niece. This gift taught me that the best gifts were hand made. I would say I’m an intermediate stitcher as I don’t embroider as much as I used to (knitting and painting have somewhat become an obsession).

But I seem to do quilting projects that tend to require a little bit of hand work and have recently discovered how much I enjoy English Paper Piecing. So, embroidery is always something I look at and admire quite often. Would love the opportunity to win.

  • I spotted Kathy’s new book several weeks ago and am in love with the little pumpkins in black painted embroidery hoops. They have cute little hats. I have much experience (50 years) stitching embroidery. I started as a little girl stitching pillow cases with purple flowers and green vines and pedals. My mother taught me. She kept her floss in a large red heart valentine chocolate box that was well worn. I was always so excited to get to open the box to see all of the pretty colors of floss. I would love for a chance to win Kathy’s new book and her new line of fabric. Is it crackle fabric?

    Hi Susan, this is a new line of fabric that Kathy has out with Moda, called Oak Grove Lane – it’ll be in shops and online in November. I can almost see your mom’s valentine box – what a precious memory. Thanks for your comment! –Jenny

  • These images remind me of the designs I stitched when first learning embroidery during my single-digit years, including a set of pillowcases my mother gave back to me when she downsized years ago. Embroidery is one of several stitch/fiber activities I enjoy, including incorporating embroidery into the quilts I make. I continue to learn with every project. Kathy’s book looks like a great way to further that education. Thanks for sharing! (janeherbst at roadrunner dot com)

I really like Kathy’s designs and look forward to my stitch club design every month. Last month’s fits right in with the ones in this book! Thank you for that video. I haven’t done it that way before, just taped my fabric to my design, but that seems like a good idea. Maybe my blocks won’t wind up backwards any more if I do Kathy’s way!

    These are such beautiful patterns; it is a treat just to look at them, and I would love to try them out. I can probably be described as a beginner because although I have embroidered some stitches, I could use some help with putting them together and executing the finishing techniques.
    Thank you so much for the opportunity.
