        I designed this¬†pattern to teach appliqu√© ‚Äď so it‚Äôs great for beginners, and a fun and relaxing project for more experienced stitchers. If you can use your sewing machine, you have the skills you need to make this¬†cute¬†dragon block.

        I used appliqué with fusible adhesive and Quilt As You Go to make a super easy quilt - all done on the machine. The pattern also includes links to videos teaching needle turn appliqué and machine appliqué with freezer paper, in case you prefer those methods.

        Materials Needed

        You can find links to sources for many of my favorite tools and supplies here.

        For a single block you'll just need an 11" square of fabric and some scraps for the applique. You'll also need a sheet of fusible adhesive. I use Heat & Bond Lite for all my quilts.

        If you're making a quilt in one of my standard sizes, here are recommended fabric amounts needed.

        Crib Size (50" square)

        • 3¬†yards of a variety of background¬†fabrics
        • assorted¬†prints¬†for the appliques¬†(get at least 7¬†fat quarters, but you‚Äôll probably want more for variety)
        • 2 1/2 yards fabric for the quilt back (or 1 1/2 yards¬†Cuddle Fleece)
        • 1/2 yard binding fabric

        Napping Size (50" x 60")

        • 3 1/3¬†yards of a variety of background¬†fabrics
        • assorted¬†prints¬†for the appliques (get at least 8 fat quarters, but you‚Äôll probably want more for variety)
        • 4 yards fabric for the quilt back (or 2 yards¬†Cuddle Fleece)

          This pattern is not available for commercial resale. That means you may not copy and sell or digitally distribute the pattern or any variation of the pattern. 

          For example, you may not print the pattern and sell those copies.

          You may not use the designs in the pattern to create and sell an embroidery pattern, or acrylic templates of all the pieces in the pattern.


          You may, however, sell anything you make with Shiny Happy World patterns as long as you are the one making it.

          For example, if you're using this pattern to make pillows which you sell at a craft fair or in an online shop, that's great!

          If you're hiring out any part of the process, please get in touch and we'll work out a fair licensing agreement.

          For example, if you want to hire someone to sew those pillows, or if you want to have the design printed on fabric that you sew into pillows, those two scenarios would require a licensing agreement. Get in touch! I'm easy to talk to. :-)
