    The block finishes at 10" square. 


        This is an easy project - great for beginners - especially if you don't make the face black. The pattern includes a tip for making black eyes show up on dark faces. :-)

        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’ll 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’ll probably want more for variety)
        • 4 yards fabric for the quilt back (or 2 yards Cuddle Fleece)
        • 1/2 yard binding fabric

        Twin Size (70" x 90")

        • 7 yards of a variety of background fabrics
        • assorted prints for the appliques (get at least 16 fat quarters, but you’ll probably want more for variety)
        • 5 yards fabric for the quilt back (or 4 yards Cuddle Fleece)
        • 5/8 yard binding fabric

        You'll find materials lists for additional quilt sizes here.


          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!

          Talk to Me

          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. :-)

            Adorable Scarlet Skunk

            I love this! I just finished using it for a cloth book that I just started! So much fun!

            Very Cute Skunk, But…

            I love the skunk, I really do. However the more I looked at her the more I realized that I wanted her to look more skunk’ish. So I modified her head just a bit to make her have a pointy face. And I wanted her eyes & mouth to stand out more so she now has blue eyes and a brown nose. Very whimsical!

            Great Applique pattern

            I've bought many of these patterns because they are
            so cute and easy to put together. I sell my quilts at
            craft shows to help get orphans a school, and so many
            customers love these animals with the happy faces.
            The color combinations are also very attractive. Thank you!

            Great pattern!

            Thank you for these wonderful designs. I am presently making the wild life quilt as a baby gift and the designs are all easy to assemble and the finished quilt will be a sure win!!

            Cant download patterns

            I have been a “ customer, follower, admirer” for a long time. I have renewed my subscription each year to continue having access to your precious patterns. After you changed the format ( not sure of correct term), I have been unable to download any patterns. I am not sure what to do. It goes to a page saying you do not have any info for me. Hellp, please. I am behind on downloading. E Ann Ryan.
