  • Fourteen cute kitty applique patterns – full size so there’s no enlarging needed
  • Reversed and exploded appliqué patterns to print directly onto freezer paper or fusible adhesive. No tracing! Every piece is labeled so it’s easy to assemble after you’ve cut it all apart.
  • SVG files for use with electric cutting machines.
  • Detailed instructions and lots of step by step photos – you’ll never feel lost or wonder if you’re doing it right.

  • Links to videos teaching you all the skills you’ll need to complete the project. It’s a workshop disguised as a pattern!

    Size

    Each block finishes at 10" square. The pattern includes detailed instructions for the following sizes. . .

    • crib (50" square - 25 blocks)
    • napping (50" x 60" - 30 blocks) - this is my favorite size for on the couch
    • twin (70" x 90" - 63 blocks)

      Difficulty

      I designed this quilt to teach appliqué – so it’s 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 cuddly cats quilt.

      I used appliqué with fusible adhesive and Quilt As You Go to make a super easy quilt - almost 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.

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

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

      • assorted prints for the appliques (get at least 7 fat quarters, but you’ll probably want more for variety)

      • 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)

      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.

      Yes!

      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!

      Maybe

      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. :-) smile@shinyhappyworld.com

        Cant wait to start sewing!

        I love the detailed instructions and all the patterns which were all included. I have to finish another project before beginning this cat quilt but I can already tell it's going to be a FUN project... I plan on buying more in the future.

        Excited to get started!

        This my next project. I have enjoyed watching the related videosand learning from them, sourcing materials and making my plans. I live in Canada near Niagara Falls and had to make a trip stateside to find the double sided interfacing! Adds to the adventure! I love the quilt as you go technique and think it is going to be a lot of fun to make and assemble!

        Happy cats

        Instead of quilting I am solar dyeing using the cats as a template. At the moment the sun here in Auckland New Zealand is not bright enough. Having another cup of coffee.
