What You Get+-

The perfect collection of tone-on-tone blenders in pretty jewel tones, designed especially for use with Shiny Happy World applique patterns!

You can choose between bundles printed on two different base fabrics, each with different configurations and amounts of fabric.

Both types will be very crisp when they arrive. Just like any fabric, I highly recommend pre-washing before you use it. It softens up beautifully.

Petal Signature Cotton

Petal Signature Cotton is a high quality quilting cotton with a thread count of 120. 

When you use it for raw-edge applique with fusible adhesive, you'll get a nice, soft frayed edge - but it won't fray past your stitching line.

The printable width is 42 inches. This is the fabric base for the small bundles.

Organic Cotton Sateen

Organic Cotton Sateen is a very high quality fabric. The thread count is a whopping 220 and it's smoother and slightly lighter weight than the Petal Signature Cotton.

When you use it for raw-edge applique with fusible adhesive, you'll get almost no fraying. (You can see the results of my testing here.)

The printable width is 56 inches. This is the fabric base for the large and giant bundles.

Choose your option from the dropdown menu above the Add to Cart button.

Small Gemstones Bundle #1

You'll get one yard of Petal Signature Cotton printed with these twelve designs.

You'll get 12-inch squares of nine of those fabrics, and 6 x 12 inch rectangles of the other three. (You can specify which three prints you want less of in the Notes to Seller when you check out. If you don't choose - it'll be random.)

Small Gemstones Bundle #2

You'll get one yard of Petal Signature Cotton printed with these twelve designs.

You'll get 12-inch squares of nine of those fabrics, and 6 x 12 inch rectangles of the other three. (You can specify which three prints you want less of in the Notes to Seller when you check out. If you don't choose - it'll be random.)

Large Gemstones Bundle #1

You'll get two yards of Organic Cotton Sateen printed with these twelve designs.

You'll get one 18-inch square of each print. (For reference, a typical fat quarter is roughly 18 x 20 inches.)

Large Gemstones Bundle #2

You'll get two yards of Organic Cotton Sateen printed with these twelve designs.

You'll get one 18-inch square of each print. (For reference, a typical fat quarter is roughly 18 x 20 inches.)

Giant Gemstones Bundle

This is my favorite, and how I've been buying fabric for my sample quilts.

You'll get two yards of Organic Cotton Sateen printed with all 24 designs. You'll get a 9 x 18 inch rectangle of each design. (For reference, a typical fat eighth is roughly 9 x 20 inches.)

This is the most efficient way to get a wide assortment of fabrics in a very usable size.

Ordering and Coupons

When you order from me, your fabric will be custom-printed and shipped directly from Spoonflower, so it will arrive separate from anything else you order.

Shipping is free to anywhere in the world, but Shiny Happy World coupons can not be applied.

You can also order directly from Spoonflower. Shipping will not be free, but they have frequent sales.

The fabric price is the same either way - unless you have a Spoonflower coupon. If you have that - definitely order directly from them! :-)

Ordering from Spoonflower+-

The Gemstone Blenders collection is actually MUCH bigger than this. Every design is available in every color! The bundles you can order from me are just a hand-picked selection to make things extra easy for you. :-)

Use the links below to hop to exactly the part of the collection you want.

Shop the entire Gemstones Collection here.

That link goes to every single print in the collection. From there you can click on a specific print to get yardage, or you can use the awesome Fill-a-Yard feature to custom design your own bundle. (There's a video where I show you how to use the Fill-a-Yard feature here.)

You can also shop by color! If looking at the entire collection feels too overwhelming, try shopping one color at a time.

As an example, here are all the prints in the Amethyst collection.

 

The Gemstones Collection has six basic colors - each in shades from very light to very dark. 

Each of the following links takes you to a collection showing all the prints available for each color. 

You can also shop by design. Do you like those big chunky Os? (I call that print Spilled Cereal.) You can find all the different print collections here.

If you buy directly from Spoonflower, you also have the option to get all of these designs printed on a bunch of different base fabrics.

They look GREAT on minky, which makes a super cuddly quilt back, and great stuffed animals.

You can get a coordinating print on satin for super fancy quilt binding.

The Linen Cotton Canvas is my first choice for pillows - with the velvet a close second.

There are also a lot of garment fabric options, including comfy stretchy knits. 

So many options! I can't wait to see what you make with these fabrics!

Coordinating Fabrics+-

It can be so hard to match colors on a computer screen, so here's a little extra info for you.

The colors I used in this blender collection are exactly the same as the ones I used in the Monster Monster collection. Easy matching!

Want some coordinating solids to use for your background blocks? These have the quilting lines printed right on them for coloring-book-easy quilting. You can get light, medium, and dark versions of all the Gemstones colors. :-)

How Much Do I Need?+-

Below you'll find yardage suggestions for all my quilt sizes. (You can find more info about all my different quilt sizes here.)

Please note! This is just the yardage needed for the appliques. It does not include the background blocks, backing or binding.

These are for simple grids of square blocks - no sashing, borders, or half blocks. If you're playing with your layouts, you'll need to adjust accordingly.

Small Bundles

The small bundles are printed on Petal Signature Cotton fabric and come in 1 yard increments - enough fabric to applique 15-20 blocks.

For an Itty Bitty Baby quilt you'll need 1 yard.

For a Crib or Nap size quilt you'll need 2 yards. 

For a Twin size you'll need 4 yards.

For a Queen size you'll need 5 yards.

For a King size you'll need 6-7 yards.

Large and Giant Bundles

The large and giant bundles are printed on Organic Cotton Sateen fabric and come in 2 yard increments - enough fabric to applique 20-25 blocks.

For an Itty Bitty Baby quilt you'll need 1 unit (2 yards) - and you'll have leftovers you can use for binding and backing.

For a Crib size quilt you'll need 1 unit (2 yards). 

For a Nap size quilt you'll need 1-2 units (2-4 yards). You might be able to get away with one unit - but it'll be cutting things really close. If you're not going to be super careful with your layouts, or if you're going to be making a lot of chunky animals, I'd recommend getting 2 units (4 yards).

For a Twin size you'll need 3 units (6 yards).

For a Queen size you'll need 3-4 units (6-8 yards).

For a King size you'll need 4 units (8 yards).
