What You Get+-

I love, love, LOVE bright colors - but you know what I also use a lot of?

Black and white.

They go with everything!

Unless I'm making eyes and noses, I don't usually want flat black or flat white. I want tone on tone prints that will look natural with the other tone on tone prints I use for my applique.

So I created this collection of tone-on-tone blenders in salt (white and very light grey) and pepper (black and very dark grey). 

I love them!

If you're going to use these for background blocks for Shiny Happy World quilt patterns, I highly recommend the small fabric bundles. Each design comes printed as a 12 inch square or a 6 x 12 rectangle - the exact size you need. No waste, and no measuring needed. :-)

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

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. (You can see the results of my testing here.)

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 Salty Bundle

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.)

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

Small Peppery Bundle

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.)

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

Large Salty Bundle

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 Peppery Bundle

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 Salt and Pepper Bundle

This is my favorite for fabric I'll be using for applique, 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 for applique.

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! :-)

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).
