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

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


    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 cars and trucks 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.

    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. :-)

      Such a great pattern

      I made this for my son, large enough to fit over his bed. He just loves it and it is great to use with so many options in fabric!

      Loreen Kelly

      As always another fantastic pattern. Easy to follow and great design

      Very User Friendly

      This is the most recent applique pattern I have purchased. It's going to be a quilt for my great grandson. I plan to use lots of cheerful colors. Every pattern is so easy to use and the explanations are very helpful.

      Carol Marianetti

      The applique patterns in this quilt are simple and yet offer so much opportunity for versatility. I am having so much fun planning it that I can't seem to find the time to start sewing! I love her patterns, and the tutorials are informative and easy to follow.
