What You Get+-

I love to quilt my blocks without doing any marking first. It's like doodling on the sewing machine!

But not everyone thinks that's fun. :-)

And not everyone likes choosing colors for a quilt!

If that's you - I've got you covered. Now you can get quilt blocks in a carefully chosen color palette, all with the quilting lines pre-printed on them!

When you go to the collection on Spoonflower, you'll see all the different color palettes you can choose from.

Your blocks will come on a yard of fabric. Pop it in the washer and dryer, cut the blocks apart, layer with some batting, and quilt right on the lines!

Easy peasy!

No fraying and twisting in the wash.

No measuring needed.

The blocks are all 12 inches square - perfect for using with any Shiny Happy World pattern with almost no waste.

You can choose between several different base fabrics. Below I have details about my two favorites.

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, so you'll get 9 full blocks and 3 half blocks (perfect for names, dates, animal sounds and cute extras) in each yard.

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, so you'll get 12 full blocks and 3 slightly-bigger-than-half blocks in each yard.

Coordinating Fabrics+-

It can be so hard to match colors on a computer screen, so I've created these palettes to coordinate perfectly.

Gemstones

These are exactly the same colors as the Gemstone Blenders collection and the Monster Monster collection - bright clear tertiary colors. You'll find collections of blocks in dark, medium, and light palettes.

Animal Kingdom

These are exactly the same colors the Animal Kingdom Blenders collection - neutral greys and browns with a rust and gold added to the mix.

The Shades of Grey bundle is just grey blocks, ranging from almost white to almost black. 

Farmers Market

These are exactly the same colors as the Farmers Market blenders collection - a softer, slightly desaturated rainbow. You'll find collections of blocks in dark, medium, and light palettes.

Classic Rainbow

Very bright pure hues - especially the medium shades. You'll find collections of blocks in dark, medium, and light palettes.

Quilted Print Blocks

I liked these very much, I am new to applique and quilt as you go; these printed blocks helped me become familiar with quilt as you go and I'm loving it. Now I have felt confident enough to quilt my own lines, with help from your videos, so this is my newest hobby and I'm enjoying making quilts for my grand children so much. Thanks for your excellent fabric selections, patterns, and tips and tutorials.
