Happy January 2020!

Happy January! It’s a new month, a new year, and a new decade! Woo hoo!

Of course we’ll continue to have a new wallpaper every month here at Shiny Happy World! Download yours below. There are options both with and without the January calendar, in case you want to keep seeing that koala face during other months of the year. 🙂 (You can get the koala applique pattern here.)

And here’s a look at what’s happening at Shiny Happy World this month.

Here are all the links to the things I mentioned. . .

North Pole Quilt-Along

Ready for a fun project? We’re having a Quilt-Along through the end of the year!

Build a house! Or two. Or a whole neighborhood. 🙂

I’m going to make a quilt – but you can make anything you like. Here are a bunch of free patterns that would work great with these houses.

Get the Shiny Happy Houses quilt pattern here.

Get the free signs to make North Pole buildings here.

If you want to use that shimmery white fabric I used for the snowy ground, you can get that here.

I’m also going to add sashing strips between my rows of houses, to make an extra snowy landscape. ☃️

Tag your photos #WinterCAL2019 and post them to the Shiny Happy People group. The Winter Craft-Along is a larger craft-along for projects that use any Shiny Happy World or FreshStitches winter or holiday pattern. There will be lots of prizes in lots of different categories – including a prize just for North Pole projects.

Happy stitching! I can’t wait to see your houses!

October Free Desktop Wallpaper

Happy October!

It’s Monster Month! Woo hoo!

I love monsters, but I try to keep it in check most of the time. I know you don’t want monster patterns every month!

But in October, I let loose with All The Monsters, All The Time. 😄

Download your wallpaper below. There are options both with and without the October calendar.

That monster is one of the blocks in the Mix & Match Monsters quilt pattern.

Isn’t that purple batik I used for his body fabulous? Batik is especially lovely for applique. It’s usually a very tight weave so it tends not to fray, and the little bit of fraying that occurs is practically invisible because batiks are dyed all the way through, so there are no white threads on the fabric back. Look for some colorful batik fat quarter bundles in the shop later this month!

Have a terrific month!
