How They Shine - New Happy Quilting Pattern!!!

I am super excited to share all about my new pattern quilts this week!!!    So let's get right to it ;)  Here is How They Shine!!! I just got to teach this class at Garden of Quilts two weeks ago, and we had such a great time making these fun star blocks!!!    

The How They Shine Pattern can be found in my Etsy Shop in both a Paper version as well as a PDF version.  And it is on Special for it's release with PDF Patterns at $5.50 and the Paper Patterns are $7.00!  The patterns are full color and the paper version is in book format.  

How They Shine is such a fun quilt to make and is the perfect quilt for any occasion.   You could totally make a Holiday Version, or Wedding Quilt, or just about anything with this super versatile design.  Just change up the fabric and you will get a whole new look.   The quilt is made with HST's, Stitch and Flip Corners, and basic piecing so it really comes together quick.   And with the two layouts of blocks, you get some wonderful secondary patterns in the design.  

This version of How They Shine is made with the gorgeous Petal Song Fabric Collection by Corri Sheff!  I fell in love with these rich colors and gorgeous prints.   And since you use just one fabric in each block, it really shows off your fabric choices!!!   I really think you are going to love it and like I said, the sky is the limit on which fabrics you make it from ;)  

I quilted this version of How They Shine with one of my favorite's when I have a "grid" in the piecing.  I did some fun Wavy Orange peel that I echoed to add more texture.  I just love the way it makes these blocks just pop!!  I added a little curly q border around the outside of the quilt to make the "grid" work and it sets everything off just perfectly.  

And if you are wondering . . . haven't I seen this before, you are correct?   I shared the original How They Shine back in 2018 as part of the Fat Quarter Favorites book for Martingale.  But since Martingale has closed their doors, I know can release this How They Shine Pattern as part of the Happy Quilting Pattern Library and include multiple size options!!!  

So let's share those sizes.   You will find 5 size options in this pattern:  Baby, Lap, Twin, Picnic, and Queen.  So now you can make the quilts in just the right size for you, or make one in each size :)   I already have a baby size in the works, tee hee hee :)  

And that is my new How They Shine quilt and Pattern!!!  And yes, my Happy Quilting Patterns have a new look, but they are still filled with full color - wonderful illustrations to guide you along each step of the way.   You are going to have so much fun making these quilts ;)  And of course,  if you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to reach out to me ;)       

So are you ready to start making your How They Shine Quilts???  Pop over to my Etsy Shop, to pick up your Patterns.   Again, PDF Patterns are just $5.50, the Paper Patterns are $7.00,  until October 2nd :)    And while you are there, check out these other newly released and re-released patterns that are also on the same special ;)  Always good to save on shipping!! 

Oh, And when you make your How They Shine Quilts I would love to see them!!!  You can email me a picture at or add it to social media with  #happyquiltingwithmc ;)  I can't wait to see your Happy Quilting Quilts!!!
