I have pattern tested quite a few quilt blocks. I rarely get around to turning them into something, but this cupcake block designed by @basil_and_ivy was begging to be finished!
The cupcake is paper pieced (I don't believe the pattern is available anymore). I used some fun scraps to make it, then decided to paper piece letters to spell "Happy Birthday." The letters are a pattern by @fromblankpages (the pattern can be purchased here).
I quilted it with loops and swirls using the darning foot on my Bernina 930 Record.
Now I have a fun placemat to use for birthdays at our house!
