Happy birthday!

Saturday, July 11, 2015

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 and colorful 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 pin basted the quilt with a polyester batting scrap and quilted it with loops and swirls using the darning foot on my Bernina 930 Record.

The binding was another fun print from my scrap bin. I wanted to include lots of bright colors since this will be used for celebrating!

Now I have a fun placemat to use for all the birthdays at our house!
