This was a great little afternoon project that I made for my granddaughter Jalaah. The quilt is 12 x 12 inches. The fabric used for the cake and the borders are vintage 100% cotton. The little string of hearts was a great find from a $1 bin at Walmart and then I added seed pearls to the hearts. As luck would have it, it was Jalaah's 9th birthday and there were 9 pearls and hearts. I used a blanket stitch around the cake and candles and a lazy meandoring free motion for the backround. I added a hanging sleeve on the back and used decorative stitching to add a string of pink hearts across the sleeve.
