Birthday Cake Applique

Close your eyes, make a wish and blow! I hope all your wishes and dreams come true! Today we are sharing our Birthday Cake Applique.  Like all of our appliques, our Birthday Cake was made to fit on a 6″ x 6″ block but can be enlarged or reduced to meet your needs. 

I have already shared 3 other applique patterns in our February Applique Collection and you can find the link to the February collection HERE.
