This arrangement of squishy colourful squares, alternated with a simple squares in a neutral shade made me think of the chequerboard pink and yellow sponge cubes of a Battenberg Cake, a UK teatime favourite from my childhood days. The cake version comes wrapped in a simple marzipan coat, with sugar sprinkles. So I made a border of simple stitches to match, with a dusting of picots along the edges. Link of the pattern is below!
