There is a love/hate relationship between cacti and my family. My youngest daughter, when she was around 2 yrs. old, fell into a bed of cacti and we haven't been the same since. But considering that it is one of the few things that grows so well here in our Austin heat, I decided it was time to decorate the inside of my house with a safe, quilted version of the little beasties. So here we have a paper pieced version of my new friends, with original cacti and pot designs for your quilting fun! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY paper piecing rotary cutting SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS finished quilt 30" sq.

Recommended with this pattern

  • 12 sheets, 8 1/2' x 11", vellum/interfacing/tracing paper for pattern printing
