Cacti 647

Back in September, I posted an entry about working on a Christmas Cactus quilt.  It is a pattern I have meant to try for a long time, but I knew it would take a lot of effort.  It is paper pieced, a labor intensive, counter-intuitive technique that delivers OUTSTANDING results.  Good thing!  If it didn’t, it wouldn’t be worth doing.

So here is a photo of the finished product.  It is 40″ square, and features many tiny pieces of brilliantly colored fabric.  Six hundred and forty-seven, to be exact!

Would I make another one?  Yes.  For $500!
