    I got a McCalls quilting magazine today (aug '08 issue).

    There is a gorgeous quilt with instructions and fabric yardage on pg 66. It's called catus flower. It look intimidating at 1st, but it's like a log cabin (I think?) as far as piecing. I love it!

    Have you seen it yet?

    Thanks for posting that URL Loretta. That's the reason I bought it. I don't subscribe to any magazines.

    I will make one, but have 2 in the works right now. It'll have to be in a month or so. I just got hired to embroider over a dozen baseball caps that need to be done by the end of July.

    Donīt get the mag, but funnily enough our Group here in Spain did a paper piecing project and I was so thrilled with the results I am thoroughly hooked (AGAIN). So I searched for more patterns on the web site for McCalls and I found that pattern for the cactus flower and it is beautiful, I also found others, so its worth looking on the site and guess what their FREE :D :D

    It's very pretty, BUT, I can't believe they'd instruct to cut all those pieces!! It'd be MUCH simpler done in strips!

    That fabric was just gorgeous, especially the border fabric. It's almost worth paying the whole $$$$$$ and get the fabric too.

    I've started on this cactus quilt yesterday. Here's 2 of the squares so far. I'm going to make it like the one in the magazine, but I changed the colors.

    Oh, it took me 6 hours to cut all those pieces. There are 805 pieces! Wow!
