I saw Jenny Doan's tutorial on the cactus carnival quilt and loved the look! I thought it would be a fun way to use up some of my batik stash. I used Moda grunge I had on hand for the background square and the cactus and pot appliques all came from my batik stash.
I was asked to make a Christmas-themed camper wall hanging. After completing the 18" square quilt, the gal asked for three more, and wanted them all connected into one large hanging. What a task! And I had only 4 weeks to complete it. She was happy, I am happy, and wiser. I'll start my "ask-fors" further in advance from now on. Whew!
