Paper Piecing
Part 1

Knick Knack block 9: A saguaro cactus to put on your Knick Knack shelf. Make two, one mirror image version for more variety. Finished sewn height of this block is meant to be 8 inches. Use a striped green fabric for the cactus for a realistic look.

This block is pieced in several units which are then assembled to form the final block. Remember: each section needs to have a 1/4" seam allowance added around it to allow assembly.

Here a full color larger version of cactus

Here is the full size block to print for paper piecing
