The Moonglow Cactus, created using blocks from the Congo Star Mixer, was designed by Judy and Brad Niemeyer and includes six distinct Groups (A, B, C, D, E, & F). The quilt requires paper piecing and traditional piecing skills, including curved piecing, to complete.

Once you’ve finished this quilt, we recommend checking out Quiltster to see a variety of other blocks that could be used to create a similar design. Quiltster will give you yardage and an image of your unique design.
