"12 months, 12 squares, and lots of fun tapestry designs. The 2018 Tapestry Square Afghan Project is going to be a fun way to try out the technique and make a fun blanket by December. August’s square is a tribute to the hottest month of the year - a cactus! Because, only a cactus can live through this heat ;) This square is a simple 2 color square which you can dress up with some spikes or leave bare, either style creates a cute square you can use on anything from a table runner to a tote bag or an afghan by the end of the year."

I know this Cactus Square was created with the month of July in mind, but I would love it if there were some other cactus shapes besides this stereotypical Saguaro. I have several children living in Arizona, so Id like to make some accessories for their homes. Do have a look at the posts about how to join the squares together. These methods will work for numerous other projects besides this tapestry.
