    Is there an easy tutorial on the card trick block? The more I learn about making a quilt, large or small, the less I know. But with the help of this site I hope to keep learning.

    The easist card trick pattern I've found was Eleanor Burns.
    She does the strip method.

    Quilters Cache is also the pattern I used. For me, it was mostly just the first block which was so confusing. Once I get one done, and had it close to use as an example, it went much easier.

    You can do it with my Boston Block method.

    Here is the link for making the Boston Block. You would make 4 of them putting the colors where you need to. Then use the same method with 4 fabrics for the center block. Place the template on point to get triangles in the block. the corners are half square triangles and you can make them the same way with two pieces of fabric.

    I went looking for her method and didn't find it yet but did find some of her helpful advice and thought it was cute:

    Words of Encouragement for Less than Perfect Quilts

    You will never notice it from a galloping horse.
    Hang it high and keep it moving.
    Drive past it as 20 miles an hour and see if it looks good.
    You will never notice it from a moving train.
    You meant to do it that way.
