    Hi, I am very new to quilting and would like to make table runners for Christmas using the Card Trick pattern. For as much as I examine the pattern and directions I get myself confused and wonder 1st if anyone has done this and has tips. 2nd am I taking on too much for a new quilter?
    I have been sewing for years but not quilting.
    Thanks in advance
    Joan

    MollieSue just made a card trick quilt for her son. Check out her thread with pictures of it. I'm sure she will answer any specific questions you have.

    yep- the quilterscache one is great. I've used that one many times. It's really not hard to do at all!

    It is an easy block, I find that if I kept a picture of the block right next to me that it helped me to remember what pieces to sew where :wink:

    Hi Joan, here is the one I just finished for my son. With the exception of the first couple of blocks, it was very easy! I agree it would be easier to keep a completed block next to you, or the picture, to be able to place them correctly.
    I think you could do it without any problems!!! I thought the pieces were very easy to sew together. :D
    And if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask me, or the others!!

    Eleanor Burns has a method for doing this called Winning Hand quilts. I have done this block using Quilters Cache pattern and also found it a bit hard to do, you really had to think it out. I actually used this as my block of choice in a Birthday Block swap and a few folk did say they found it pretty hard to do. The EB method broke it down into different steps and I did find that easier to follow.

    I love the card trick pattern, I use the pattern from my Block by Block book, so easy. I find that cutting out the pieces and laying them out helps to sew them together right. The first block I made I tore a lot of it apart. Keep your picture handy and the block piece laid out, work across one square at a time in each row (you should have 3 rows of 3 squares). It is an easy block to do after you do the first 1 or 2. Good luck and post pics when done.

    Does some one have the card trick pattern that is paper pieced or done in strips? I have spent the last two day trying to figure out this pattern...and it is for beginners?
