I got the card trick pattern on line at About.com quilting for free and it calls for a finished block at 9". I am trying to use my scraps, but the pattern calls for 2 different sized squares at 4 1/2" and 3 7/8" and some of the fabric scraps are not that big. Is it worth making a down-sized card trick block with such small pieces? Or am I better off using this pattern as is with yardage? I thought this would be ideal for my scraps and wanted to balance the color pallette possiblly using four smaller blocks into one larger block and dividing it with sashes. I've never made this block before and it looks fairly easy, but I am not good at down-sizing blocks and trying to figure out that detail.
Maybe someone on the board who makes tiny sized quilts can address this issue.
Any suggestions, or should I just stick with the pattern the way it is?
