    2015 - April Block of the Month - Directions & Discussion

    What's a better way to celebrate April Fools' Day than to play a Card Trick?

    This block looks scary. I hope I can pull it off. I had trouble with the maple leaf.

    What a wonderful block selection for April. Card Trick always plays well with other blocks if you use small print fabric.

    I really like this block. They show a blue & white variation at bottom of page & it's really an eye catcher.

    11 pages of directions scared me off. I think I'll substitute something simpler for this one. Sorry I'm such a scaredy cat.

    Tkhooper, if you'll go to the photos for BOM April, you'll find Patrice has added a fie with templates to keep the "cards" in 1 piece. If you'll print the layout sheet for placement it's really not hard to put together. I didn't see a pattern with that many pages but that would scare most of us off!

    My teacher is going to explain it to me at my next class on Tuesday so maybe I'll be able to pull it off. You'll notice my name has changed. I forgot my old password and had an old e-mail so I couldn't get help.

    I mis-cut the fabric. Doesn't that figure. I'll try again later.

    keep those Card Tricks coming, though.

    remember ...
    no deadlines for our blocks of the month.
