    So I'm making a quilt for my soon to be mother in law, and I'm stuck. I decided to use Card Trick blocks, but now I can't figure out how to design the rest of it.

    I have four card trick blocks, 20x20, and I don't know how I want to proceed... Any suggestions? Websites? Pictures?

    I'm never going to finish this by mother's day if I do't figure out what design to go with!!

    Help!

    I'm not sure what you are asking. Do you mean arranging, sashing, etc? I googled images of the card trick quilt and there were some ideas there. I've only done that block (12") for samplers.

    Wendi, are you stopping at the four 20" blocks? You could put them on point and have a complimenting fabric in between.

    If you scroll down the page a little, it show a detail of the on point card trick blocks.

    My card trick quilt is made with 6 card trick blocks and I made the alternate blocks black so that the trick blocks really stood out. This is for my son who "likes" black lol. But it would be pretty using a color that would compliment your blocks and let them stand out.
