    I have made about a dozen quilts and had started collecting the material as I found it for DH and deceided it was time to make his. He likes to play poker so here is what I am doing for his, it is the deck of cards block with a twist. I made the center of the block with the cards and chips material. What do you think?

    Deck of cards color way

    I am thinking to use the center block material as a 3" 1st boarder and then put a 5" boarder of the backing.

    this will be the backing

    Clever, very clever. I like it. Great idea playing off of the name of the block and tying it in to his "hobby."
