    It downloaded fine for me. It came up on Word. Thank you soooo much for spending so much of your time to show us how easy this block can be. I am going to make a quilt using this method. I printed out all your great instructions so I'm ready to go as soon as I choose my fabrics. Are you a quilting teacher by any chance? You did such a terrific job explaining this method that it made me think you must teach quilting.

    Thanks so much for this quick and easy pattern. I've been wanting to do this block for quite a while and you have made it easy. No triangles!!!!! I have been doing so many projects lately with almost all triangles, I'm sick of them. I always end up over cutting and then trimming them down to the proper size. This is wonderful. Any time there is an easier way to do something I'm all for it. Thanks!

    Where can I find a picture of the actual block or quilt? I think I could make it following your instructions but I'm one of those friends "okiepastor" was making reference to because I really need a visual. LOL Thanks Okiepastor for thinking of us.

    Wow, thanks so much Jan. This is amaizing! I always loved the card trick pattern and once did a few blocks, but the triangles were so time consuming that I never did do enough of them to create a top. Did you post a pick of your quilt? If you did I missed it in the tread. Again...thanks!

    Hi Jan so nice to see you and glad to see the tute. I am going to try my hand at it and see how it comes out, one never knows till they try right? :-). Good to see you!

    Thank you so much for the wonderful instructions with diagrams. The only thing missing was the size of the end triangles and the 4 corner blocks. How large should I cut them? This is a hundred times easier than the pattern I had with half-square and quarter square triangles. I knew the board would come through for me.

    Thanks, Jan. I've printed it out and put it in my "Quilt Fun" notebook.

    On another project: I'm trying to make a Checkered Dresden from MSQC. I bought the template and watched the video about 5 times. I reached into the stash and picked out a Jelly Roll from Northcott named Opal. I started sewing 4 strips together and my seams are great. But when I measured the 4 piece strip sets, I had anywhere from 7 1/2 inches to 8 inches. I need 8 1/2. So it was then that I heard the voice of my mentor in my head. "All precuts are not cut correctly". Somehow the: measure before you start....was not in my head. I got the roll about 2 years ago from ???? The whole project is just sitting there. Now what? The strips actually measure 2 3/8ths.

    I suppose I could rip out all the seams and sew them so that I get 8 1/2. What do you think? Marcia

    I was able to open it, and converted it to PDF. If you are able to do so, it might open for others who do not have microsoft word.

    Thank you, Jan for this easier way to make the blocks. Alas, your method was not available when I made this one in 1989 and only started saving pix a few yrs ago in computer. All triangles, so I never did it again. I love the pattern and will be using your method to do it again. Thank you again for your time and labor to share this withus.Name:  2015-02-02 13.59.37.jpg

    Thank you so much for taking the time to do this! I've always wanted to make Card Tricks, but it seemed too involved, what with all those triangles.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.
