    I'm posting the pattern I wrote for making the Card Trick block using squares and rectangles, not a triangle in sight in the block.

    The block is then set on point within the top, with setting triangles instructions included here, too.

    Thank you for posting this--I can't wait to try it! So much less intimidating when you don't have to deal with triangles!

    The Word doc downloaded, but I presume all the spaces are for pictures or diagrams? Those are not here--just the first one. came up i the doc....I can do it with just instructions, but some of my friends need the visuals...

    I haven't printed this off yet, but I'm really anxious to try it.... I want to do one with brights and a black background. Saw one somewhere (probably here) and it was really nice! Thank you for going to all this trouble!

    I don't have Word so it won't download for me. Can you post it in tutorials on the board?

    Jan,

    Thank you!!! I'm doing a happy dance here...I just made one of these earlier in the week using the traditional pattern and had a difficult time with the triangles...in fact, I posted a request for help! Your directions and pictures are clear and concise - I'm confident this will be easier for me than those triangles :)- Thanks again! ... I'll be making another one very soon using your tute.

    Jan, thanks so much for sharing this pattern. I knew you said it was easy, no triangles except for being on point. I appreciate the time you took this. I have it saved and have printed off a copy.

    I wonder if you had a chance if you might convert it to a pdf file. I don't have word either.
