    Rhonda, thank you so much! I desperately wanted to do this block, but couldn't figure it out. Your explanation and pictures are wonderful. HUGE HUGS!

    Thanks! I've been seeing this and have been trying to figure it out without buying a pattern. You've done it for me!!

    Once you are comfortable with my "Blocks" you can see how to construct a lot of traditional patterns using my "Blocks". You can learn to "see" how a pattern would go together using my Bostons or Star Points depending on what quilt block you are looking at. A lot of the traditional piecing with using differant templates to cut out each triangle and square can be intimidating. Once you try my methods you can save yourself a lot of aggravation.

    This Card Trick is a case in point. It breaks down nicely into 4 Boston Blocks 4 HSTs and a Combo 4 patch for the center. If you look at traditional quilt blocks you will see alot of them that can be broken down this way.


    I do realize my methods aren't for everyone but if they work for you then I am happy to help by sharing.

    Thanks! I aim to please! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: No I really have listened to all the comments people make and I do try to make it understandable. I use to skip steps that were obvious to me but figured out they weren't to others. So I try not to leave out any steps unless it has already been explained in the tute. As in cutting the pieces for the colors. I only showed the blue but did say you need to do all 4 colors that way.

    I've done this block on a larger scale, from a book, but this looks so much easier, and I can make it a mini without having to try and figure it out from my pattern. I just have to get back to my sewing room......SOOOOOOOON! You know I love your cut down method....so here we go again, adding to my list of "TO DO's"

    Rhonda, you are a genius! This has always been one of my favorite blocks, but after making one I thought I would never make it again. Now I can hardly wait to try one again.
    Your brain must be realllly big to think of this!

    Thanks Sue. It is just an extension of what I wrote in my Ebook. This is one of the traditional quilt blocks I showed that can be done with my methods.

    Thank you so much for taking the fear out of trying this block. It just looked so hard I never even tried it before. Now it looks doable./

    I'm glad you think so. You'll have to show us a pic when you get one done!

    I don't blame you. What a shame to miss those photo ops of your DGS. I'm going to try to get one later this year. But I want to be able to have someone teach me how to use it.

    I'm kind of an amateur photo bug. I love to take photos. My kids get aggravated with me at least my sons do. They tolerate it but my one son -middle child- I always have his wife twist his arm to let me take pictures! LOL Last time I just said tough! I am taking your pics! He has a tendency to throw his arm up at just the opportune time to block his face. I think it is a game with him! LOL He is like my one uncle. He just hates to have his picture taken. Or he holds a kid in front of his face.
    those grands grow up far too fast not to have a camera around!

    Amen... so MiddleSon is just going to have to humor Mom for the duration! His kids will be your justification... they will someday be asking him why he always had something in front of his face, so they can't see what he looked like. :) He'd best be thinking of a good answer to that one. It's called "divine justice". (Someone once said that grandparents and grandchildren had a natural affinity... they share a common enemy.)
