Card Trick Quilt

My friend Barb M. is also a quilter. Creating improv small quilts is her preferred quilting genre. Following a pattern to make a quilt is way out of her comfort zone. One of the first quilts she made was this one called Card Trick. Being made from a pattern is a bit surprising. Her color choices for the fabrics is not. Barb prefers muted tones.

When I received Barb’s quilt it was folded inside a plastic bag. After removing it, making a few repairs, treating it to a careful and thorough pressing her quilt was then loaded and quilted on my long-arm quilt machine. Using a coordinating, variegated thread I quilted a linear pattern on her project. This is how Barb’s quilt looked when it was complete.

Barb was very pleased with how her quilt looked. Thank you Barb for trusting me with your very first quilt. It was an absolute pleasure to work with you.

  1. Of all the first patterns to choose, I’m wondering why that one. It looks beautiful, her colors are wonderful together, and your quilting completes it nicely … but card tricks! I like the pattern, but I’ve never been tempted to make it. =)

    1. It was a class offered by Joann’s. Only supposed to be a 4 square. I got ambitious…. imagine a new to quilting person tackling the Card Trick pattern. Certainly a learning experience. Hah!
