The Card Trick Quilting Block



 grouping of card trick quilt blocks


The Card Trick Quilt Block is another 9-patch block that is most often used in sampler quilts.


The Card Trick uses color to create an illusion of depth.  It is a harder block to make than some of the beginning blocks, but you will not get confused if you make your patches in the right colors and put them in the correct places.

If you isolate these patches, you can see it more clearly.

Choose your patch size and your colors, and then follow the links to review how to make these blocks.  Draw your blocks on a piece of paper, and use crayons, colored pencils, or pieces of fabric to clearly mark which colors go where in each patch.  If you follow these steps, you won't get confused.


Sew your block together using good piecing techniques, and you are done.
