Card Trick One

After getting two substantial quilts out this year, I've decided it's time to work on some small projects.  First up is a pair of pot holders.

I have never worked with quarter square triangles and I don't even have much experience sewing with pre-cut triangles so I was a bit nervous how this was going to come out.

But now I have the first one sewn up and am loving how it looks.  However, I wasn't feeling up to trying to match any more points after the first one, so the second card trick is still waiting for it's turn!

The first of two card tricks.

Linking up to MOP Monday and Let's Bee Social.


  1. Lovely block! I have been planning to try this pattern for quite a while, so I am hoping to find an excuse soon (probably after the holidays ;) ).
    Thanks for linking up at MOP Monday!!!

  2. great job. Like anything, do a few of these and you'll feel comfortable with the triangles. It's just bias to be careful with, and you did a good job!! There are ways to do easy multiple quarter square triangle blocks by the way without cutting individual ones. That's how I do it.

  3. Lovely - and your points look perfectly matched to me. I very much like your black and red colour scheme too.

  4. I love the cards pattern, your block is very pretty!

  5. Pretty colours - would match my kitchen nicely!

  6. Lovely combination of color and motifs! I love the "warm" feeling of this block.

  7. I think this looks great. It's so pretty, I would have a hard time actually using it.

  8. Lovely colors, they give this block a great look. My experience: the next block points are better and so much quicker. Goodluck.
