HST Challenge - Block 13 - Card Table

Posted by Liz K. on 5/9/2015
Block 13 is here... the center block of our quilt! If you choose to follow my layout! :D

For those who may be joining us tardy (don't worry, easy to catch up!):

Block 13, Card Table

Yes, I named this one! First of all, it reminds me of the traditional Card Trick block; second, it reminds me of 4 guys, sitting around a card table, playing poker and smoking cigars :D

First, as always, you're going to need to make your 16 HSTs (see tutorial link above). Here's the layout of the block:

Here are your two-HST components:

Make 4 of each

And here's the quarter block, made up of those two components, that will comprise all 4 quadrants of your block:

Make 4 of this block 

Now lay out your 4 blocks into the Card Table layout:

Point all four main fabrics into the middle to make a diamond, and you're set!

Now join them together into your finished block!

Check out my block edges on this one! Nary a trim required, it's almost perfect! Are yours improving too? I've made my blocks about 3-4 at a time, just to make sure I'm a few weeks ahead, and this latest set (blocks 10-14) have not needed to be trimmed. Love that! Wish me luck on blocks 15-19, gonna get to work on them this week!!

And here're my 13 blocks so far on my "design wall"!

If you don't have a design wall, but you do have a 60" x 72" space on your wall, this thing (it's a Fons & Porter felt design wall that just hangs on any wall) is totally awesome! 

Awaiting pictures of your block at [email protected]!
