I made this block for my green and brown quilt. Each day I choose a block pattern and make it. How it will come together will be determined later. I made a card trick block years ago and decided to try Mary Ellen Hopkins "cheating" at card tricks method. You make the block on point using only squares and rectangles and adding the triangles for the background around the outside. Tip your head and you'll see them. I didn't see much differenece in the difficulty making it this way. I needed to lay it out and pay attention to what I was doing. Anyway, I have always liked this block.
