Card trick block video tutorial - Mysteries Down Under Quilt


  1. I’m a little disappointed at the lack of info in the email, the video on how to make the block is fine and easy to follow but how many blocks are we supposed to make ,do we make them with all the same colours and how do these colours relate to the colours suggested in the initial mystery quilt email

  2. Hi Sally, the variations at the end are for people who won’t be making the quilt. Just one block. If you need to make more I’ll say so on the post 😊


  3. Could you tell me the yardage and how many diff patterns/colors we will need for this quilt. If it was posted and I overlooked it, I apologize. Tks


  4. I like your way of making this card trick quilt block best of all. Nice and easy and good way to use up scraps. Thank you very much, Teresa.
