Card Trick Block

Pat challenged us with the card trick block pattern.  You can download the pattern here.http://www.mccallsquilting.com/qb/mccallsquilting/pattern_902/index.html

Pat suggested to make this block into a simple table runner by making 3 blocks, or you could make it into a pillow. She challenged us to use our imagination to come up with a creative way to use it.

Here are the instructions:
