Monday Design Wall -- Card Tricks Growing

I am actually working on a few Christmas items, however in between, the Card Trick Blocks are growing in number and my scraps are starting to show a dent. I also finished the 60 background string blocks for Bonnie Hunter's Mystery quilt.

For more design walls, visit Judy at Patchwork Times. I bet after the holidays, we will see the activity pick up again. For now, we all have our little secret projects.

Good progress on the card trick quilt. It does take a while for the scraps to show a dent. I've been cutting a lot of mine with the GO! cutter. I just need make sure I spend at least 1 day a week cutting them, but that kind of got lost with my current schedule.

That is A LOT of strings. I'm sure the scrap bin must be getting at least somewhat depleted by now. I've never seen a card trick done that way, but it is just stunning.

The card trick quilt is looking great. I am impressed that you got all the blocks done for Bonnie's mystery. That is a lot of blocks.

I love this twist on card trick blocks with all the logs. Very intriguing (and a lot of work!)
