Card Trick Quilt
The world of fabric quilting is a rich wellspring of inspiration with many traditional and modern designs that speak to our hearts and creative minds. Translating these for knitting needles provides so many creative opportunities for personal expression and a chance to create your own treasured heirloom.
All elements of this 12-block quilt are joined as you knit. Center L-shaped modules and corner squares are knit flat; the block border is knit in the round. Once all 12 blocks have been completed, they are joined using a 3-needle bind off and the outer edge is finished with an I-cord bind off. The only sewing required is a couple of stitches to join the ends of the I-cord edging.
As shown, two blocks are created in each colour combination.
The pattern includes a colouring page that can be printed out and crayons or paints can be used to try out different colour combination.

4mm / US6 circular needle 24” / 60cm long or size required to obtain gauge.
Two circular needles 60” / 152cm, same size as gauge needle or smaller (for bind offs).
4mm / US6 one DPN or same size as gauge needle (for bind offs).
2-2.5mm / US0-US1.5 one DPN (for picking up stitches).
