Deck Of Cards Quilt Pattern

This pattern is inspired by a classic fairy-tale where a Deck of Cards comes to life!!! The cards are laid on this quilt with some cards flipped over to reveal the “suit”, while other cards are showing the beautiful pattern backs of the cards.

This quilt is the perfect lap size quilt and finishes at approximately 68”x 83. The fully illustrated, step by step instructions walk you through each block construction with traditional piecing techniques.

Let's get creative! Just gather the supplies below, then download the pattern and letter labels. Don't forget to share your Deck Of Cards Quilt on social media using the hashtag #BSImakersclub and tag @beesewinspired.
