As a member of the Mid Michigan Quilters Guild in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan, we were given the project to build a deck of cards in quilts.  We were asked to draw a card from a deck of cards, and the only instructions were to make the quilt, 18″ x 24″, round the corners, and put the number and suit in the upper left and bottom right corners.  Other than that, we were free to do whatever we wanted, and WOW did the creativity show through on this project.  It turned out to be a highlight of the quilt show. I drew the 8 of Diamonds, the 3 of Hearts, and the 8 of Spades, and following are the quilts that I did.

Following are the rest of the quilts that were at the show, please browse through these and take a good look because they are pretty awesome!  Would love to hear your comments about them. We are currently trying to get them into the AQS show in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and displayed at the Midland Center of the Arts. Please ENJOY!
