This was a challenge for the quilt guild I belong to, Mid Michigan Quilt Guild. For their quilt show in October (click for quilt show details) they asked members to draw a playing card, gave us the dimensions of the quilts (18″ x 24″) and asked that we put the card number and suit in the corners, and the rest was up to us. I drew the eight of diamonds from the deck and this is the little quilt I came up with. I like flowers and decided to use some new material I had and made a flower with 8 diamonds as petals. The guild is going to display the whole “deck” of quilted cards at their October Quilt Show.
