Paper pieced; machine quilted.Artist's Statement:
The border pattern for the quilt is "Card Trick". However, it is the tricky cards with which we are dealt that are our challenges in life. Deal well with them with dignity and perseverance. Every hand can become a winner. My thanks to Jane Hall and Dixie Haywood who's book, Foundation Borders, provided the inspiration for this border design.
