Boston Block Pictoral

Here is a pictoral of how to make a Boston Block. If you have any questions you can email me at patchesbyr@yahoo.com

This is one of my Piece & Cut method shortcuts. This makes piecing fast and easy. You get dramatic looks with easy piecing!

 Once you've learned how to make these blocks you can use them to make quilt blocks.

 You can see my BOM for Nov in a previous post on here. It is 2 posts back.
 You can also find more quilt blocks I designed that you can use here -
    http://www.patchworkbyrhonda.com/pages/BostonQuiltBlocks.php

 This works well for using up scraps. If you don't like so much "waste" ( I reuse it into other blocks so no waste) you can cut out squares and cut them into triangles to make these. I think it takes more time to do but if it is important to you to not use more than you need then you can use the squares version.

Skyler

We were blessed with a new great grandson on Oct 23. He was born on his grandpa Nathan's birthday (my son). His name is Skyler and he joins a sister Alisha 9 brother Jayden 6 and sister Serenity almost 3. He is surely surrounded by love. He is my oldest grandson Cody's son.
Skyler makes our 5th great grandson and with the grandkids and grand in laws he is our 18th grandchild. God has been good to us! Praise the Lord!

God Bless you all today and every day! Rhonda

Another quilt block designed by Rhonda
This is a 12 1/2" unfinished quilt block
You can make it larger or smaller by using a different size template

This one uses my pieced blocks - Boston Blocks and HSTs(half sq triangles)

                                                  Handkerchief Star


                                      Here is the layout of the blocks

You will need a 2 1/2" template to make these. If you don't have one you can email me at patchesbyr@yahoo.com and I will send you one for free.

To make this quilt block you will need to make the "Blocks"
