    Rhonda's Scrap Club Quilt Along

    Members in the Scrap Club asked if we could do a Quilt Along. So everyone can find the info easier and follow along without wading through all the Scrap Club entries here is a thread dedicated to the Quilt Along.

    I will post a new quilt block each week and show you how the quilt block is made. Some will be my designs and some will be traditional quilt blocks or may be something I find online and I will give credit where it is due.

    so come along and follow as we explore some ways to use scraps to make great looking quilt blocks!

    this week's quilt block is one I use alot.
    It uses my Boston Block shortcut. Name:  Boston Block --thumb.jpg

    Rhonda's NEW UPDATED Boston Block Tutorial - No Waste Methods
    You will need a 3 1/2" template to make this into a 12 1/2" quilt block.
    a 4" template will make a 14 1/2" quilt block
    and a 5" template would make an 18 1/2" quilt block
    If you like the minis a 1 1/2" would make a 6 1/2" quilt block.
    You can see below there are 8 Boston Blocks and 8 HSTs (half square triangles)

    You will need to make sure you make what I call mirror blocks

    Use up a lot of scraps making as many of these quilt blocks as you like! It is one of my favorites and I use it for alot of different projects. - quilts / table runners/ hotpads/ coin purses(in smaller form) etc

    I'm going to work on this as much as I can- had hand surgery this week and am trying to cut with my left hand. It's like trying to learn to write all over again!

    This is great! Thanks for posting this quilt along. I'm always ready to find new ways to use scraps. I never throw any bit of fabric away. lol

    I'll be following along, but have to do quilting on 6 lap sized quilts, which takes me a while, but that is my goal for the year, get those all done, so I can start again.

    As usual Katie there is no hurry. These will be there whenever you have time and want to work on them.

    count me in!!! I have to finish my scrappy quilt along first but this is right behind it. only the border to whip into place on that one (btw I hate it too scrappy killed me.. controlled this time phew). Your image makes it look so easy. reality for me is a whole different issue. I know I can do this. no problemo (as I will get the blocks wrong a hundred times but if no one knows then it doesnt count right?). thanks Rhonda get the word out at the regular club whooo whooo comeon over
