    I have aquired ( 35 ) - 15 inch white quilt squares with most of the hand embroidery already done on them. I got them all for $15.00 at a garage sale and thought I would finish them and put them together for a white with red stitching bed quilt. I am not sure how to go about finishing some of the embroidery on them and how to put them together. Can anyone direct me to a book or toutorial that will show me what to do? I'd appreciate all the help I can get. Thanking in advance

    No - some of the squares have most of the stitching already done, but there is still some that need to be done and then I would like to know how to put it together,

    You could use red sashing since you mentioned red stitching. You can find red/white small prints or solids quite easily. Before you sew them together it would be a good idea to square them up so they are all the same size. Find your smallest block and use that as a guide. Hope this helps. Can't direct you to a tutorial but I bet someone else here will be able to.
