    Dear Rhonda,
    I'm the one who posted about the embroidered blocks and let me say this I LOVE 'BOSTON BLOCKS" and the book. I have never had a quilt that not only was super fast to make 64 blocks in 2 evenings but they went together like a dream.
    I not only have the top put together but have just today before going to work ,machine quilted the baby quilt.Will post picture after I get the binding on and a label made for it.Thank you for inventing such an easy way of making those blocks,I am so glad that I bought your e book......

    Retta I am so glad it went so well for you! I will look forward to seeing your pictures! The Boston is the first one I figured out so I am kinda partial to it! I'm really glad you like it! It will be interesting to see what Quilt Block you used and the fabrics you chose!

    Rhonda, I finally got to using the templates that I received from you. Here are a few pictures of a bookmark and key chain/luggage tag I made. Note to self: don't try to put 2 side of a book mark together, it is kinda hard LOL. Enjoy and thank you again for the templates, I will be using them again.

    Those are adorable! I love little things! I am having fun with the Dresden Kaleidoscopes- I'll have to try the blocks.

    I had received some 2" or 2 1/2" squares that were already sewn together from my mom, i just added the piece on the bottom for the "big" triangle. I just picked what I liked since the sew squares were floral.

    Rhonda,

    Thank you so much for sharing. I'm heading now to make my first Boston block. Your directions will make it so much easier.

    So once upon a time I had this quilt in mind...it involved more than several (term used loosely) triangles. It was my second foray into making a quilt, and I got about 1/2 of it cut out, then stopped because, frankly, cutting all of those tiny triangles was just too tedious.
    You, friend, are wonderful for sharing this little shortcut. I may have been way past "newbie" by now, had I not given up and left all those pieces in a plastic bag (and subsequently gave away never to see the light of a quilting day again).

    THANK YOU for your insight.

    You're more than welcome. Quilting is about sharing in my opinion. I love to share!

    Rhonda, you always do a great job. I'm getting ready to search for your EQ tutorials. I'm taking classes at my LQS now to design the blocks for the Dear Jane quilt in EQ7 and then convert them into embroidery designs in 5D Pro. I'm new to both things so I'm really excited. I've been looking all morning for the D. Jane book on line that I can afford. I've viewed some of your tutorials before and they are easy to follow. Thanks for sharing with all of us
