    So do you cut bias strips to sew together first - or do you have all bias edges on your squares? I'm sure that this works, but it is so much easier - and less time consuming - to draw a diagonal on cut squares and then 1/4" out on either side for sewing lines. Bias edges can give people fits. To each their own!

    It sure helps to have pictures with the directions, makes it all come together.

    I just ordered the "Wonder Cut Ruler", which will make these triangles so easy.

    Your directions are just what I need. I have trouble with triangles and can't seem to get the edges to a point. This makes it really easy. Thank you.

    Rhonda thank you so much for posting this tutorial. I have only recently joined the quilting board and am enjoying going through all the archives, some 4 years after some posts. You are helping me hone my quilting knowledge. Which up until now has all been self taught so am thrilled to find tutorials likes yours
    Cheers from Downunder

    Nicely done tutorial.

    Showing the individual components of the big block is so helpful -

    When one starts to recognize the components in a complicated looking block - it makes them so much more doable -

    Thank you for all the helpfulness and generosity that you've shown the board(s) members over the years.

    help

    I'm actually stuck on this block. Its part of a mystery sampler I am doing. Is it easier to break it up into smaller squares? The very short instructions we were given did not mention it. Granted I am still a new quilted and this was a gift from a family member who thinks way to highly of my skills. Any help would be greatful. I did take it to the quilt shop that it was purchased an I felt very stupid. Sigh... I so want to make my Aunt proud and prove to myself that I can do this.

    Thank you Rhonda! Your tutorial from 3 years ago is still helping people. The links you posted to what to do if you have trouble helped me figure out what I've been doing wrong too.
    I cut myself a simple little 3 1/2" square template out of 1/8" plywood to match my unfinished block size and used your strip method to cut a couple trial HSTs. I sewed them together and got a nearly perfect point the first try with NO fumbling around.
    You made it easy to get things right.
    Thanks,
    Rodney

    Smile Boston Block

    Love this tutorial and the visuals that you have done. It is very well done and very easy to follow. I really like this block! Been looking for a block pattern to use to make a quilt for my oldest granddaughter and think I'll use this one. Thanks again for the tutorial.

Or you can make bunch of HSTs and or Bostons or what ever block and sit down at the table and play with them to see what pattern you get when you turn the in differant ways.

    BTW all of my pictures here with the exception of the directions for cutting the HSTs were done on my EQ5. Love love love my EQ5!!

    Hope you will see the possibilities in using this method of construction. Once you have the HSTs or Bostons or whatever made you can use them in any number of quilt blocks!!!

    This particular quilt block is one of my favorites and I use several variations of this one a lot in my business.

    Hope you enjoy!!! Wishing you all lots of sunshine and laughter!!!

    Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or problems!! Thanks Rhonda

    Just a great amount of detail. Thanks so much for a couple new ideas. I was recently at a retreat and a friend of mine was using a new tool (to me) called BlocLoc. Anyhow, it has a small groove that you lay along the seam line so the fabric will not move when cutting. Fabulous (I do not represent this company) but her cuts were precise and spot on. I plan to order some as she did very small HSTs and they were perfectly square.
    Aai, thank you for your well-done tutorial.
