Inter Facility Coordination Failure
IFR flight plan, VFR conditions. Requested mht for direct hfd swbnd from mht. Originally cleared V106 gdm V229 hfd. Mht granted my request. I acknowledged and turned direct hfd. Changed frequency to ZBW. After few mins, ZBW asked if I was not receiving gdm. I advised of 'cleared direct hfd' and was told, by ZBW, that mht didn't clear me and I was to return direct gdm V229 with which I immediately complied. I had acknowledged, to mht, receipt of clearance direct to hfd and thanked him. I was not corrected/contradicted by mht.
