    I didn't know Farrells was still around - used to go there when the kids were young for birthdays and stuff - haven't seen that name in years. Wasn't there something like a pig trough or something grossly too-much in a huge bowl?

    Clue 2 Done

    Now on my way to the club car to check out the goodies. I will bring some jalapeno sausage, teriyaki sausage, cheese and crackers to snack on. May go well with some of Jaba's goodies.

    The blocks on the left were my test blocks using the traditional method. Way too slow. So I studied Judy's method in the last picture, calculated the strip width and finished those half square triangles in a jiffy. It takes longer to square and trim the blocks than creating them.

    I like the fact that Clue 3 will be posted next Saturday. It gives me a chance to complete the quilt top I am working on and perhaps I can finish quilting the first Mystery Train Quilt.

    Have not seen the Quilt Inspector for a while. Sneaky thing that she is, she may be stowed away somewhere. Be on alert you all. She does prefer dark fabrics as her hair shows best on it.

    They really make 1/2 sq triangles a snap, only problem is that your edges are on the bias, not much of a problem if you are sewing them with a straight grain, but slow sweing if bias to bias when sewn. But it's the only way I do them now. I think I had to get the ruler at my LQS, as the local Joann doesn't carry them.

    Doing mine this way also. What line did you use on your ruler on the sew line Judy and did you use the 7" strip with this method as well? I'm going out to purchase some different fabrics tomorrow so I can get started.

    No, it wasn't a 7" strip, and I needed 3 WOF instead of 2 of each to sew together, cannot remember exactly how wide they were but think I cut my strips 5" wide then you sew with a 1/4" seam top and bottom. There is a bit of a learning curve to it, I didn't buy the book and the sheet that came with the ruler only showed how to cut from 2-1/2" strips. There is a line on the ruler that you put the seam line on, each line says what size block you will make, each size is a different width. If your strips are too wide, you get a funny notch out of the upcoming block or else have to do an extra cut to stay away from it.
