I have enjoyed reading everyone’s posts re: methods to complete Clue 3. I have the Easy Angle ruler that I purchased when I did BH’s Allietare mystery but I think I’m going to try it along with Queenbarbiej’s video to see which is faster and most accurate.

I sat down to rip out the stitching on my strips... yes I used the tiny 1.8 stitch length since I was going to be cutting them. Lol, after doing one section about 5" long, I decided to forget that and just make them over. I cut my squares and got them all lined up, marked and pinned.. I'm doing the 8 at a time... today I will start sewing them.
I will find a way to use the strips I made, either in this project or in another one. They won't go to waste!

Hope you let us know what you decide! Maybe I need to try another new method.

I love tamales too. I have never made them on my own but once helped make them with my 3 sisters. We had so much fun and they were so better than most you get.

Finished my clue 3 HSTs today, using the 8 at a time method.... ears clipped and ready to go.

After using the 8 at a time method and BH’s Essential Triangle tool I have decided to continue my HSTs using her tool. This is what I discovered...doing the 8 at a time meant that I had to cut 6” squares when some of my fabric pieces (from my stash) were actually strips and not wide enough to get a 6” cut. Also using this method meant that I was having to trim every block to get an accurate 2 1/2 HST.

Using the Essential Triangle tool, I result in a nearly perfect 2 1/2” HST and only need to trim the dog ears from one end. I also found it easier to chain piece them one right after another rather than the 8 at a time method. Additionally, I was able to use short length pieces from my stash to get a good assortment.

I’m sure there will be times I will use the 8 at a time method, but for this project BH’s tool works just grand.

My plan was to do this years quilt mystery however I just had a major right shoulder surgery on December 11.I wonder if it's possible to print off each one of the clues that Bonnie gives use and start on the mystery quilt later. I can still search my fabric that I will need for the quilt because that takes only one arm and hand to search with.
