Grand Illusion Mystery Quilt-Along {Clue #3 Finished!} + {Clue #4 Progress}

Clue #3 finished!  These easy strip pieced blocks were a nice change after the more intensive Broken Dishes blocks.

 Clues #1, #2, and #3 checking each other out - 320 blocks in all! 
Here's Clue #4 ready to assemble into blocks!  I forgot that we had 80 leftover HSTs for this step and was not looking forward to making Broken Dishes blocks again this week!  When I realized there were only 80 HSTs to make and 160 squares to cut I was so delighted!  This time I used squares rather than the Easy Angle ruler, and it was so much faster.
Christmas dinner tomorrow is later in the day, so I'll have time to assemble them.  We're making the desserts, and we made most of them today so tomorrow is clear to sew!  I say "we" because for holiday meals I get all the kids in the kitchen, and we bake together.  They will leave home knowing how to make pie!!
