FNSI and another Mystery!

Friday Night Sew In is hosted by Wendy at Sugarlane Quilts and FNSI for October has come at a very opportune moment.
In August I signed up for another Mystery Quilt with the amazing Heather Spence at Heather Spence Designs. This is my third MQ with Heather and I have to say that there is as much fun to be had with the facebook group as there is to making the quilt! What a wonderful group of ladies and Heather and her husband keep us all in line.
The Mystery started two weeks ago and so clue #3 arrived today - as I said, very opportune for FNSI.
I have not been blogging about this quilt as it is a surprise gift and so I don't want to give anything away. However, for FNSI, I am making an exception, without giving anything away! There is quite a lot to do for clue #3 and so I have only completed the first part today. This involves sewing together two 4.5" x 2.5" strips at right angles to end up with a 6.5" strip.

Of course I am adding the extra row of stitching to turn my bonus HST's into little squares.

It has been a beautiful sunny day here so have spent time in the garden rather than cracking on with the clue.
So tomorrow I need to get all these pieces pressed and ready for the next stage. There is a lot to do in this clue to be ready for next Friday.

Have a good weekend and happy stitching.
