Clarissa Design Wall

Another Clarissa block is already finished! This block was finished in record time due to all the piecing I've been doing (which means lots of opportunities for leader-ender piecing). 

This is the block centre made of 4 QST blocks. It measures 4.5" and includes one of my favourite plaids.







Here is the growing block with the next round of brown homespun and tiny dot QSTs. It measures 8.5"
The last round of QSTs with an argyle print and a light tan stripe. The finished block measures 12.5"

I really enjoyed working on it, but when I put it on the design wall, it looked quite pale. And when it was put beside all it's friends, well it's a totally blah block.  That's okay... not every block needs to draw attention to itself.

Total triangle tally: 1,152!

I like the way some blocks fade in and out a lot; draws your eyes around I feel. this is a very pretty one..so soft and lovely What a great set of blocks you've made hugs, Julierose

I love your block. Once you have them all done they will all look wonderful together. They already do!

Katie said...

I also believe it blends in nicely and not 'blahhh'. It actually looks much like the lower left block. The outside border "reads" like spots. As Julierose mentioned above the blocks "move" with the different textures. Lovely.

Beautiful and such peaceful colors.

Lots and LOTS of Triangles. I find the Hourglass Units to be much easier to sew from the Bonus Triangles than HSTS. Your quilt is going to be SEW FUN!

This block will give your finished quilt more depth. Isn't that what we always tell ourselves? : ) But it is true!!!

I love these blocks together! How many are you planning to make? I have seen many vintage quilts where there were value changes from block to block. It just adds interest, and often it is what makes the quilt sing.
