New Clarissa Block

Clarissa was a Superstar is my favourite quilt at the moment! I just love cutting up 1.5" strips using Bonnie Hunter's new Essential Triangle ruler (you can see the ruler in this post). And sewing these hourglass blocks together is so fun.
This is the newly finished block #7.

And here is the collection of blocks so far. Delicious!

For those who like math, each block has 144 triangles, so this quilt project already has more than 1,000 triangles! 
This project was inspired by the Quiltville leader/ender challenge and we have until the summer to finish it. At this rate of making approximately one block a month, I think my quilt will likely be 12 blocks (plus a 2" sashing and border).



Of course, block #8 has already been started. Here is the centre pinwheel block.
