Clarissa is on the design wall

My leader-ender project is growing by one more block this week . This is block #10 for my Clarissa was a Superstar quilt.
I really enjoy playing with value in each of these blocks, trying to make each one just a little different from the others.
Each block is made of 36 hourglass units containing 144 triangles. This is the 10th block, so the project how contains a grand total of 1,440 triangles!
Here are 9 of the blocks on the design wall... the photo just didn't look right with all 10 of them up there!

That is a lot of little hour glass blocks. Do you make them oversized and then cut them down? They look perfect in your blocks

It's looking great. I've never been a leader/ender person, but some of you are turning out the cutest quilts with your leaders and enders. Maybe I'll have to start.

Wow--fun!! Can't recall, do you plan on sashing them? By the spaces you have between them on the design wall I thought that might be your intention, but maybe not.
