nittany block party quilt top

I unpacked all my quilt blocks from my nittany block party and threw them up on my design wall. I became so giddy with excitement that I just had to snap a picture with my camera phone (of all things) and put it up on flickr.

I'm not sure what "Explore" is, but apparently my (horrible) photo made it there and is racking up views and faves like crazy.  Eeeks!  Why oh why did I have to take such a horrible picture?  Well, it's good motivation to get this baby finished and take a proper picture!  I'm *loving* this so much right now! Can't wait until it's done....but that may be a while.  I have big plans for the back as well, so I have quite a few more blocks to make.


  1. Well, I can see why this made Explore, but it is funny sometimes which pictures makes it there. Sometimes my worst photos (photography-wise, one is even a little fuzzy) and just pics of WIPs have made it to Explore, and the picture of the finished project hasn't. Actually, now that I think about it, my picture of the block that I made for this quilt made it to Explore, too. Face it, people just love this quilt block and how the white and Coal really accentuate the colors. It has inspired many people. Enjoy the compliment :).

    Can't wait to see what you have up your sleeve for the back.

  2. Sherri, Everyone loves this block. I know that I do. I finished up the quilt that I made using your idea. I feel sorta guilty about it being done before yours, but I am giving it away in June so needed to get it done! Thanks so much for your generous spirit and awesome creativity. I wrote about the quilt and linked to you on my blog, in case you are interested.

  3. I love this! I'm still trying to figure out how you did it.

  4. This quilt has really inspired me. Have you finished it?
