I'm being incredibly indecisive about what block to make for March's Sew Pieceful Swap. I signed up for 2 spots and have to make 8 blocks instead of 4 as a result so subconsciously I want to make a block I REALLY like.
This one is called a "Winged Square". It's made up of 24 - 2" half square triangles and 3 - 4" blocks. I love how dynamic it looks when the center block has some of both colors in it. I didn't use a pattern for this block, just sketched it and dove in after seeing some on Flickr, but Amy Friend did post a tutorial awhile back.

I also found a blog post about using printable foundation paper templates for sewing 18 HSTs at once. I used them to make the HSTs for my first two blocks and so far, I have to say, it's WAY FASTER. You can find the printable templates here.
The broken camera issue has been resolved also. I just came into a Nikon D3000 DSL camera (shout out to my dad!) and I'm excited to start using it. I've snapped a few photos with it already but nothing quilt related yet. I'm really happy with it so far and can't wait to learn more using it.
