So, aside from dGS, the only other bee/swap I've signed up for is Newbee Quilters on Threadbias. It was started by Angela at All patched up and is specifically for people new to bees or to quilting. The blocks are all relatively on the easy side, so I felt like I could do this one without feeling overwhelmed.
The first block, requested by Angela, was a scrappy log cabin in bright colors. I hope this suits her! I had fun digging through all my scraps to pull some bright, cheery ones to include in this block.
