I finally joined my first swap this month (the Make Mine Modern Swap) and I am so happy that I did! It's been a lot of fun so far. I did some work on my first swap item this weekend, and I love how it's coming along!
This is my first time making string blocks....albeit slightly non-traditional ones (and I refuse to paper piece them) but they are coming out great and are really fun to make! I see more of these in my future.
