Here is the first set of blocks the NewBee created, for an example of the type of blocks they make

The NewBee is a quilting bee designed for people with beginner to intermediate quilting skills and anyone else who wants to join. We focus on simpler modern block designs, and ask participants to select blocks without curves, paper piecing or complicated construction—otherwise the sky’s the limit. The NewBee currently has 7 members and will run from May through December 2016.  For more information contact QueenBee Michele Tuck-Ponder via Bigtent.
