Choose Your Own Block-Along Monday, 9/8/14

I'm so glad you are here for this week's edition of the "Choose Your Own Block-Along."  Rene' designed a button for us, and we have a Flickr group!

I spent a little time working on the plan for the Tula Pink City Sampler blocks. I have a list of eight block groups, and the number of blocks which will be in each group. Here is the breakdown:

White/green (low volume): 10 blocks
White/red (low volume):     10 blocks
White/red/green (low volume): 10 blocks
Green/white: 10 blocks
Red/white: 10 blocks
Red/green/white: 16 blocks
Red/green: 14 blocks
Green/red: 14 blocks

The first color(s) listed in each group is the color that will be emphasized. So, for example: the blocks I made last week were white/green and white/red:

This week I did two blocks from the next group, white/red/green:
Here are the four blocks together:
I can visualize it all in my head. Hope it works out.

Don't forget to see what Rene' and Michelle have been up to this week.  We plan on having a linky, too--we just haven't decided on how often. What do you think? Weekly, monthly, once a quarter? We hope you join us--here, Instagram, Flickr!

Cindy, your two most recent blocks are just as lovely as the first set! You are so organized with your sampler plan. Maybe I should do something similar...have just been winging it so far....

Oh these are just absolutely adorable blocks! I'm going to enjoy watching your progress...

I think I am going to join your group. I love how your holiday blocks are looking.

Love the button! I have decided to choose a quilt from a book I just got - Fat Quarter Style - and join you. Depending on what everyone thinks, a linky every week or 2 would light a fire under me. ;)

I really like this idea ... Allows for individuality! Is there an introductory post the button should link to?

Love love love your blocks! Your fabrics are so adorable, and show well in these blocks. So fun to see them all together so far. I'm excited to finally have a project in mind to join along with you ladies.
