Choose Your Own Block-Along, 1/19/15

I am nearly halfway through the 100 blocks of Tula Pink's City Sampler! The main motivation is that I want to put away the mountain of red, green and white Christmas fabric.

I have ten main color "categories," ranging from really low volume white/green and white/red, all the way to saturated red/green and green/red blocks. It is working really well to make the blocks in "pairs," especially as the book is divided into "shape" categories. So it is a bit of a challenge to make sure all the color categories are well represented within the shape categories. If that even makes any sense...

I finished off the "rectangle" category with this block. Oh, look--some cute Laurie Wisbrun holiday wellies fabric.

Block 34:
Then I moved into the triangle category.

Blocks 36 and 37:

Blocks 38 and 39 (fun fussy cutting of that red and white fahric):

Blocks 40 and 41:
Blocks 42 and 43:
Blocks 44 and 46:
Blocks 45 and 48:
Blocks 47 and 49 (the colors are a little off on this picture):
And my work for the week:
