Amy's right Stephanie, these were nice and straightforward to sew up. And I always enjoy a string block - matching mis-matched colours and patterns is a fun challenge. Although I suspect I should have played with the arrangement of the right-hand block a bit more as this photo makes it look like there is too many "solids" together.
Your photo tour of your sewing room Stephanie was an excellent way for us to come up with fabric combinations that might suit. I hope you find that these reel blocks work.
