Double Irish Chain Blocks

I think I'm on my way - what you see here is an entire evening's work.  The first few blocks are always the hardest.  I did some ripping because one dark green was incongruent with the rest, and distracted from the light/green contrast. 
Here's the back.  I think I have all the seams going the right direction.  I found I need to use one needle setting for the more complex blocks, and a different setting for the simpler alternate blocks - which I'll do last. 
Ironically, I made up one "simple" block, only to realize I should have used light green.  Oh well, that's what I get for calling it simple.  :)
