First 6 Blocks

I got up early this morning to do a few blocks before I have to get ready for my routine Dr's appointment.  These are my first 6 12" blocks assembled, but not sewn together.  I will have a total of 35 blocks for the quilt top 60" by 84".  A generous sized couch quilt.
I couldn't decide whether to sort them by backgrounds or colors, but my curiosity about how many of each color I ended up with got me and I sorted by colors.  I had the most by far of blues, so I divided them into dark blues and light blues.  I also had quite a few purples and greens, but nothing like the blues.  The least was orange.  It surprised me that as much as I like orange and pink, I don't seem to have that many of them.  Is it because I don't pick them in the stores, or that the stores don't have that many either?
