K-5 Complete

I finished K-5 last night while watching TV. Somehow I managed to get the diamonds sewn together wrong and had to redo them. In one square the red diamonds were in the North-South orientation. In the other square, I had them going east & west. I have no idea how I managed to do that, but it only took a little while to fix it. I like this block. Not too many pieces and some hand sewing.

Today I have been working on one of the F blocks. It is paper pieced and giving me fits. I finally had to set it aside and maybe I will finish it tonite or tomorrow. So frustrating.

I have started cutting scraps to make a Pine Burr block. I want to try this and see how it goes together. I don;t love set-in seams. (Who does?) If I can make one without pulling my hair out, I may make a quilt.
