Welcome to February.  Lily's Quilts is having a meet and greet.  What have I been working on?  My Easy Street.  The last installment had 16 and 9 block respectively.  I am a wee bit slow and it takes me a while to get a 25 piece block completed. 

This is the offending piece of the block which I needed to make 16.  This was part of row 4 of the final block of the 16.  I had to pick this piece apart 7 times....yes I said 7.  I sewed it upside down, TWICE!  Backwards 3 times, and once with wrong side, right side together, then to the top before I finally got it. 

The offending piece was attached to this piece

And this little piece went on the end.  


All to make this strip that went in the block.

   I finally got it finished.  It had taken me weeks to get those 16 blocks done.  I feel like such a slow poke at times.  I had been lucky if I was getting 2 done a day, but I finally got the swing of how to set them up and actually completed 7 of those today.  Now I am working on the other block which it too had 25 pieces but I only need 9.  I have 7 of them sewn at least in the rows if not in the full blocks.  Maybe this top will at least get completed this weekend.

Looks good. You did the right with finishing the 16 blocks first.
