FNSI - Results for January

I really enjoyed sewing along with everyone yesterday and I feel like I had a very productive FNSI. 

Friday night is the ideal time to use my sewing machine as there is no one around to disturb. That being the case I continued working on the Sparkle Punch Quilt by Elizabeth Hartman.

This is how my evening started...



And this is how it ended...



You have to sew two HSTs onto each white square, trimming down and pressing the seams in between.  The big pile is a mixture of blocks in the various stages (not focused enough to work logically through the block stages). On the left are the blocks which just need final squaring up and towards the back is my too impatient pile where I sewed all the triangles on without trimming and pressing in between, these need some unpicking.

I'm really enjoying making up these blocks although I'm not too sure about the final stage of sewing together the 500+ squares!

I also managed to binge watch several episodes of Scandal while sewing, I'd forgotten how much I like that show.

If you want to see what everyone else got up to during FNSI pop over to our wonderful host Wendy's blog.

That is going to be pretty when finished. Can you do it as QAYG in order to lessen the thought of working with 500+ squares at the end?
