Some Little and One Big Finish

I usually don't make New Years resolutions and this year is no different, but I do have a couple of goals. The first is to just keep working through my scraps, I have so many! The second is to become a better quilter, both hand and machine. My quilting is just not that good. So with those 2 things in mind, I made a few projects this week, as well as finally getting a picture of one I got finished right before Christmas. First up is my own rice pack. I made some for presents but I really wanted one too. I also made a pincushion while delving into a charm pack I've had for over a year. The fabric line is Chirp Chirp.

Then I made a couple of snack mats. This one is 30's scraps and white on white. I quilted it in straight lines. 

This one is made from the same charm pack as the rice pack and pin cushion. The bowl is hand thrown by my very talented daughter. She has an Etsy store. you can see more of her stuff here. She works with local clays that she digs and processes herself, and most of her stuff is wood fired. Ok enough bragging about her!

I had this little cheerful duck square left from another project so I made it the middle of a little pillow, and put more duck fabric on the back. I don't have a pillow form for it. It will probably end up as a gift for someone, since there are no babies in our family.

And finally, right before Christmas I made the last couple of blocks and put the last row on this. I  know a lot of people have things called scrap-a-palooza, and I'm adding one more. If the name fits, right? This is queen sized, and the next task is to get it finished and on my bed.
