My 365 Challenge Quilt progress

Hi everyone,
I've decided to participate in the 365 Challenge Quilt.
I started making the blocks and I'm all up to date.
Here are my blocks so far.

These are 3.5 inch blocks.
I'm using my blue scraps for all these blocks.
These are great to use up scraps.

I also made the January bonus block.
This one was more challenging.
It is also 3.5 inch block and will finish at 3 inches.

I am thinking of making these blocks again using some of my red and cream scraps.
The first 16 blocks are relatively simple and easy to make.
I am thinking of making the big quilt in blue
 and using the red and cream blocks to make small table top quilts.
We will see what happens.

Some slow stitching and some pouches......

Hi everyone,
I hope you are all doing well. 
I've been hand quilting my Old Tobacco Road quilt.
 It's not a fast process as this is a queen size quilt.
I'm just doing some simple hand quilting following the rows and such.
But its going to be nice and soft when its done.
I made a few more pouches for Christmas gifts.
I just didn't have a chance to share them before now.
Here they are.
The first one below was for my daughters best friend.
The two hearts pouch was for my sons girlfriend.
The Fallout 4 boxy pouch was for my 20 year old son.
I had fun making all these little pouches.
I'm excited to get the quilting done on this quilt.
I'm linking with Slow Stitching Sunday.

Have a great day!!
