My first Table Scraps finish for 2022 was a truly scrap happy endeavour, inspired by the backing scraps leftover from the Frosty wall-hanging I finished earlier in the month.
Snowmen with red scarves and cardinals -
I cut up as many 4.5 inch squares as I could and made 4 patches from red (leftover from Positivity) and blue (out of the solids drawer) scraps to make alternate blocks.
Some serpentine quilting following the seams, and another scrap of blue (this time in navy) from my solids drawer, and I now have a new mat for the small table that sits between our comfy chairs in the sitting area off our dining room.
This is placemat sized - 12.5 x 16.5
I've had a fat quarter of this funny snowman print on the shelf forever, and it turned out to be perfect for the backing.
It didn't take long to put this new mat to use!

Also this week, I made one new set of cloth napkins for us, using the red apple print and a fun text print for the opposite side. I've been making these since 2014, using this tutorial, and have made lots of them since then. They make great gifts!
Useful and also fun on the table!
