Chips and Salsa?

This year I have decided that table runners are more veratile than full on quilts for Christmas presents , not to mention they take a fraction of the time :). I bought this bold bright stripe fabric on sale and could see the possibility of making tile-look squares. The result looked like mexican tile. Although the stripe was not designed or printed in a way that made the individual motifs equa-distant, the block still look ok. Good enough to house a big bowl of chips and salsa not to mention a plate of tacos.

Let It Snow!

Saw this pattern in a magazine while I was waiting in line to get fabric cut and thought it was cute, added some quilting etc. The center is chenile so it's really cuddly.
