it's true... I couldn't make just one!

Hi... Happy Wednesday!

I have had a "stash busting" party...

Yesterday, my friend calls me to catch-up after returning home from a long weekend get-away. She visited her favorite quilt shops and excitedly tells me about the pattern she saw worked up in one of the shops. She bought the pattern, raided her stash and made a small one in an afternoon. It is called a potato chip quilt because you just can't make one. She told me basically what it was. It seemed pretty simple, so yesterday afternoon I raided my stash.... and here are the results.

These blocks here on my design wall were finished last night. They still need to be sewn together and a small inner border added plus an outside border.

The colors are very fresh and summery.

This RWB 9-block version, I started this morning. It just needs to be quilted.

I am anxious now to see her quilt top to see if I came close to the actual pattern. I did not use the cutting sizes she mentioned. My blocks finished at 12 inches.

Break time! Have a great afternoon... thanks for stopping by.
