    All of the fabrics were multicolored, so her end result was just a beautiful blend of colors. Another student did a red, white and black D9P and she put a black and white square (multicolored) in each corner, a pure white square in the center of each side and a red square dead center. This made each of the patches have a small red square. She then turned each block a quarter turn to assemble. I hope this is clear, I'm trying to explain without the benefit of a pic.

    Wow, you're right, no directions. I didn't particularly care for the look of the quilt, so I didn't look any further. I did find out why they call it a potato chip quilt...betcha can't make just one!!! Cute.

    I like it! :thumbup:

    This would be a perfect award piece as a single block or wall hanging for the fair or quilt competition.

    I found this link Analysis of Winner's Circle

    I especially like the Bow Ties... made with 5 --3inch squares..(2 of one kind, and 3 of the other color..) It's becoming popular again to make these, instead of cutting the corners, and wasting material.. besides, it's got those little pickets to stick little fingers....

    Also like the new way of making flying geese, with the plastic rruler-type-things....(4 sizes can be made..) They all look fancy, but are easy, and lots of fun.. Diana O.

    I was able to complete the "Quick Trip" quilt by Eleanor Burns in just 18 hours. I worked on it a few hours each evening for 5 days and had it finished. I tied it thou not quilted. That would have taken longer and I had a deadline.

    Have fun quilting!!
