    And I was guessing a 2.5 by 2.5 square. A quarter of a charm which is a quarter of a layer cake, which is..... Well I was wrong any way. I like my chips with lots of onion dip but it makes sewing so messy. Really clogs up the works. Tee-Hee!

    All these food terms make me hungry!!! Chips, dessert rolls, jelly rolls, turnovers, layer cakes - designed by women for women!!!! My DH said that yankee candle can get men to buy their candles if they made meatloaf, pot roast, hot wings or bacon scented candles!!!
    If life gives you lemons, make a margarita.

    First, thanks for the answer what chip was! Glad to know I was not the only one, not in the know!

    Second, thanks SunlitenSmiles for explaining what some of the things are, to those who had not heard of them.
    To this I will add that the best place to remind oneself of what all the size are is the ModaBakeShop, under Bakery (see http://www.modabakeshop.com/p/bakery.html) also the Weights & Measures tab tells how to cut those pieces into common block parts.

    So I have a shoe box full of 4" charm squares. What do I call those? How do I adapt the nickle patterns. I think it is a conspiracy. Pass the salsa!
