    what is a "chip"?

    I was reading the current Quilt Maker magazine, it is their anniversary edition, and they were talking about how things have changed over the years.

    At one point, they were talking about pre-cuts popularity or when it began (don't have the mag with me-sorry). And they said "chips, jelly rolls.....".

    Well, I know jelly rolls, honey buns, turnovers, layer cakes, charms, dimes, nickles, dessert rolls and probably a few more, but I have never heard of "chips"! What is that?

    Or, maybe my cold/flu brain just misunderstood what they said>>>>>

    This is what Northcott calls their 5" squares from the Stonehenge collection, actually they call theirs "Strips and Chips"
    which is the 2 1/2" Jelly Roll and the 5" Charm Squares.

    I am so lost... Most of those I have not heard of. Technology terms have hit the quilting world.
    Beware the SnapDragon... part of me has snapped and the other part is draggin.

    Chips are potato or grain based snacks, available in a variety of flavors. My current favorite is pizza flavored Pringles!!!! Hehehehe

    Thanks for the laughs, I was really getting down in the dumps -- missing family while still in Indy. I , too, had to look those terms up. Teresa

    well, 35 years ago, I knew what nickels and dimes were. After you finished them, you had your dessert. Just saying.
    Never outsmart your common sense.

    dimes are ten inch squares like layercakes
    nickles are five inch squares like charms and chips
    dessertrolls are five or sometimes six inch by width of fabric
    and crumbs are odd shaped leftovers that you just cannot part with

    BTW i luv Stonehenge.....

    I remember when charm squares were in all sizes, now the Moda people seem to have convinced everyone they have to be 5".

    those dimes and nickels will soon be called "jackson" ($20) and whomever is on a $50, sorry can't put my hands on one just now....ha,ha,ha. And who will be able to afford a "dessert roll", we will all be using "crumbs"............
