A “Delicious” Potato Chip Quilt From Australia

image

I received this picture of this great Potato Chip quilt from my friend Cassandra in Australia this morning.

This is what she had to say: “I spent Friday and Saturday at the Canberra Craft and Quilt Fair. Lots of lovely quilts to admire and time to catch up with fellow quilters. Today four of us met up for tea and chat at my house. We exchanged news and views and showed and told. Kathy Johnson, recently arrived here from the States on a posting, has joined both the local quilt groups and was encouraged by several members of Queanbeyan Quilters to make a simple strip quilt. Today she proudly whipped out the finished top to show us, with the borders on and ready to quilt. We were all suitably impressed with both her industry and once again with how versatile this pattern is.”

Who would have thought when I posted my Potato Chip (Sunrise, Sunset) tutorial the influence it would be making far away in Australia?

When I saw this quilt I loved it. My next thought was it reminds me of candy – Liquorice Allsorts, a very British candy!

Thanks again Cassandra for another great quilt picture and story.
