potato chip quilts are fat-free

judy, of bagdad quilting supplies, set up shop for us yesterday

she also taught us how to make a potato chip quilt top, using 2.5 inch strips of fabric

her vibrant quilt top was a real hit and had an exotic, tropical ‘feel’ to it

mine was made from a christmas fabric jelly roll – I guess you could call it ‘rustic country

ruth went for soft teal blue and green, with a combination of 2 lovely fabrics (one of these featured a large print of roses)

sharmaine showed off her beautiful blue and grey design – she is in the photo, but you can’t see her because she’s hiding behind her quilt top

barb chose maroon/pink with blue – a stunning combination

we also enjoyed retail therapy with judy – after all, we had to buy border and backing fabrics for our new ufo’s

i couldn’t resist buying some of her lovely embroidery threads

we had a great time, and were thrilled with our new quilt tops

however, i have to admit that even though the potato chip quilts were fat-free (and calorie-free), the same cannot be said about the pavlova cake i made for supper …
