I've looked it up on the Internet and became more confused.
I think it is an 8" square of fabric inside a 2" border with the tones alternating by block. That's it.
Unless you call a 1600" quilt a potato chip quilt, which some did.
Or it is kind of a crumb square inside a border. Or, or , or....
Anyone here know what a for real 'tater chip' quilt is? It's become a curiosity thing for me.
Never heard of it before, so I'm interested too. Hope someone knows. Pat
I saw someone mention it the other day and I didn't know what they meant. Still don't! Glad I'm not the only one!
Sorry I can't answer your question, BUT I bet you can't make just one! :-)
"We are all here.....because we are not all there."
Tater chip quilts came up for me not too long ago, but I can't remember what I was really looking for...had some computer problems since then so I don't know if I can retrace my steps enough to figure it out. Know it was a search for something else that I wasn't sure of the name.
Isn't it funny how we find ourselves so far from original goal when starting through a bunch of blogs? Call me "easily distracted"!
Here's a couple of sites I found on them:
We live in the home of the free...because of the brave.
The quilt shop near me has some on display. They look like the 1st website on Nicki's (nlk) post.
The ones shown on those links are correct. They are simple to make and kind of addicting.
Keep calm and carry on
Life is good!!!

I'm pretty sure it's a 5" charm square with pre-cut 2 1/2" strips sewn around - 2 short 5" sides, other 2 sides length of squares. super fast, and if you use pre-cuts, very easy...addicting like potato chips...
"It's bad to supress laughter. It goes back down and spreads to your hips."
The second link Nicki posted is where I got started on this quest. Then as I progressed I found the other patterns that were being called 'tater' or potato chips.
And, yes, each of the sites I visited said the same thing....you can't make just one of them. lollll
So we have a general consensus that the square with the strips around it are 'tater chips'? I can settle for that. Mystery solved.
And thank you.
Thanks for the links, Nik. The second one says it's an 8" square surrounded by 2" strips. Love it! How different the second one looks not using a solid.
