Potato Chip Quilt Block

Rotary Cutting and AccuQuilt Calculators

There are many variations of the Potato Chip Quilt Block. Our block finishes at 12″. The only patch is the 2″ x 4″ finished rectangle, making this an easy block to cut and piece. Use Jelly Roll scraps or cut coordinated strips.

Construction starts with patches in the center and sewing continues around that.

A totally scrappy version is shown here. Below is a version using coordinated fabrics from an abandoned quilt kit I purchased.

Scrappy Potato Chip Quilt

The fabric calculator below give fabric requirements for the number of blocks needed. You can cut 2-1/2″ strips or 4-1/2″ strips. For the scrappy version shown above, cut the rectangles from scraps or coordinated strips.

For the two block variation shown above, cut half of the total amount of rectangles from the light fabric and cut the same amount of rectangles from the scrappy fabrics.

Rotary Cutting

For rotary cutting you can cut from jelly roll scraps. From yardage, cut either 2-1/2″ or 4-1/2″ strips. I suggest using the Stripology Ruler for fast and accurate cutting.

AccuQuilt

For AccuQuilt, there are two dies that cut 2″ x 4″ rectangles:

  • Die #55715 which is Shape #8 in the Mix & Match Qube 8″ block
  • Die #55159

Both dies will cut 2 rectangles at a time. Fanfold the fabric into 6 layers to cut 12 rectangles in one pass. Click on image for more information.
