Another Scrappy Project

      Years ago when I was a new quilter my friend Wendy told me I should start collecting black and white fabrics to make a black and white quilt.  Then last year I saw the  framed coins quilt in the Julie Herman book Skip the Borders.  I made that quilt top.  It's on my 2nd quarter finish along list, because of course I haven't quilted it yet.   As I had lots of scraps I decided to make another black and white quilt as a for my local guild's community out reach program.   Here's the progress so far.

     I have lots of the lighter blocks finished.  These will be alternated with darker blocks, and should make a striking quilt.  I'm linking up with Nicky at Mrs Sew and Sow and with Leanne at She Can Quilt  for the Scraptastic  Tuesday link up.  This is my lucky place to link up as it's the only place I've won anything.  
     Two link ups ago I won the Mass Drop give away.  It was very exciting to have this arrive in the mail.

     Thanks to Leanne and Nicky for hosting the link up.
