Chinese Coins

I completed the first top from our Chinese Coins project today. I had originally thought that we'd get 3-5 tops (including one from Becky from sections I'd sent her) but after making this top, I think I've underestimated how many quilts we'll be able to make from these donated coins.

You can see the fabric used for the borders and sashing below - a really cute heart print that Pam let me know was on sale at her site Real Women Quilt.

I really like the look of that quilt. I am putting some coins blocks together with the leftovers from my current scrappy friendship star quilt. I won't have enough on my coins for a quilt for a while - but yours is very motivating!
