Another No Name Finish

The pattern is Lincoln Watch and the fabric is Coventry by Jo Morton- Coventry means the state of being ostrocized or being banished.  Don't like Lincoln's Watch for a name.  Suggestions always welcomed.  When I first started making these blocks from hell, I didn't think I'd like the quilt, because each block separately is pretty ugly.  However friends encouraged me and when I had about 10 (of the 120) done I laid them out and squinted and saw the pattern emerging and kept on.  My husband loves this quilt so this will his.  I quilted it heavily.  I even added more in the lighter parts of the blocks I showed earlier.  The border is full of feathers. 

With the leftover fabrics I whipped up this quick quilt for our guilds Charity committee. 


Two more days of work and then I'm off to the beach for 4 days of sewing with friends.  Can't wait - I have the most of my stuff packed already.  :)

Thanks for looking.

Your quilt is absolutely gorgeous!! I'm sure your husband adores it :) It's always an added benefit when you can create something with leftovers for a charity project.
