WIP Wednesday

Yikes! 
We are getting a ton of rain! Good thing I got my yard work done on the week-end.
Which now leaves me free to catch up on my sewing projects.
I have one finish....
This is another of the Swoon blocks I did a couple month ago.
I wanted to practice my FMQ, so I decided to pick one of the blocks and do a lot of dense quilting...


For some reason I put it away, and kinda forgot about it.
Luckily, I found it this week and finished it off!
Bound and hung on the wall!
Love how the back looks too!
*****
I have my Sew Out Loud blocks all joined and I'm in the process
of quilting it...
Should be done by next week.
*****
My love of Summersville continues.
After I finished From Summersville to New York..
    I continued cutting fabric for new cushions for the sofa...
They are 24"
I have only done one so far...

I quilted the front and put in an invisible zipper.
I don't think I'll do the second one identical..
All those freakin' hst's!!
maybe chevron or something similar.
Any suggestions?
*****
I am a bit disappointed in myself for not doing any more quilting on Ocean View, but maybe this week if it keeps raining!!
So, all that's left to do is show you a couple of photos of "the girls" Sheriti & Kissa
 Time to link up to Lee at Freshly Pieced
&
Monika at TN&TN.
Have a great sewing week!
