Design Wall Monday-November 21

The quilt is all done. I decided that the sky needed a bit of quilting so added the knots there. It was presented last Wednesday and is being signed by parishoners on the back. The binding is dark blue, and very thin. I hand stitched it down because it is so thin. The shape of the wall quilt isn't really weird like this.
I have been working on this loveseat today. We have a small living room, and have had a large-ish couch in there that just took up too much room. We have been looking for something else and when we went to Ikea on Friday evening to buy chairs (one in red one in gray with covers that I can dye) we found the love-seat. I've had fabric for a while to cover the other larger couch, but never got to it. Too complicated. But when I saw how this loveseat is put together I decided I could do it.

Here are the parts and the fabric. I made slips for the arms and one larger piece to staple over the seat. I was going to piece it but figured out that it would be much easier to just staple it. I still have to cover the back, and that means piecing, but I don't think it will take too long.
Here it is sorta stacked together to look like a loveseat. It's just the parts, but I like it. Not really a design wall, but it is sewing.

I, too, have a small living room. At present, there are 2 massive recliners and an oak rocking chair. Can you tell me the name of the love seat (doesn't Ikea furniture have names?) so I can look up the dimensions? Thanks.

The quilt is beautiful! Congratulations on such a lovely finish. The couch project is quite ambitious! Good luck with that projects - and I agree all sewing is a very good thing!

Your finished tree quilt is fabulous!! I've actually loved it every step of the way. Since you're covering furniture, did you see last months (or the month before) Quilter's Newsletter magazine where a man has been doing patchwork quilt art upholstery covering furniture? Quite amazing! Wish I had the nerve to try it.
