It wasnt the sofa! LOL It was my comforter on my bed. It is a purchased comforter although I have seen fabrics close to it.

I have really been strugeeling with this quilt, it is stupposed to have three broders all together. The next thing after that first border is to make geese fly areound that border. Being I dig those squares for those geese out of some squares I purchased a couple of years ago I am not able to get that fabric anymore and nothing I had in thousands of yards of stash struck me kindly enough to use with it so I had to go to this small wal mart about 30 miles from here today and try to find fall fabrics in the summer. Now that was a task. But I managed to skimp a few things together and I hope they flow with it because so far I love how it is looking.

OOPS! :wink:

I'm glad you were able to find some fabrics you like to make more geese.

That flag project looks cute!
