How to start a fight with your sister

"MOM! He's touching me!"
Isn't that how it always starts?
And with quilting it starts with that special piece you finally found.  I'd been searching for a checkered fabric and found a bit at the J-store in Gainesville (GA) while visiting my son.
I thought it might look grand in Georgia's black and red.
Or maybe on some blue?
What about the set then? Straight set or on point?
Doesn't the Christmas fabric I found at the garage sale (the one I went to Friday and Saturday morning) look good with it?"
Or jettison the holiday print for a more seasonal red floral one? I like how the inside border frames the 12 patch center.
Then again I could go with something totally different like a floral with a white background...That's it. New UFO. I need a nap.
To make a Prairie, it takes
A Flower and one Bee,
One Flower and a Bee,
And Reverie.
The Reverie alone will do
If bees are few.

Students come back to the college this Monday. My new schedule for this 8 week semester has me working 6 days a week.  I know I can do it, but since I made the schedule, I wonder what the heck I was thinking. May bee some slow blogging for a while.

Quandary upon quandary . sounds like Sarah Lee pastry add fold upon fold. However I liked the green contrast also. A challenge for you at school, the students are very fortunate to have such an accomplished teacher and I am sure it shows out in there work.
