Setting Out Fat Quarters

Janice set out a variety of fat quarter cottons arranging and rearranging colors until she was happy one brown she kept tossing out, then pulling back in she loved making quilt decisions she had a new pattern, old to many, new to her have you started on it yet? Her sister asked. sis did not sew, could not understand the delight in preparation. Janice could not be hurried. This was a major project. it would last her all winter. She was going to take her time. almost done, she lied, to get her off her back.

Good poem, Caren. For me it was the classic case of "buttinsky."
