What to do?

I just finished the blocks for my Scrappy Irish Chain.  It is all over the family room floor waiting for inspection before I pin the blocks for sewing.  Ooops, just saw the extra chain block in the corner where an alternate block should be.  I guess it is good for the blocks sit for a minute before moving them along to the next step.
Green Crumbs are on the frame.  The quilting on that is about half done I think.  I did a little bit during the week, but there wasn't much time. 
The bow-ties are my biggest dilemma though.  I ran out of the cheddar background fabric and need to decide what to use for the setting triangles.  I bought a green that I thought might work, and then found a cream with cheddarish flowers on it.  I also entertained the thought of doing a medley of different colors to match the colors of each row.  I'm not sure where to head with this one honestly.  I guess I will wait for inspiration to strike.  It has been up forever though and I'd like to get the rows put together soon.
It is great to have a wide open weekend and time to putter.  For once I don't even have a stack of papers and lesson plans waiting.  With that thought in mind, I'll go decide what is next.

For the bowties...what about two triangles to make up a setting of the colour of the diagonal row above and one of the colour of the diagonal row below. Do you know what I mean?
