Sewing Sunday

I start quilts with a broad idea in my head, but not a full plan.  Some days it all goes the right way and Sunday was one of those days.  Even although the sun was shining, and the new raised bed in the garden was calling, the sewing machine won.  The sun streams right on to my machine in the afternoon at this time of year, so I got the best of the weather, albeit from inside.

Glimpses here , as one of these needs to be kept as a surprise.  Two tops ,each about 48  x 65 inches.

50s vintage fabric with indigo and bright batiks.  A few very small strips of an all time favourite Laurel Burch fabric, now out of print.
