Memory quilt

I've been working on my vintage fabric piece. As I stitched and layered and handled the cloth, the phrase came into my mind - Like a thief in the night time slipped silently away.  It is a very reflective piece of work and it is throwing up all sorts of thoughts as I'm working on it. I aim to develop a series based on this piece -  it's nice to work in my comfort zone occasionally.

I must be careful not to overwork this memory quilt as the fabrics need to speak for themselves.

 The indigo fabric is part of the old quilt I'm using and the tray cloth and lace were part of the same purchase. I'm starting to picture them together in the next piece of work.
