Taking advantage of a sunny day

I had a pack of 5 inch squares that I had purchased for a donation quilt so I spent some sewing time getting it this far. I need to add some borders to make it a bit larger.

 We've had sunshine and unlike many parts of the country it's been quite warm (at least for January). I took advantage of that sunshine, used some black solar fast and printed a few leaves. At least one of them will show up soon as a weekly leaf.
The top two are on vintage silk drapery fabric, beige on the left and pink on the right. The bottom one is on a handed gold cotton. These were in my pile of fabrics that I keep ready to print, all torn to size and ready to go.
