The Foxglove

Lots of work over the past few days with the drawing of the foxglove for the foreground on the left hand side of the quilt.

Scaling took lots of time as did the numerous copies of tracing ........really my least favorate job!  Anyway the pattern is now complete and a start has been made on the leaves and first trumpet of the flower.  Sorry about the focus on the quilt photo, no idea what happened.....the damn camera is supposed to be self focusing lol.......apparently not on this occasion.

As always the detail comes later, for the moment just applying the fabric is enough.  I am liking the subtleness of the colours but as yet they don't show too clearly on the photo.  That will change as the layering , oversewing and detail is added.
