A lovely weekend in excellent company at Contemporary Quilt's Summer School held at Hillscourt Conference Centre near Birmingham. The first thing I saw was all these delightful orange Hieraceum's, 'Fox and Cubs' . There was also some interesting woodlands and grasslands - I spent a peaceful half hour on Sunday sketching this holly hedge and oak tree before breakfast.
We were here to work tho'! I was doing Annette Morgans' Image Transfer class ( I'd originally booked to retreat but I would have been 'Billy no-mates' on my own so was happy to join the workshop) and learnt a lot , particularly about the versatility of t-shirt transfer paper
Using old maps has given me some ideas for International Threads 'Sign and symbols' quilt I have yet to start. With all the marshes and orchards around Faversham , there's a large variety of marks to choose from.
