Canberra Stitches, Craft & Quilt Show

I’ve just had a few days away in Canberra, our beautiful capital city, and found some time to visit the above show.  The quality of the quilt entries was outstanding and the winner of the open section, Jenny Bowker, submitted a fascinating and skillful triptych.

What was equally as interesting as I wandered amongst the many, many quilts were the Do Not Touch signs – which were definitely worth a photo!!
