On a recent trip to Canberra & a visit to the war memorial... a quilter can find inspiration in the most unusual places.
On the walls of "The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier".
(Seemed fitting to show this today as yesterday was AnZaC day)...

How beautiful, Chez. We've never been to the War Memorial in Canberra but home to one day.

What beautiful mozaics. I took photos of the floors at Admiralty House when we went to meet the Govenor General last year. I got some really strange looks LOL.
