From Jane Johnson: 

'When Franklin became the host of the International St Ayles Skiff Regatta to be held in the town in February, a seed was sewn (literally) to commemorate the event by producing a public artwork. From little things, big things have grown…or been sewn. Small stitches have become flowers, doors, windows, houses, a river and hills – the hand-made artwork that is the Franklin Quilt.  Project Designer and supervisor Jane Walduck commented  “As a group we tried to capture the historic ambience of the town by sewing 24 of the buildings along the Main Road." '
