40″ x 40″
part of Thread Tails and Vapor Trails and art quilt exhibit celebration 100 years of Naval Aviation, honorable mention, appliqué
Since my husband is a naval aviator and I am an art quilter, when I found a call for entries for art quilts celebrating 100 years of naval aviation, I simple had to enter. It felt mandatory! The quilt includes an image of a P-3 Orion, wings of gold and a world map with a gold bead denoting every place my husband has landed a P-3. The quilt also incorporates pieces of a worn out navy flight suit.
