Airplane Quilt

American Quilter.  Fall 1993.

My wife is involved with quilting, and I saw this magazine in her collection.  The quilt was entitled "Air Show" by  Jonathan Shannon of Belvedere, CA.  Judged Best of Show at the 9th annual AQS Show & Contest 1993.

"As the first male winner of the AQS Best of Show Award, Jonathan hopes this win will encourage other men to enter the quilt world.  He hopes the honor will demonstrate to them how welcome they will be as quiltmakers.  For Jonathan, quiltmaking transcends gender barriers."

Well, the gauntlet was thrown.
