Nita Markos of Hillsboro, IL won "Best of Show" for the Thread Tails and Vapor Trails Navy Quilt Challenge celebrating the Centennial of Naval Aviation.
Description: Pictured ghostlike the Curtiss Pusher biplane makes the first at sea landing on the ghostlike USS Pennsylvania. Partially pictured is the moder carrier, USS Ronald Reagan. In a colorful sky the Blue Angels fly into the future. The border shows the dates 1911 to 2011, "Into the Future." I made a model of the air plane to get the desired view. I made a drawing of the seal from a very small picture then copied it on my copier. My original border shows 1911 to 2011, "Into the Future."
