Anna Alexandrovna’s quilt in progress!

To all those of you at the WAI conference (and others) who signed and wrote notes on some mysterious beige-colored cloth squares, you’ll be glad to know that my diligent and talented mom is hard at work assembling the “quilt of well-wishers.” It’s looking quite fantastic so far:

A little more than fifty people signed the quilt, including dozens of female military, commercial, and general aviation pilots, several of our illustrious “WASP” superstars (Women Air Force Service Pilots–WWII woman veterans who ferried military planes during the war), the Russian lady pilots who traveled to the Atlanta conference, and various folks who were involved with putting this translation/edition of RSBD together. 

Thanks, Mom, for your work and creativity, and let’s hope we can get Anna Alexandrovna this lovely gift sometime this summer.
