The WWII Home Front Quilts Project is a collaboration of San Francisco Bay Area quilt enthusiasts, arts organizations, museums and historical associations, The Rosie the Riveter Trust, and National Park Service staff and volunteers. The Project sponsored a challenge for quilts depicting themes from the American WWII Home Front. The WWII Home Front theme was chosen to promote interest in the new NPS Rosie the Riveter/World War II Home Front National Historical Park, located in Richmond, California.

Forty-five quilts were chosen by a jury, and are exhibited at venues in the Bay Area and beyond. The quilts and their stories can also be seen in our online gallery.
