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, chosen by a jury, are featured in the beautiful new book, Remembering Life at Home: Collected Works from the WWII Home Front Quilts Project, which is available for $20 at the Park Visitor Center in Richmond, CA. Proceeds from the book go to support the work and programs of the non-profit Rosie the Riveter Trust.
