My sister is a quilt-maker extraordinaire. This quilt is entitled "Letters from Home". It is a collage of letters and pictures of my Dad from World War II. One leter from my grandfather is a kick; "Dear Boy, Had turnips for dinner. They always make me think of you. Dad (6-10-44). The quilt will be shown at the Craneway Pavilion next week and later be displayed at the Rosie the Riveter Museum
The quilt is one of thirty in a WW11 Home Front Quilt Challenge. The quilts depict a variety of activities that occurred on the homefront during WW11. They can be seen, along with a couple of hundred other quilts, at the East Bay Heritage Quilt Show this weekend (Mar 22-23) at the Craneway Pavillion (which is right next to the Rosie the Riveter WW11 Homefront National Historical Park).
After the show the Homefront Quilts can be see at the Richmond History Museum from Arpil 5-June 6
