WWII Nurses

I just learned that my quilt, WWII Nurses, has been accepted as part of the WWII Home Front Quilt Challenge that will be shown at a special exhibit at the Voices in Cloth quit show.   The quilts will also be displayed on an online exhibit and other Bay Area venues. The quilts in this exhibit honor civilian efforts on the home front during WWII and will help promote the Rosie the Riveter/World War II Home Front National Historical Park, located in Richmond, California.

WWII Nurses, 24″ x 16″, Hand Quilted, 2014

For this little 24″ x 16″ quilt, I superimposed this photo of my mom (lower left) with her nurse friends over the image of a US flag, then printed it onto fabric and added a border and hand quilting.
