“Patchwork” represents the stories and lives of women living in rural Bamberg, South Carolina during a time period of approximately 1939-1959. These God centered women created an atmosphere that allowed the participants to help their families. Quilting was their point of focus; however this activity provided an opportunity to share their challenging stories.
