Nancy made the quilt in honor of the victims who lost their lives at the Mother Emanuel AME Church in Charleston last June. The quilt was also displayed in the lobby of the church before Nancy donated it to the congregation during Sunday services. Reverend Dr. Betty Deas Clark, Pastor accepted the quilt on behalf of the congregation and the families of those who were lost. The quilt will remain in the Sunday school area and be used as a learning tool. The quilt featured the names of the victims and the words ‘We are One’, the slogan chanted by Charlestonians after the tragedy.

Nancy is a member of the Sea Island Quilters and lives on St. Helena Island.
