Welcome to the “Patchwork of History”, a special event of the Vevay-Switzerland County Bicentennial. We are honoring quilters past and present from our county as well as social and service organizations that have a long term history in Switzerland County. Quilt making has been part of the lives of the women in Switzerland County from its distant past to the ongoing future. The array of quilts is breathtaking. It is our pleasure to share these treasures with you.

Hope you enjoy these glimpses into the "Patchwork of History" exhibit. Due to the number of quilts shared, many quilts had to be hung over a rod so only half of it could be pictured. Others were cropped to show detail.
