Quilt Now Quilts Except in One Place

The memorial AIDS quilt debuted in 1987. As the number of people who succumbed to AIDS grew so did the use of the quilted memorial. At the 2012 International AIDS Conference thousands of quilt panels appeared on the National Mall. Jesuit Tim O’Brien revealed the one place tens of thousands of panels can be safely displayed in all seasons.
