AIDS Blanket or Quilt, or Names Project

AIDS Blanket or Quilt, or Names Project is perhaps the best known and most touching single symbol of the more than 250,000 people who have died from HIV/AIDS in the United States is the AIDS Blanket or Quilt, also called the AIDS Memorial Blanket.

Since the AIDS Blanket was started in 1987, more than 40,000 colorful panels have been created to remember and honor loved ones who have been lost as a result of HIV/AIDS.

There are more than 750,000 persons in the U.S. today with HIV/AIDS. Of great concern, more than 250,000 people in this country who are infected with HIV don’t know it.
