These customized quilts bring together the line work of topographical maps along with the tradition and elegance of widecloth cotton quilts. These heirloom quality quilts reference the topography of specific landscapes
and places which often hold a specific memory or meaning to the person who has commissioned the work.

The AIDS Memorial Quilt
has an official website. Its quilt image database
is browsable and searchable by name, and includes images of over 42,960 individual panels, each in honor of a lost loved one.
It's an utterly amazing testament to those claimed by the disease, and to those who have survived them.
