This past week, the National Mall in Washington DC hosted 48,000 panels of quilt blankets covering 29 acres of land for the AIDS Memorial Quilt project started by the NAMES Project Foundation. With over 50 locations around the DC area, these breathtaking quilts are composed of eight 3′ x 6′ panels (the dimension represents the size of a human grave) sewed together to form a a 12′ x 12′ block.
