AIDS Quilt

During the conference held by Anne Balsamo, she brought up the project that involved the AIDS quilt. The AIDS quilt is a quilt that was assembled by donators to honor family and friends of loved ones that died due to AIDS. Anne Balsamo and her group brought this quilt to Washington DC In order to show and let people come and reminisce in their memories. Unfortunately the weather was not at par with sunny conditions, so they came up with an alternative idea. Anne and her team turned the 84,000 panel quilt into an online database. Not only did this benefit the people in Washington DC who could not see the laid out quilt, this allowed anyone in any state to view and reminisce in the memories.
