February 16, 2013

The International Quilt Festival in Houston had a very moving exhibit, The Chevron Global AIDS Memorial Quilts: Life Stories in Fabric.  The quilts in this collection emphasize the continuing need for HIV/AIDS education, treatment and prevention.  Several of the quilts include blocks that memorialize someone lost to AIDS.  These blocks include personal items and remembrances of items or activities that person loved.  Each quilt was created by a Chevron employee volunteer.
