'Textile' Day on quilts, a workshop in association with the exhibition 'Textile Diversity'.
I explain my motivation for making a quilt panel for my son Danny and subsequently caring for the Dutch AIDS Memorial Quilt. Block 22 that has been donated to the Museum of European Cultures is one of in total 30 Dutch quilt blocks. I am very proud that parts of the Dutch AIDS Memorial Quilt - which I cared for for more than 20 years together with my friend and colleague Els Janssens - are in the process of finding a home in various Dutch and international museums.
