Brief description & first look at the quilt of Jerry Wayne Fletcher

I am standing before a panel and HIV/AIDS block that was made for a “Jerry Wayne Fletcher”. I have noticed that some other quilts are kind of plain yet this quilt is heavily decorated. One of the first things that pop out at me is that they added a license plate from Alaska onto it. They also seem to have added small things of significance or things that contain a memory of him. For example, there is a red bandana, many pictures of him, his pink suspenders, a letter that a friend wrote to him, a mountaineering/ skiing badges and things demonstrating his mountain club. I realized the plaid that is placed behind the letters of his name aren’t just any type of cloth they come from a  piece of his shirt. The quilt when it comes to location on the block the panel is vertical and to the very far left at the bottom corner.
