Infinite Legacy’s Donor Memorial Quilt celebrates the memory of those who have given the gifts of life and hope through organ, eye and tissue donation. These quilts are displayed at events throughout the Mid-Atlantic region, honoring the memory of generous donors and raising public awareness about the lifesaving power of donation.

Prior to merging in January 2023, The Living Legacy Foundation of Maryland (The LLF) and Washington Regional Transplant Community (WRTC) each had their own respective quilt program. WRTC’s Donor Memorial Quilt began in 1995 and The LLF’s followed in 2001. Collectively, the two organizations completed 47 quilt panels. The first Infinite Legacy quilt panel will begin in April 2023 at the annual Ceremony of Remembrance.

One seam of each quilt panel is always left open to allow for new “patches of love” to be added. When one panel is completed, a new panel is started. No two squares are the same; each is as unique as the individual it represents, and all held together by the common thread of love.
