Terry Higgins Memorial Quilt panel 4 - Welshman

Panel 4 diagramThis panel celebrates Terry’s Welsh heritage.

To mark 40 years since Terry Higgins became the first named person to die of AIDS-related illnesses in the UK, Welsh artist Nathan Wyburn was commissioned by Terrence Higgins Trust to produce a portrait of Terry which was unveiled in the Senedd (Welsh Parliament). 

The portrait is now on display in the National Museum of Wales and is based on a previously unseen photograph from Terry’s school days in Haverfordwest. It’s painted in the colours of the Welsh flag using heart-shaped stamps – the symbol seen in our logo.

Tim Cooper, a member of The Quilters’ Guild, worked with Nathan to incorporate his art into the panel.
