    I was just at a Quilt show in Jackson, WY. Quilting in the Tetons. This quilt is a must see if it is ever in your area. The quilt was finished in 1999 took the quilter 2 and half years to finish. He is Dentist Donald E. Locke, of Waxahachie, Texas this was only his second quilt. It's a photorealistic quilt of Leonardo da Vinci's The Last Supper. There are 350 different fabrics,51,816 half-inche squares and is 15.3 feet wide by 5.5 feet high. I asked him being new to quilting what made you take on this project he laugh and said I didn't know any better at the time his 2 son's thought he'd lost his mind, but all are very proud of his work. It is amazing and a must see quilt.

    I have actually seen this Quilt and it is a must see if you ever can! It is just stunning, mind blowing & a real piece of art. The man that made it is so very talented. Hope he has more in the works.

    They had this quilt on display at the International Quilt Show Chicago a few years back. He and his work are just incredible.
