    I saw this quilt and it's pretty amazing. The quilt is huge and the patches are about an inch or so big.

    This man lives just a two hour drive from me, and I've met his wife, an extremely nice lady. We have him booked to display his quilt at our guild meeting in a few months. Here is the link to the official website for The Supper Quilt. http://www.thesupper.net/

    I have seen this quilt twice. It is amazing! If it is ever in your area, please take time to see it. Even the fingernails are tiny pieces of fabric. He says he have bought enought fabric to probably make another one, because he would buy 2,3,or 4 pieces and then decide they were not the right color. It is interesting to see how they handle the quilt and get it ready for display..

    Hi,
    This was at the Jacksonville, FL Quiltfest in 2007 or 2008 (time, you know??). It was located at the entrance to the quilt displays, and of course, I entered on the far end on the other side of the Hall. When I rounded the end of the first (last) row of quilts and started to go to the next row, I saw this from probably the distance of a city block. I could feel the magnetic pull and just could not stop myself. When I got close and saw the tiny pieces, I could hardly believe it. Yes, it was a religious experience for me and probably many others. Just breathtaking and that doesn't begin to describe it. Big WOW!

    That was very beautiful. I also was very, very dumbfounded when I went to http://www.loisjarvis.com About a month after the twin towers fell, she had a quilt where each diamond of a lone star was the face of all the identified angels lost that day. Go to ground zero and click on the center of the star a few times and the pictures become visible. It takes your breath away.

    This link didn't work for me. I believe the correct website address is www.loisjarvisquilts.com and it is absolutely amazing.
