    Yes, I have met he and Mrs. Locke when the quilt was displayed at Stichen Heaven here in Quitman. His wife is a jewel. The picture of them is about a 3x4 ft. and is also made from the small squares. Looks just like them.Unless he has done something in the last year or so these are the only 2 he has made.

    A group of us quilters were blessed to see and admire his rendition, it is incredible. If you ever have a opportunity to see this, do not pass up the chance.

    I saw this and visited with him at a quilt show in Dallas. Linda Taylor did the quilting for him. His quilt is one of those things that takes your breath away when you see it.

    My understanding is that they will go wherever, they are requested to go. The requesting organization just needs to pay for their transportation and lodging. I guess they can be contacted through their web site. Would certainly encourage everyone to see it if you get a chance!! Amazing!

    I saw it in Mt. Washington, Ky. last weekend at the Mt. Washington Spring Festival. Your photos are better than mine, but there's nothing like seeing it in person! What a wonderful collage. My daughter teaches textile arts in Louisville to talented high school juniors and seniors. I wish they could have seen it.

    More about their schedule can be seen at www.thesupper.net. Mrs. Locke told me they have had it to Barcelona, Spain in the past, so maybe they would come to England!
