"The Supper Quilt"
The Supper Quilt was inspired by Leonardo daVinci's "The Last Supper" painted 500 years ago on the wall of a Dominican Cloister in Milan, Italy. This interpretation contains 51,816 squares, each is a 1/2 in square. The quilt is 67 inches high and 183 inches wide and quilted by internationally known long arm quilter, Linda V Taylor, formally of McKinney, TX. During the quilt show, Dr. Locke will share his journey of making "The Supper Quilt".
