The Supper Quilt Coming to Seminole Nation Museum

Posted by Ryan Bunyan on 09/06/2013

The Supper Quilt, a representation of da Vinci's The Last Supper, will be on display at the Museum on Sorghum Day, October 26.  Admission is free!

The quilt was made by Don Locke of Waxahachie, TX, a practicing dentist for over 43 years. Don took 2.5 years to sew the pieces together. He estimates that there are 1200 hours of work in this effort.

There are 51,816 pieces of fabric. Each piece measures 1/2 inch (1.25cm) on edge.

There are over 350 different fabrics used. Many were hand dyed by Don to obtain the correct color.

The entire quilt is 67 inches (5.6ft, 170cm) high and 183 inches (15.25ft, 465cm) wide.

The quilt has been viewed by over 750,000 individuals in thirty-eight states and six foreign countries.
