Saturday, we went to Bethlehem Revisited in Waxahachie, TX. It is a great live demonstration about Bethlehem at the time of Jesus's birth. They have set up the city of Bethlehem and give a lot of information about what it was like about that time and have mini plays throughout it. Unfortunately, we went the last weekend and it was so crowded we really could not see anything. However, we did get to see an awesome quilt! It has to be one of the most beautiful quilts I have ever seen! It is a mosaic of the Lord's Supper.
here. This is a traveling quilt and has been seen all over! All of that information is in the link I gave.
The quilt was made by piecing 51,816 squares of cotton fabric together with a Singer featherweight (one of these days I'll have a featherweight!). Over 350 different colors were used! The squares finished out to 1/2 inch! Can you imagine working with 1/2 an inch squares? Mrs. Locke showed an example here:
I hope you have enjoyed this quilt as much as I have!
