Vicksburg, MS, Quilt Show (traditional quilts)

It's time to share some photos from the Old Man River Quilt Show in Vicksburg. Hope you enjoy these.

Firstly, "The Supper," a quilt made by Dr. Don Locke and has over 51,800 squares only ½ inch each. It is based on Leonardo DaVinci's "The Last Supper." Of course it's very impressive but one needs to stand quite a distance from the quilt to really appreciate its beauty. The closer you get to it, the more you can see the squares in "pixels" which distorts the overall picture. Never the less, it's amazing to see and I couldn't help but to think of the time it must have taken to make.

These are some of the traditional quilts from the show. 

Since I took about 100 pictures, I can share many more with you. So come back tomorrow, and I'll share some of the modern quilts that were in the show.
