I went to Quiltfest in Birmingham, AL yesterday and got to see "The Supper Quilt".
Check it out here:

It was amazing. Some info from the website:

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.

While working full time as a dentist, Don took 2.5 years to sew the pieces together. He estimates that there are 1200 hours of work in this effort.
