so... my aunt calls me up not so long ago and tells me the local fabric shop has elvis fabric. i had seen it (hubby loved it, i said NO) and thought... what sort of person really wants an elvis quilt in neon 80's colours?  turns out my young cousin does that's who.

so auntie bought the fabric and i made the quilt for her birthday in june.  since there was lots of fabric left over i also threw together a big zippy pouch/make up bag, a change purse and a tote bag...
i don't have a pic of the back but it was much more neutral, sort of tealy and beige elvii instead of neon. 
the green blocks are elvis heads and the other block is a hot pink silhouette elvis on green...




the aunt picked up her parcel the other day and actually squealed with delight... nice Cheesy

Seeking scraps! I'm in need of a variety of white on white scraps. (2.5inch square minimum) for pixel quilts. Have any? Swap for? PM me! Smiley

Fabulous! My MIL would die if she saw this. Her #1 is really The Beatles, but Elvis is in close second. Tongue

Fantastic!

Who makes this fabric? I am thinking this might be an interesting way to commemorate in in-law's time in Vegas. They've lived there the past 7 years and are getting rid of nearly everything and moving to American Samoa in June (halfway between Hawaii & New Zealand). Yes, crazy I know! Anyone looking to adopt 2 golden retrievers?

Sorry for the randomness of that entire comment!

Ha!  I bought the exact same fabric to do the exact same thing, but never got around to it.  It looks wonderful!

i'm not sure who makes the fabric but a google search for 'elvis fabric' turns up dozens of hits...  but i wish i had found the blue hawaii stuff instead of jailhouse rock....

This has inspired me to delve into my stash of Elvis fabrics. My fil would love this.
