    My DD would love this, everything in her home has something to do with Elvis.

    That is amazing. I just might have to make an Elvis wallhanging for my daughter Stacey. She used to wiggle her little tush in the back yard when she was about 3 yrs old listening to Elvis.

    Being of the Elvis generation I had to laugh thinking about being 75 and being known as an Elvis fan since Elvis was such a shock/surprise with his swivel hips. Somehow the age of 75 doesn't go together with the image of Elvis until I stop and realize that Elvis would not be so young now and that maybe he would be like some of us now with a hip replacement. I hope your Aunt is still a swinger. I know the quilt had to have a lot of meaning for her. Thank you for giving her a time to remember when a person could understand the words to a song. As I write this there is one of those programs offering CDs from the 50s and Elvis is singing "Are you lonsome Tonight?".

    It is so well made and creative design. Every element was so thoughtfully chosen. It'll surely be treasured!

    Your comments made me smile and yes Aunt Marg did a little jive to "Blue Suede Shoes" at her party. Another Aunt had brought her Elvis CD's to the party and they played throughout the festivities :-)

    Great quilt. Though not 75 yet, I always loved Elvis (the pelvis). My Mom did also. Happy Birthday to your Great Aunt.
