Backside of Elvis

Here's the backside of "My Velvet Elvis" that's exhibited in the Smoky Mountain Quilt Guild Show.
The main body of the quilt has the heavy flannel with the image of Elvis. It had been a damaged wall hanging that was in a friend's shop. Nobody wanted to buy it at even a much reduced price so he gave it to Lee. You may recognize the fabric in the three borders. I think it was one of the early ones on the market a number of years ago.

Today is the last of the three day quilt show. So by tonight the above picture of Elvis will be up against the wall of the shrine room while the other side adds even more sparkle to room.

And wasn't he gorgeous when he was young? I often wish quilt shows had the space to hang quilts so we could see the backs -- this is worth seeing, and not just when a white gloves lady lifts a corner of it.

No old sheet backings on your quilts! It's a pity to hide this on the back.

When you said backside of Elvis I was almost afraid to look! :P

Seriously it is the perfect compliment to the front.
