"My Velvet Elvis"

The 2012 Smoky Mountain Quilt Guild Show and Competition opened this morning. I'm pleased to say that my one and only entry was awarded an Honorable Mention in the Art Quilt Category PLUS the Embellishment special award ribbon.

The show runs tomorrow from 9am to 5pm and on Sunday from 11am to 4pm. I'll be there both afternoons.

Here's a better photo of just the quilt.

Way to go!! Congratulations Nellie. Love this FUN quilt! Did you get to hear any of what was said about it? I wonder what the traditional quilters thought of it. I especially like how you have used the loose threads in this one. Always evolving, like that!!

Thank you to all who are enjoying "My Velvet Elvis" vicariously.

Yes, Beverly, it will hang in the shrine room (aka guest room). I wouldn't even begin to make it before my husband would commit to making a space for it. Then I measured that area to determine how big I could go. ;-)
