Curious quilters want to know! This quilt is shown briefly at the beginning of Simply Quilts TV show episode #550, when Marti gives a short tour of the Houston Quilt Festival. It's one of the great quilts in Marti's book, Quilting For People Who Still Don't Have Time To Quilt. The instructions are in the book for making a quilt like it, but most or all of the Elvis fabrics shown in the quilt are no longer on the market.
"Where's Elvis?" WAS STOLEN while on exhibit at a European hobby show several years ago ~ now it can only be seen on that TV show and in Marti's book or slide shows. We think the quilt now resides somewhere in the southwestern United States, based on a conversation between Marti and a show visitor prior to the quilt's kidnapping.
that episode of Simply Quilts is aired, quilters call and
ask if we have photos of the Elvis quilt on our site ~ and
now we do! We appreciate the inquiries ~ it really is a fun
quilt. We hope you enjoy seeing Where's
We also ask that you contact us if you have any knowledge of the quilt's whereabouts.
Since its disappearance, Marti has been collecting Elvis fabrics as they've become available ~ and affordable! A chunk of one of these prints brought $250 at auction! Eventually, she will make a new Elvis quilt that will never be far out of sight.
