An Elvis Quilt for Roger

My father-in-law, Roger, is a huge Elvis fan.  When I found this quilt panel a few years ago I knew that I would have to make a quilt for Roger! 

Roger loves taking afternoon naps on the couch, so a lap blanket would be perfect for him. 
I added a thin white and a thick grey border around the main panel to make the quilt into a lap blanket size. 
For the quilting I did some stippling around the edge.  I added some free motion musical notes at each corner.
(sorry the pictures are so terrible)

In each of the Elvis blocks I free motioned around Elvis (not easy!) and then I did stitched each set of jail bars. 

I was a hit!
