I grew up watching western type shows on TV, including ones with John Wayne, so it was a sweet
treat to sew Riley Blake Designs fabric with my favorite TV cowboy in the panels. John Wayne
was born Marion Robert Morrison, but a fireman in Glendale, California, "started calling him
"Little Duke" because he never went anywhere without his huge Airedale Terrier, Duke. He
preferred "Duke" to "Marion", and the nickname stuck." We all knew who "The Duke" was!
Finished quilt measures: 60” x 72”
I love those small panel sections from John Wayne's movies!
The beautiful quilting was done by Quilted Works.
The background is an abandoned shack in Washington, Utah.
The colors in the RBD fabrics are so bright and vibrant in any setting!
So many amazing prints!
