Riley Blake Designs John Wayne Americana Fabric Blog Tour

I grew up watching "The Duke" so sewing with Riley Blake Designs "John Wayne Americana"
fabric was a real trip back through time. John Wayne was one of the greatest stars of western movies!

John Wayne Americana - 60" x 70"

He was an all American hero!
Check out the patriotic it.

The John Wayne Americana collection for Riley Blake Designs is great for quilting, apparel and
home decor. This print features textured stars and sheriff badges. It is 100% cotton.

I used these fabrics for my John Wayne Americana quilt.

There's several Americana style designs in this quilt!

Quilting was by Ginger Turner of Sew Sassy Longarm.
She did a beautiful job with the perfect design...thanks, Ginger!

Of course, my crew was there to support me as always.

  1. What an awesome quilt. I think I own most of the westerns he made. I may be missing McLintock. During the winter when there wasn't a whole lot to do outside we would watch one or two.

  2. I love his WWII movies, too. This would be a favorite quilt if it were mine.

  3. And oh my gosh, you gave us the pattern free! Thank you so much!

  4. Well Pilgrim, I think you nailed it with this quilt! Duke would have loved this quilt himself.
