The Duke John Wayne Quilt Pattern is the perfect quilt for a family who loves Westerns! Make a quilt honoring fond memories watching John Wayne movies. This gorgeous quilt would make a lovely wall hanging or bedspread. It's perfect to curl up with while watching one of these old timey Westerns! The star border is gorgeous and pulls from all the colors in the central motif just beautifully. This is a relatively quick quilt to complete since the focal image is so massive! Celebrate your love of John Wayne with a nostalgic and lovely new quilt.

NotesMeasurements include ¼” seam allowance.

Sew with right sides together unless otherwise stated.

Not too sure I would incorporate a star into my quilt project but this is very nice, I know my dad would have loved it, he was a fan.

this would be perfect for my husband who is a huge jw fan.

Growing up my dad would always make me and my sisters watch John Wayne movies mainly because he didnt have any sons yet lol so we all grew up loving his movies even after my brother came along even to this day Saturday and Sundays are John Wayne Days

The Duke John Wayne Quilt is beautiful!!! Thanks for sharing.

This looks beautiful. My dad would love this. But I also think other stars of the 1950's and 1960's Audrey Hepburn would make a good one. Also, Lucille Ball, I think in one of her iconic skits would be great. This is a great keepsake gift for sure.
