I love John Wayne westerns, so does my husband. When I saw that a fabric company was coming out with a John Wayne fabric I thought “cool”, I need to make my husband a John Wayne quilt!
I thought that I could find the fabric at the Houston quilt show, but no such luck! Apparently EVERYONE LOVED THE FABIC!!!So there was none to be found!!
After returning home from the show, Doris found it online and ordered the kit. She gave me the website she ordered it from but I had spent my wad at Houston so was dragging my feet on ordering the kit. I wanted it but…………
Anyway, Doris secretly made her quilt and told me that she had a lot of fabric left over from the kit and that I could probably get another quilt from it! I then ordered the panel and one yard of fabric. Using the fabric I ordered and Doris’s leftover fabrics, I was able to make my husband a quilt. We both gave our husbands their John Wayne quilts for Christmas and they were blown away!! I even managed to quilt them without my husband seeing them.
Doris’s quilt, made from the kit.
My quilt, made from leftovers and an additional yard of fabric.
Both our husbands LOVED their quilts and were totally surprised on Christmas morning!! 😀
