I don't make commissioned quilts very often anymore, but when a sweet friend from college asked me to make her nephew a quilt, I couldn't resist. For one, I love her. And two, I made a baby quilt for her first nephew a few years ago!

She gave me a theme (western) and asked that the quilt look similar to the one I made originally. Other than that, I had free rein! 

I found this super cute John Wayne fabric by Riley Blake, and I paired with with a cream/red star print from my stash. 

I didn't use a pattern, but I cut out 5" squares and sewed them in random order, and then I appliquéd the name and cowboy hats. I finished it off with straight line quilting 1/4" on either side of each seam. 

Now...pictures!
