About this Quilt

quilt-virginia-braid-flat

Reproduction fabrics get a modern update in this intriguing quilt design by Vikki Burton. Virginia Braid is a modern take on a traditional pattern. The log cabin blocks are jazzed up with bright colors that give this quilt a surprisingly modern feel.

Vikki’s quilt finishes at 72 x 96” making it the perfect size for a twin bed or to wrap up in on the sofa. Virginia Braid is an extremely flexible pattern and one that would be a good staple to add to your pattern collection. Large patches make this quilt go together fast and easily making it great for a beginner. It would also be a great quilt to make as a gift since it can be assembled quickly. You can also easily adapt this pattern for a boy or man by choosing more masculine fabrics. Imagine sending a high graduate off to college with one of these beautiful quilts for his/her dorm room bed. In fact, Virginia Braid is made up of 12 (24”) log cabin blocks that are so simple to piece, you may have trouble stopping at just 12!
