I don't know about you, but sometimes when I make a quilt, I have some leftovers. Don't get me wrong - I love these leftover pieces of fabric and I love looking at them on my shelf, but I should probably put them to some good use.
One thing that I really like about the Virginia Quilt Pattern is that it is fat quarter friendly, but it also includes instructions for a "more variety," scrappy version that is perfect for all of those leftovers.
This version uses some blacks and some citron-y yellows like the First Light version, but is a little funkier and a lot of fun.
I really like that the pattern lets you see your fabric - we aren't cutting it all into tiny pieces, we are displaying the fabric so we can enjoy it in quilt form.
For the backing, I splurged and bought yardage of my favorite print from the collection. I know, I was supposed to be using up fabric from my stash, not buying new stuff. I couldn't help myself!
The binding is my go-to-entirely-too-often black solid and I love how it frames the quilt.
If you would like to make your own version of the Virginia Quilt Pattern, you can pick up a copy in the shop.
