Create a Classic with This Scrappy French Braid Quilt
January 4, 2020 | Quilt Ideas|
It’s Great in Any Color Theme!
A traditional pattern has been updated and given a twist in this beautiful quilt. It’s sized so that classic French braids fit the top of the bed perfectly, while the twisted ribbon border creates dramatic dropped sides.
Start with eight darks and eight lights to give the quilt a scrappy look. It’s great in many color palettes so go through your stash and create a combination you love.
Sharp contrast between the lights and darks makes the braids stand out. Use a variety of print sizes, textures and shades to give the quilt interest.
This quilt is much easier than it looks, even for confident beginners, so have fun with this project.
Instructions are provided by the designer, Karla Hardaway, for quilts in the following sizes:
- Twin (90″ long x 72″ wide)
- Queen (95″ x 95″)
- King (95″ long x 112″ wide)
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
