Finish It Up Friday...A Throw For A House!

I have been using this finish for a few weeks now.
When I purchased my house last year I also purchased this quilt kit from Connecting Threads thinking it would fit right in as a throw quilt.
I finished the top several months back, may be even last year.
It is indeed fun to make projects for yourself:)  I did free motion quilting in each of the stripe/chevrons.  I did back and forth loopy things but tried to NOT make them symmetrical and even.
After I did the prints I only did an echo line along the seams in the gray.  As you can see it did a bit of shifting and just looked weird!
And so I picked it up again and did the same loopy free motion design in the gray "rows" as well.  Much better!
There was a sale I think or I just splurged, can't remember, but I picked out one of the fabric line prints to use for a backing.  So pretty!
And now it is used daily on my fabulous couch!  Hurray for a finish!
I snuggle down in it as I sit and watch the fire!


  1. Congrats! on your newly completed quilt. Snuggling by the fire with it sounds really nice. Enjoy!!

    1. Snuggling by the fire is very nice! We'll are supposed to get a major cold blast this weekend and that is where I will be...when I am not sewing!

  2. I love this one! I have that same Joel Dewberry print, as your backing, in a different colorway...I just love it! And congratulations on a new house!!!!!
