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!
