A throw is handy. You can snuggle up with it on the sofa when you read a book or watch a movie, use it as a picnic blanket, a baby blanket, or even as a tablecloth overlay. Patchwork is lovely and so easy to do if you have a scrap pile of fabrics, or better yet, if you have a pile of fabric samples in the same color or pattern theme. I like an organic, freestyle method of putting together patchwork items, and I like to “throw” out all rules when I make pieced throws. No patterns, no measuring, no batting, no matching the thread, and absolutely NO ironing between steps. No need for ironing seams open, because I take care of flattening the seams with a zigzag topstitch. Only after the throw is turned right side out and nearly complete do I iron it. This throw is easy to make, reversible, great looking, comforting, and useful in so many ways.
