Patchwork Throw

I finished the patchwork throw yesterday and I am SO excited about how it turned out.  In fact, I was so excited that when the dryer buzzed after washing it, I almost fell running up the stairs.  LOL  (I wanted to post pics yesterday but it rained ALL day.)  You might remember I wasn't thrilled with the technique of sewing the blocks to muslin, instead of piecing them together.  I wasn't sure it would turn out right.  But I think it just looks great!  I already cuddled up on the couch with it last night while I was reading.  I intended on putting the stripe a bit more to the side, but I had a cutting incident with the white backing, so that's where it ended up.  :-)

The quilt is made up of Amy Butler's Midwest Modern lines and Bella Solids for the white backing.  I quilted free motion style and it measures about 50" x 70".   Overall, I'm very happy!
