Cute and Cuddly Throw

Use plush fabrics to piece an easy throw that takes advantage of the 58" width of the fabrics—it’s the perfect easy-to-make gift! Fabrics are from the Nested Owls collection by AdornIt and the Kozy Cuddle collection, both from Shannon Fabrics.

Inspired by From the Ground Up from designers Linda Jenkins and Becky Goldsmith of Piece O’ Cake Designs
Quilt tester: Elizabeth Beese

Note: Because the fabric has stretch, working with plush can be a different experience. Senior editor Elizabeth Beese pieced this quilt entirely on a serger, which easily controlled the stretch of the fabrics. “I also cut pieces a little larger than the original so I could use 1⁄2" seam allowances,” she says.
