Giant Block Throw

Showcase your favorite large print fabrics in this four-block throw. Deep jewel tones, a warm gray, and medium-tone backgrounds stand out against a skinny fuchsia inner border and a multicolor zigzag print outer border. Fabrics are from the Primitiva collection by Jane Dixon and the Dimples collection by Gail Kessler, both for Andover Fabrics.
