VIDEO: How to Sew a Throw Blanket & Free Throw Blanket Pattern

This week, as part of our LIVE Sew Together Tuesday series, our National Educator Teresa Coates revisits a fan favorite as she shares her tips and tricks on how to sew a super-cozy luxe throw blanket!

She's mixing it up a bit — not only will she be streaming live from The Quilt Shop in Wakefield, NE (learn more about them, here), but she'll be using our extra-wide Luxe Cuddle® Mirage 80" fabric. The Quilt Shop has graciously put together some pre-cut Luxe Throw kits, so be sure to give them a call!
