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!

Sewing a Cuddle® throw blanket is one of the simplest do-at-home projects around (great for both beginner and experienced sewists), and we've even put together a free downloadable throw blanket pattern (scroll down) to print out and reference!
What you'll need to sew a throw blanket
Here is what Teresa recommends for sewing a Luxe Throw:
- 4 yards of Luxe Cuddle® or 2.5 yards of Luxe Cuddle® Mirage 80"
- 90/14 Stretch needle (we recommend SCHMETZ)
- Art knife - optional (we recommend OLFA SAC-1 snap-off blade knife)
- Coordinating polyester thread (we recommend Mettler)
- Fabric clips (we recommend Clover Wonder Clips)
- Flat flower head pins (we recommend Clover)
- Rotary cutter with a fresh blade (we recommend OLFA)
- Stiletto (we recommend ByAnnie Stiletto)
