I used rich colors in this throw to make the floral prints really stand out. This quilt would look lovely on a couch, chair, bed or wherever you chose. It is made from all cotton fabric and batting. Measures 43x48-1/2. A perfect size to snuggle on the couch with. It has been prewashed once. You can wash in the handwash cycle and line dry to help preserve color. I would also use a color booster such as woolite for colors to wash this quilt. This would make an excellent gift for anyone, including you!
