I have a Gingerbread/Candy Cane theme for winter, so just had to have this one! I did hesitate, due to the price (I'm addicted to throws but rarely pay this much). Yo Yo style quilts and throws usually are a little expensive, due to the amount of workmanship that goes into them. This one EXCEEDS my expectations - you have to see it in person, to truly appreciate the color, patterns and the quality. It's heavy, too! The yo yo pieces add dimension, which makes it even more unique, compared to other holiday throws. The ticking pattern, on the back, blends well with my country-primitive decor. I honestly can't imagine putting this one away, when Springtime comes!
