I love this throw on my bed. It matches the bedspread except the squares are smaller in size, but the material is the same so I use it over the spread. As another reviewer mentioned, it's good to help keep cat hair off the larger bedspread so that the big one doesn't need to be washed so often. This throw does the trick and is much easier to throw in to the washer than a bedspread is. Now we don't have to kick the kitties off the bed at night, they like to sleep at our feet.
