I made this quilt as a surprise for friends who have a modern and stylish inner city apartment. Their décor is mostly neutral with dark mushroom coloured carpet, and off white walls/fittings. They have a fire engine red leather couch.
So it was made with two sides – hence the name Flip Side. The top in neutral colours (I just love the large spot fabric), and the back in red.
The red fabric was a nightmare in terms of the colour fastness. I washed it over a dozen times, soaked it with salt, and another time with vinegar. But the red dye still ran. So I have advised that they never get the quilt wet - unless of course they want a pink quilt :)
I quilted it with an allover feather design with the feathers curling in one direction, and more straight in the opposite direction.
