A while ago I was refolding my red and white basket lattice quilt and was a bit taken aback with the border fabric. You see, I didn't remember the fabric I'd chosen as being so salmon. I remembered it as murky and a bit dull.
The quilt has been folded and refolded at the end of the bed and then hung over a rail. It is not sun damage, as the colour change is even all around. It has never been stored in a timber cupboard or box. The scrap piece has been stored at the bottom of clear plastic tub. The other reds appear unaffected. The quilt was made about 7-8 years ago and the fabric was used in another scrap quilt, six years ago, and yes it's undergone the same colour change too.
I'm now left wondering what colour will my border be in another 5 years!
